Q: How do I keep employees who interact with customers safe?
A: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to keep your employees safe, you should:
Consider ways to increase physical space between employees and customers such as opening a drive-thru, building partitions, and marking floors to guide spacing at least 6 feet apart.
At least once a day clean and disinfect surfaces frequently touched by multiple people. This includes door handles, desks, phones, light switches and faucets.
Consider assigning a person to rotate throughout the workplace to clean and disinfect surfaces.
Consider scheduling hand-washing breaks so employees can wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
Consider scheduling a relief person to give cashiers and service desk workers an opportunity to wash their hands.
