The world is mighty scared of the ongoing threat of the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.

They are doing all they can to avoid more mortality rates.

To best protect yourself from contracting Coronavirus, here is what is recommended by WHO.

  1. Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic.
  2. Surfaces (e.g. desks and tables) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards) need to be wiped
    with disinfectant regularly.
  3. Why? Because contamination on surfaces touched by employees and customers is one of the main ways that COVID-19 spreads.
  4. Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, contractors and customers.
  5. Put sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the workplace. Make sure
    these dispensers are regularly refilled.

  6. Display posters promoting hand-washing.
  7. Combine this with other communication measures such as offering guidance from occupational health and safety officers, briefings at meetings and information on the intranet to promote hand-washing.
  8. Make sure that staff, contractors and customers have access to places where they can
    wash their hands with soap and water
  9. Why? Because washing kills the virus on your hands and prevents the spread of COVID-19
  10. Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace
  11. Display posters promoting respiratory hygiene. Combine this with other communication measures such as offering guidance from occupational health and safety officers, briefing at meetings and information on the intranet etc.
  12. Ensure that face masks1 and / or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those
    who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically
    disposing of them
  13. Why? Because good respiratory hygiene prevents the spread of COVID-19
  14. Advise employees and contractors to consult national travel advice before going on business trips.
  15. Brief your employees, contractors and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your
    community anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever (37.3 C or more) needs to stay at
    home. They should also stay at home (or work from home) if they have had to take simple
    medications, such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin, which may mask
    symptoms of infection
  16. Keep communicating and promoting the message that people need to stay at home even
    if they have just mild symptoms of COVID-19.
  17. Display posters with this message in your workplaces. Combine this with other
    communication channels commonly used in your organization or business.
  18. Your occupational health services, local public health authority or other partners may
    have developed campaign materials to promote this message
  19. Make clear to employees that they will be able to count this time off as sick leave.
