Ensure staff and volunteers are aware of their responsibilities in regard to:
- Social distancing especially in shared areas such as lunchrooms
- Personal cleaning of their work areas including desks, computers, phones etc
- Personal hygiene, including frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitiser.
Ensure your team is safe by:
Encouraging minimal contact (limit handling of money)
Install sneeze guards if necessary in reception areas
Provide and promote hand sanitiser for patrons to use on entering your facility
Display symptom reminder for patrons.
Also, identify areas that are high traffic and accessed by the public and establish procedures to adequately clean these surfaces, as they may present a potential risk to COVID-19 transmission. The cleaning frequency should be increased to at least twice per day when the venue is being used.
