How are we keeping our secure care transport service clear from Coronavirus?
We all know the risk from Coronavirus isn’t going to go away in a hurry unless we all take it seriously. As a secure care transport service, we fully understand the risks and concerns people may have when using our service.
Even though we have robust infection control procedures in place, all our team are taking individual responsibility incredibly seriously. So this is what we are doing and what we recommend everyone does!
Wash your hands every time you get home
We all touch our faces, all the time and don’t even realise we’re doing it. So, as soon as you get anywhere, head for the bathroom to wash your hands. That includes getting to work, going to the supermarket, anywhere where there is a bathroom. Seize every opportunity to wash your hands where you can.
Stop high-fives, handshakes and hugs
It’s clear that even if you have no symptoms, social distancing is crucial to stop coronavirus spreading. This protects a large percentage of vulnerable people such as your elderly relatives and those with health complications. It isn’t always obvious when someone has a compromised immune system or other invisible underlying health concern.
Carry extra tissues, wet wipes and face wipes
Packing extra tissues, wet wipes and other paper products in your bag or car should become a habit. You can use them to wipe your hands if you can’t get to a sink and don’t have any anti-bacterial gel. You can also use them to wipe away germs or to act as a barrier, for example, to open a door.
We encourage all our staff to take these basic steps to ensure they are doing everything they can to keep our secure care transport service safe.
