Protecting / Prevention of the corona virus specifically, and all other viruses generally requires good hygiene and infection control practices. Some steps to be taken in prevention include:

  • Frequent and thorough hand washing. Ocl will be providing workers and work site visitors with a place to wash their hands and/or providing alcohol-based hand rubs. (Remember, sanitizer does not totally replace hand washing)
  • If you are sick, STAY HOME! Do not go in public, especially if you have a fever.
  • Practice respiratory etiquette which includes covering coughs and sneezes. (Not in your hands but in your elbow)
  • In the case of our office, if you are not feeling well, and your job duties will allow it, you can work from home. If you have a fever, STAY HOME.
