Health Bulletin March 2, 2020
- AUPP management continues to monitor the situation with regard to the Covid-19 coronavirus and will follow any instructions issued by the government, and medical advice.
- Hand sanitizer dispensers are located next to the lifts on every floor. Please don’t carry them off no matter how special you consider your needs to be. Take the hands that need sanitizing to the dispenser rather than vice-versa.
- Our cleaning staff continue to wipe clean work surfaces and study surfaces with disinfectant daily. Lift buttons are also wiped twice a day.
- Remember – the washing of hands is the best single step for everyone to take to prevent the spread of disease. Use soap to remove dirt and then rinse your hands thoroughly under running water for 20 seconds (or … the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday). Rinsing thoroughly is key to washing away any viruses. Dry your hands well with a disposable towel, then use that towel to turn off the tap before throwing it away.
