Protecting You Office From the Omicron Variant.
Consistency is Key. While disinfecting and sanitizing may not be necessary for your office or spaces beyond the important high touch zones, consistent and frequent cleaning is vital. Yes, the virus is airborne and most transmissible through the air, but keeping surfaces as clean as possible is still very important, particularly if you have most of your workforce back on the job.
All of your spaces need to be cleaned daily. Not only will it provide for the health and safety of your team, but it will give them peace of mind and trust in knowing you prioritize their safety. This will allow them to focus on their work, not their worries about getting sick. With winter upon us and flu season kicking in to high gear, frequent and consistent office cleaning is doubly important.
