The US Chamber of Commerce has compiled a Coronavirus toolkit with the CDC’s recommendations for businesses during this time. Here are the key points The CDC recommends to mitigate risks to protect you, your employees and your clients/customers.
Communicate with your clients/customers
Explain to your clients and customers the situation your business is in and keep them updated on your status. They will always appreciate you staying on top of making sure they are updated. Stay proactive about keeping them safe and relieve their stress by helping them with what they come to you for in the first place.
Remote working options
With the technology we have access to today, there are plenty of resources for you and your business to function during this time, working remotely and entirely from the safety and health of your own home with entirely virtual plans. Offer your employees a remote work plan using platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, etc. These easy-to-use tools provide efficient communication between employees, and you can also make them available to clients if needed.
The CDC has been providing us with health and safety tips. Wash your hands often, try not to touch your face, regularly disinfect surfaces and objects frequently used and touched, no contact with others. For further information, view more of the CDC’s health and safety tips.
The platforms previously mentioned are easily accessible for your clients when necessary. Limit meetings between your employees. Instead, use a virtual meeting platform like Zoom. This limits exposure and spreading of the virus.
