Dan Harding, our Managing Director at Sychem, features in Tomorrow’s Cleaning and discusses dealing with the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) in gyms and leisure facilities.
With gyms and leisure centres opening their doors and a flurry of customers looking to catch up on lost exercise time, it will be crucial for business owners to focus on reducing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The reopening of these facilities will allow the transmission pathways of the virus to cause further disruption and risk to people across the country. This will be a complex and challenging problem that needs to be front of mind for businesses and employees.
Current guidelines and transmission data from the World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that the virus spreads between people through direct contact, indirect contact through contaminated surfaces or close contact through mouth and nose secretions, such as coughs or sneezing. People who are within one metre of an infected person are at risk from catching Coronavirus from infection droplets getting into the mouth, nose or eyes.
This is a worrying concern for many leisure facilities worldwide. To avoid contact with these droplets, it’s important to maintain social distancing, thoroughly and frequently clean hands, and cover the mouth when sneezing or coughing.
