What to do if a sick COVID-19 is found in a building
Due to the aggravated epidemiological situation in Ukraine, strict rules must be followed to avoid further spread of the virus. Most often, coronavirus is transmitted through close contact with a sick person in confined spaces. Therefore, the correct procedures when detecting a disease in one of the employees, clients, visitors, it is necessary to quickly carry out a number of activities.
As in any other process, the first thing to do is to draw up a plan, which will include a sequence of actions for disinfecting premises and switching to remote work, and closing the building for quarantine.
Let’s talk about important points. Designate a separate room in the building to accommodate a person with COVID symptoms prior to the arrival of medics. Create a comfortable environment in this room: put a sofa or couch, disinfectants, water.
If you suspect a disease, thoroughly decontaminate the building. Particular attention should be paid to common areas, halls, elevators, kitchens, toilets. It is also worth processing door handles, switches. The virus does not live long outside a person, but in some cases and under favorable conditions it can be dangerous for a long time.
You also need to carry out unscheduled maintenance of the air conditioning and ventilation system and change filters. Disease-causing bacteria very quickly penetrate all premises of the property through air conditioning.
When one of the employees confirms the diagnosis of COVID-19, all staff should be sent to self-isolation for two weeks and, accordingly, remote work.
