COVID-19 Response: Best Practices for Riley County Businesses & Employers Open to the Public

COVID-19 Response: Best Practices for Riley County Businesses & Employers Open to the Public

Outside the store:

  • If there is crowding, limit the number of customers allowed to enter the store. Staff an employee at the front door and, as one (1) customer leaves, allow another customer in.
  • Post signs at the front door informing customers of occupancy limits.
  • Cue customers on the sidewalk in front of the store and post signs along the line urging customers to encourage a social distancing of six (6) feet.
  • Place carts and hand baskets at the front of the store and clean handles before bringing them into the store or providing them to a customer.
  • Maximize curbside pickup of walk-up customers and online orders.

Inside the store:

  • At point-of-sale registers, limit the lines and post signs at each register urging customers to maintain a social distancing of six (6) feet.
  • Post social distancing signs and floor markings in key areas throughout the store.
  • Place hand sanitizer available at every open register.
  • Routinely clean the store and have soap and water available in restrooms.
  • Keep meeting rooms and offices doors open and eliminate closed room meetings.

Action Items:

  • Make alcohol-based hand sanitizer available for customers and other visitors.
  • Encourage employees to stay home if they are sick. If possible, extend time off policy to make sure team members have every opportunity to seek medical attention, if needed.
  • Encourage visitors at increased risk of severe illness to stay at home or otherwise avoid facilities.
  • Suspend non-essential visits to facilities.
  • Observe and encourage social distancing measures.
  • Routinely clean stores and increase spot cleaning of high traffic areas and restrooms, using CDC approved disinfectants.
  • Limit large meetings and gatherings and hold meetings in open, well-ventilated, well-spaced areas. Use teleconferencing for meetings, when practical.
  • Constantly monitor and meet regularly to review the situations in facilities.

Employees:

Advise employees to use preventive measures similar to those that help prevent the spread of the flu, as recommended by the CDC:

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently.  Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is unavailable.
  • Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when the cough or sneeze, and then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when they are sick, except to receive medical care.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Make sure to get proper rest.
