Evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 is spread like other respiratory viruses: by infectious droplets released in close proximity to the mouth, eyes or nose of an exposed person, or by direct contact with those droplets. Direct contact could refer to touching a contaminated surface and then touching the eyes, nose, or mouth.
The earlier announcement of Alert Level 3 lockdown has brought a relaxation on some of the restrictions that had been placed on various business sectors. If your business is one of those that have opened or are getting ready to open then here are useful branding and signage tools to help you keep your customers and employees safe.
- Social Distancing Floor decals
Social distancing is a key part preventing the transmission of the virus. We know that the SA Government recommends that you maintain at least 1 metre distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. It is easier to manage social distancing in queues by using stickers that guide the distance that consumers should keep away from each other. These stickers are effective for placing outside your business entrance, at tills and anywhere where customers are expected to queue.
- Window decals for communicating processes
It is also important to communicate to your customers before they enter your premises. Important information that should be communicated is
- The importance of social distancing
- The wearing of a mask as a protocol for entering your premises
- The need for sanitizing hands before entry into your premises
- Amended trading times
- Masks and Face Shields upon entry
The South African Government advises us to avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands (https://sacoronavirus.co.za/)
Safety is of utmost importance during this pandemic. Ensure the safety of your employees by issuing them with face masks or face shields. We know that these products are effective in reducing the transmission of the virus from surfaces or other carriers, to the eyes, nose and mouth. While masks are also effective, face shields are also beneficial because they discourage the user from touching his or her face. They also easy to wipe with a disinfectant or sanitizer.
