What You Can Do To Protect Yourself And Your Members
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), to protect yourself (and your members) against COVID-19:
· Wash your hands frequently
· Maintain social distancing
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
· Practice respiratory hygiene
Additionally, the CDC recommends:
· Stay at home if you have a fever, respiratory symptoms, or believe you are sick
· Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces
· Disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated with germs after cleaning
Here's what some GWA members are doing in their flexible office space to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
"We have recently installed a wall-mounted hand sanitizer pump in the general space, and have placed another pump at the front desk."
"We have provided anti-bacterial wipes that members may use to wipe down their workspace."
One of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is handwashing. Here's a helpful chart courtesy of the World Health Organization that you can post throughout your flexible office space.
