Commercial laundries were closed in many states due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, every state is now in some phase of reopening. For commercial laundries, that means you are already open or can set an opening date in all but a few states (and if you’re in a couple of states where laundries were deemed essential, you never had to close).
How can you protect your staff and clients while a global pandemic is still spreading? Here are a few important tips:
- Hand sanitizer stations – At entrances and exits as well as at convenient locations throughout your laundry facility, there should be stations for your workers and patrons to clean their hands regularly.
- PPE/Face covering requirements – Make sure that you require both staff and customers to wear masks. Masks are not just for personal protection but primarily help prevent spread when a person is asymptomatic and doesn’t yet know that they have COVID-19. If your state doesn’t make face coverings mandatory, you may want to do so for your facility anyway.
- Social distancing and occupancy limits – It is easier to remain six feet apart if you don’t overload the building. Limiting occupancy to far lower than the usual numbers is a must. Block machines that are not to be used so that employees do not stand right next to each other. Spread out waiting and folding areas as well.
