Must-follow Covid Precautionary Measures for Coworking Occupants
The entire world is facing the adverse effects of COVID-19. While most of us have spent over two months in quarantine, we all are looking forward to the end of lockdown soon.
Lockdown 4.0 came with a little more relaxation, and some of us resumed work from the office. As more and more individuals get ready to go to the offices, it’s essential to take key measures to protect ourselves, our families, and the society at large.
InstaOffice has taken all necessary measures within it’s office spaces and continuously working with the Industry partners for adopting the necessary steps to fight the pandemic.
The leading Coworking aggregators have issued the precautionary advisory for all the providers and occupants in coworking space to ensure a safe environment for work and collaboration.
Here are some necessary guidelines and precautionary measures by our valuable Coworking aggregator partner Qdesq which we need to follow to be extra careful and responsible while working in a coworking space.
Ensure mask and disposable gloves before entering your office building.
While entering the building of your coworking space, ensure that you have a mask on. Wear disposable gloves, but do not forget to sanitize your hands even with the gloves on.
Carry a pocket sanitizer with you at all times.
Your office space management would ensure the availability of hand sanitizers and hand-wash. However, it’s a good idea to carry a pocket-size, alcohol-based rub so that you don’t have unclean hands for a longer duration.
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds every 2 hours.
The importance of clean hands is quite evident, especially during the pandemic. Hence, remember to wash your hands every two hours, for at least 20 seconds to ensure germ-free hands.
Keep at least 6-feet of distance from your coworkers.
It is imperative to keep a distance of 6-feet from your coworkers. Closer proximity makes one vulnerable to the virus, and the chances of spread increases.
Stay at home if you feel any symptoms or discomfort
If you feel any discomfort in breathing, fever, or cold/cough, take a day off from the office and get the test done if the symptoms don’t subside.
Work from home on alternate days if possible to avoid density
Occupiers should take the responsibility of working in shifts or being present in the office alternatively to ensure less density in the workspace. Management can assist the occupiers for the same.
Take the responsibility of cleaning your equipments on regular intervals
Coworking management is quite proactive when it comes to keeping the space clean and germ-free. However, we must take the responsibility of cleaning our devices such as laptops, phones, and desktops regularly.
Carry your water bottle, and rinse it once-twice daily.
Office space management will ensure disposable cutlery, plates, and glasses, but one should also carry their water bottle in case of emergency and to minimize waste. It would not only ensure mental peace, but it will also cut down environmental waste.
Focus on improving your immunity through exercising and healthy food intake
Be extra mindful of the foods you intake during the pandemic. You must focus on consuming foods that will increase your immunity. You can also pick up a few, easy to do exercises to keep your body and mind healthy.
To sum up
As we prepare ourselves to enter the workforce again, it is upon us to create a safer and healthy environment. As the unfortunate nature of the virus is, we should not become a threat to our fellow beings. These simple ways would keep us safe and curb the spread.
