COVID-19:We’re far from out of the woods


As lockdown for some continues to ease, the unfurlough continues and we return to our workplaces, are some perhaps becoming complacent to the danger still present? Nina Wyers, Marketing and Brand Director at The Floorbrite Group, investigates.


When writing this article, Leicester was the first of our cities to enter a local lockdown followed by Greater Manchester, and areas of Lancashire and West Yorkshire, with a list of further cities, towns and boroughs at risk to follow shortly.


The UK was first hit by Coronavirus at the end of January, we locked down in Spring, we are nearing the end of Summer, Autumn is


around the corner and before long Winter and our flu season will return, with potential for a further nationwide spike.


How long will this last? How many more towns will lock down? But most importantly, how can we limit the spread of COVID-19?


The guidelines are clear: Wear a face covering in public spaces where you could be at risk, such as shops and public transport. Stay alert to the risks that may be present as pubs, restaurants and the leisure sectors continue to open. Continue to wash and sanitise your hands frequently.


However, we predict a much greater reliance on and respect for our army of cleaners, janitors, and

housekeeping teams. Across the country the fight will fall to them to keep the deadly pathogens at bay.


Business owners must plan a robust ongoing hygiene program to give their employees and customers peace of mind and confidence in returning to them. Wiping surfaces once each day will not suffice if the surface becomes infected five minutes later. How many people could contract Coronavirus in a workplace if one infected person touches a door handle or handrail at the beginning of the day?


We have seen the impact across the world in manufacturing sites forced to close their doors due to the virus running rife within them. But the return to office workplaces has only just begun. How will they fare? Increased cleaning frequencies to high touchpoint areas is now a basic priority.


All businesses will want to offer reassurance to staff and customers by having a more visual and on demand cleaning system in place. Cleaning is no longer reserved for after hours when everyone has gone home. How well your premises is cleaned will become a badge of honour, to market to your customers, to promote as being the safest, the cleanest, the healthiest, the most caring, the most innovative, the most COVID-free.


The reality is, customers will be looking for contractors to offer solutions to COVID-19 that will eliminate or greatly reduce exposure for their workforce or general public. They will be keen to demonstrate that they have provided the latest in innovation in order to give staff and public peace of mind, and confidence in returning to work and public spaces.
