  1. Advise consumer that for everyone's protection you will be practicing social distancing, wearing gloves and a mask when working in their home. Request that consumers (including pets and children) to be out of rooms and areas while you are present. Inquire if anyone in the home or acquaintances are ill with cold/flu, if so, reschedule.
  2. Stand back, keep your distance from others, 6-10 ft. is best (cough and sneeze zone). Wear a face mask (particulate respirator N95%, surgery mask, bandana) at all times when working and when traveling in congested public spaces. (shopping, traveling, if closer than 10 ft. to someone else, etc.).
  3. No handshakes or hugging (for now), Arm/Elbow bumping is in. Use phones & email to reduce personal contact. Do not share, use your own desk, phone, computer and stapler, etc. Clean & disinfect surfaces and items frequently.
  4. Keep your hands and fingers away from your eyes, nose, mouth, face and body. This is the most common way to infect yourself.
  5. Keep hands/fingers away from your eyes, nose, mouth, face and body.
  6. Put gloves on (don) before you start work and take them off (doff) when you stop work. Use fresh gloves in each home or clean & disinfect gloves before removing and reuse.
  7. Wash your hands frequently and apply sanitizer gel before and after going to the restroom, eating or taking off your gloves or mask. Wear mask & goggles when mixing chemicals or mist or dust is in the air.
  8. Be creative, find ways to avoid touching high use contact points (items touched /used repeatedly by others - knobs, handles, phones, push buttons, building entrances, elevators, conference and bathrooms) instead use an arm, shirt sleeve, elbow, foot, paper towel, gloves. Use credit cards or E-pay, avoid cash).
  9. Use disinfectant solution or wipes to regularly clean all high-touch surfaces such as light switches, elevator buttons, hand rails, drinking fountains, phones, door push plates and handles, counters, desks, keyboards, etc. Do the same at home, when you travel or use public facilities. Carry sanitizer gel/wipes with you.
  10. Use vacuum cleaners, auto-scrubbers and carpet extractors with HEPA filtration.
  11. Do not use brooms or dust mops for dry soil removal.
  12. Do not return soiled wet mops or cleaning cloths to same bucket or container. Replace cleaning solution, mops, cloths regularly (when they become cloudy, visibly soiled or per policy) to prevent loss of effectiveness and contamination. Some areas require single use only. Mix cleaning chemicals per label instructions and allow specified dwell time for disinfectants, (up to 7-10 Min.).
  13. Do not go to work if you are sick (cough, cold, flu, temperature, shortness of breath, runny nose, open wounds). Those reporting to work sick Must be sent home and referred to their personal physician.

One Last Thought:

Protect and take care of the vulnerable members of society; the disabled, elderly and medically challenged. Show respect and gratitude for those who protect us and fearlessly come running when we need help. The best thing you can do right now is to stay away from others and see that you and everyone else you come in contact follows the tips listed above.

This is important: it's the right thing to do. Lives depend on your actions.

Good luck, stay healthy and Keep it Clean and Safe out there.
