COVID-19 Back-to-Work Essentials to Stock Up On for Summer and Fall On-Sale Now
With the provinces re-opening, the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) ending this month, and COVID-19 case numbers coming down, Canadians are going back to work in big numbers.
Until there’s a coronavirus vaccine, it doesn’t hurt to have at least a few key supplies on you. Here are all the COVID-19 essentials to stock up on for the next six months as we turn towards summertime.
Non-medical face masks, KN95 respirators, and reusable face shields are very valuable in the coronavirus fight. Early on in the pandemic, supplies were limited. Fortunately, things have improved. Through PrimeCables.ca, an online retailer, you can order your favourite face masks and have them delivered to your front door.
If you choose to wear a face mask, your eyes are still exposed. Unfortunately, this creates a weakness in your fight against infection. Pairing a face mask with safety goggles is what nurses, physicians, and other front-line workers have done, and it’s something we would strongly recommend for anyone who is working throughout this.
Medical-grade gloves are a great asset if you’re handling money, are working with common touch-points, or for some added protection. Though less necessary than face masks, gloves protect your hands and keep you aware of the COVID-19 threat. This sense of security and adoption of gloves by many healthcare professionals has meant everyday workers wanting medical-grade PPE like this as well.
Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer
COVID-19 hand sanitizer comes in many forms, including gels and liquids. Whatever you use, ensure it contains at least a 60% alcohol concentration. Purgel hand sanitizer has a 70% concentration of alcohol and is small enough to carry with you. Whatever you do, don’t go alcohol-free. Alcohol is the key ingredient to killing coronavirus and is a must to include.
What Do I Need for COVID-19 As a Business Owner?
If you’re a small business owner, you may want to consider supplies like the ones mentioned. Providing them free-of-charge to employees and/or clients can be extremely helpful at maintaining a safe work environment.
In addition to those stocking up on Dial Basics hand soap is a good investment. Soap is a great defence against COVID-19 and less expensive than hand sanitizer in some cases.
If you want to check temperatures and verify the health status of employees prior to any shift, a non-contact infrared thermometer can also be worth the expense. Using infrared detection, it’s a safe and very accurate way to identify fevers and employees who may be symptomatic infectious carriers of coronavirus.
