BUSINESS SOCIAL DISTANCE IS A STRATEGY

My agency provides trained Social Distance Coordinators (SDC) along with programs and education. Business related Social Distancing is a term that will be around in various forms for some time. In order to be compliant and operate safely during this time, a procedural plan is required.

As we currently shop, not surprisingly, many businesses do not have a consistent policy in place. We see a variety of improvised programs oftentimes, requiring a re-positioned untrained cashier or a stock person, in a role of enforcing Covid-19 regulations. Understandably, policy enforcement is not a role for everyone.

Jason Brewer, a spokesman at the Retail Industry Leaders Association, said it’s not a retail employee’s role to enforce a local law or an executive order on face coverings or any other protocol. 

Scott Nash, CEO of MOM’S Organic Market, which operates 19 stores in the Mid-Atlantic region, said he’s had to deal with some employees feeling overly empowered and hostile toward employees. He acknowledges that training for his 1,500 employees has been “on the fly” and that he has not had the time to roll out a training module.

Our SDC staff, is trained and certified with a curriculum that combines the objectives of the CDC, OSHA, and local Government rules & regulations. SDC staff will monitor social distancing regulations, professionally and respectively while conforming with the New York City and federal government regulatory agencies. 

An SDC staff member will provide a number of services including handing out masks (if needed), take temperatures of employees (if an employee is sick, we don’t want them to infect others), while overseeing company procedural and policy implementations.  Social distance preparedness sends a clear message that your organization has a professional plan to protect staff and your customers. 

        

Each program will provide consistency of service, detailed structure, staffing replacement value, updates and also a security aspect if required.

The following programs are available for reserving a Coordinator at this time.

Option A

Education: Reducing the spread

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

  • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others

  • You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.

  • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.

  • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

  • The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.

  • Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.

  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
