Custom Made and Branded Interior Cough Guards
What are cough guards?
A cough guard is a transparent screen made of acrylic or glass; you may also hear these referred to as ‘sneeze guards.’ Originally cough guards were designed for use in cafes and restaurants. For example, cough guards are often used to create a barrier between food and customers at a counter. The idea is that the food is protected from micro droplets when people cough or sneeze. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are starting to see cough guards introduced in many public places and workplaces.
Why are cough guards useful?
When a person with coronavirus exhales or coughs, they release infected droplets into the air. These droplets land on nearby objects and surfaces. People who touch these surfaces and then touch their face are likely to catch COVID-19. It’s also possible to catch COVID-19 by breathing in the infected droplets in the air. Positioning cough guards in offices or shops helps to reduce the risk of infection. The screens create a barrier between people and protect them from infected air droplets.
According to The World Health Organization, ‘ When grocery shopping, keep at least a 1 metre distance from others and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose. If possible, sanitize the handles of the cart or baskets before shopping.’
Slowing down the spread of the coronavirus is important to protect our citizens health and prevent a strain on our healthcare services.
Which businesses can benefit from using cough guards?
Due to the coronavirus, cough guards are now gradually being introduced in offices and various retail stores. You may have already noticed cough guards at the check out when visiting your local supermarket. According to Reuters,‘ Kroger Co, Walmart Inc, and other grocery sellers are installing plexiglass partitions at checkout counters to protect cashiers.’
Restaurants across the USA hope to reopen their doors as the pandemic slows down. However, CNBC reported that, ‘ 68% percent of Americans say they would feel uncomfortable eating at a restaurant.’ In response to people’s health concerns, restaurants are well advised to use cough guards between tables when reopening. USA restaurant ‘Chick-fil-A’ is currently preparing to re-open by adding cough guards and hand sanitizers. Experts believe that the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the way that we dine, meet and socialize for a long while.
All types of businesses can benefit from using cough guards to protect their staff and customers from COVID-19.
Corporate response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be scrutinized. Brands who are seen to be mistreating employees, or failing to take the proper health and safety precautions, risk damaging their reputation. To ensure that you are correctly and preparing your business, it’s useful to take a look at the ‘Getting Workplace Ready’ guide, written by The WHO.
