Building an Office Around Social Distancing

Studies have shown that social distancing causes depression, anxiety, and in extreme cases, social phobia, but to reduce the chances of illness being spread around, we all need to practice social distancing. It is highly recommended that people stay indoors, and a lot of companies are moving their workers online. If having your workers remain at home isn’t an option, or having them all move online unexpectedly is too much at the time, here are four tips that can help you build the perfect office for social distancing.

Send Emails and Packets About COVID-19

Yes, information about COVID-19 is everywhere, and unless you live under a rock, you’re bound to hear at least one thing about it. You should still remind your customers and employees about the virus, and give them a packet, email, or even push notifications about how to prevent the spread and remind them to avoid physical contact.

Create Larger Spaces Between Objects and People for Social Distancing

If you own a restaurant or a store, make more space between the tables and chairs. If it’s an office, try to create spaces between each table or desk. You can also put a shield around each desk.

Give Everyone Gloves and Masks

If you still can, require every employee to wear gloves and a mask while working. You can also give each person a small bottle of hand sanitizer.

Remind People to Avoid Touching Their Faces

The average person touches their face at least three times a day. Try to remind your employees to stop by sending them reminders. The more consistent you are, the better.
