Tips To Resume Business In A Pandemic


In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, complete lockdowns were essential to give public health systems time to research the virus and establish effective protocols to limit transmission. Businesses also needed time off to plan how to implement new public health measures and adapt to the current situation. We are now facing the bigger challenge of resuming work amidst a pandemic. As governments start easing regulations, most businesses are resuming regular operations, with notable adjustments.

Here’s a list of ideas and strategies to get back to business while managing the risk of workplace COVID-19 outbreaks.

1- Work Schedule and Team Division

Don’t start with a crowded return. First, divide your team into smaller groups. Second, create a new schedule. In some contexts, it may be effective to divide operations into morning, afternoon, and night shifts. Or, staff can come in on alternate days, with half coming in on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and half on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. By implementing this strategy you provide a spacious workplace, respect social distancing, and reduce contact between employees.

2- Detect Possible Outbreaks in the Workplace

It’s important for visitors to feel safe when they come to your shop, restaurant, or other business. You can use IoPlus, a no-touch contact tracing system that helps detect and trace potential COVID-19 exposures. You register your business and the app can start monitoring your employees by asking screening questions. The process is done online, with each person using their own mobile device. If an employee or visitor reports a COVID-19 infection, you will be alerted of any possible exposures.

3- Common Usage

Avoid touching common devices like phones, pens, common desks, kitchen tools, etc. If you have to use them, make sure to sanitize your hands and the device before and after usage, to eliminate the possibility of contamination through surfaces. Protect yourself and others.

4- Customer Contacts

Don’t forget to stay in touch with your customers. Send your customers information about the new health and safety measures you have put in place. They will feel safer patronizing your business and will know you to be a socially responsible enterprise.
