Cleaning Response to COVID19 at DMI
Good Morning DMI Staff, Members, and Business Partners;
DMI is taking steps to ensure our facility is clean and safe by working with a professional cleaning company that comes regularly to clean the office and warehouse. While we have been taking these measures for years to ensure a clean workspace for our staff; we have increased the number of times and services we will be using to ensure our building is a safe place to work!
Staff may see the cleaning company at times since the need is in-demand we sometimes need to have them onsite at 9:30 am and then the cleaning company will return at 4 pm to run an Electrostatic spray service, which is a professional cleaning method that uses 360-degree disinfecting power to sanitize entire rooms and surfaces, including hard-to-reach places and objects.
For more information regarding the Electrostatic Spray Service - click here: https://ae0be299-9956-4a5b-b020-027a1e30ae46.usrfiles.com/ugd/ae0be2_80636c42eaab43738c80d509c283fcec.pdf
This is not a substituted for Hygiene etiquette, it is for additional safety and peace of mind.
Hygiene etiquette involves practices that prevent the spread of any illness and disease. A critical time to practice proper hygiene etiquette is when you are sick, especially when coughing or sneezing. Serious respiratory illnesses like influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), whooping cough, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) are spread by:
• Coughing or sneezing
• Unclean hands
• Touching your face after touching contaminated objects
• Touching objects after contaminating your hands
To help stop the spread of germs:
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
• Put your used tissue in a wastebasket.
• If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
• Remember to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing:
Wash with soap and water, or Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. If clean, running water is not accessible, as is common in many parts of the world, use soap and available water. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean hands.
Cough etiquette is especially important for infection control measures in healthcare settings, such as emergency departments, doctor’s offices, and clinics.
If a staff member feels like they are getting sick we ask you please let a supervisor or manager know and will be asked to leave to go home to rest. If a staff member feels like they may be sick prior to work we are asking they please stay home and call out sick. If a supervisor or manager sees someone appears ill or has any symptoms of COVID19 or the Flu they will be asked to go home to rest.
