Avoiding The “Twindemic”

Last winter, health officials warned of a possible “twindemic” with surges of both flu and COVID-19 outbreaks at the same time. While Canada saw a low number of cold and flu cases last year due to increased masking, physical distancing and travel restrictions, experts warn this may lead to more cases this year when facilities reopen due to a decrease in exposure. Keep your employees protected and facility healthy by following these helpful tips:

Practice Proper Handwashing

One of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness is also one of the simplest – proper hand washing! Unfortunately, up to 95% of people wash their hands incorrectly, and often not at all. Remind employees and customers to follow proper hand hygiene with posters that show step-by-step instructions on how to wash or sanitize hands when hand washing isn’t possible. Check out our Healthy Workplace Communications Kit for free posters and guides to help keep your workplace healthy, safe and productive.

Ramp Up Facility Cleaning and Disinfection

Ramp up cleaning and disinfecting to help stop the spread of the flu and COVID-19 in your facility. Studies have shown that keeping disinfecting and sanitizing wipes readily available for use on high-contact surfaces can help improve facility health and safety. Wipes are a great option as they’re ready-to-use – making sanitizing and disinfecting quick and easy by eliminating the hassle of diluting cleaning chemicals.
