COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It is a member of a larger family of viruses known as coronaviruses.
You can contract COVID-19 if infected droplets are transferred to your mouth, nose, or eyes. This is most likely to happen if someone with the virus coughs or sneezes near you. It can also be transmitted if you touch something that is contaminated and then rub your face or handle your food.
Most sources claim that 60%-70% of the population will contract the virus, so it is important that you remain vigilant and maintain high levels of hygiene. The Queensland Government has developed a 5-step action plan to help people keep ahead of the virus.
Here at AllAces we have developed a strict management protocol outlining how we should adapt our behaviours at our headquarters, and when attending jobs.
Our technicians all carry hand sanitiser and a full range of personal protective equipment. These include gloves, goggles, hazmat suits and a range of respirators. Our goal is to safeguard the health and peace of mind of our clients. We are more than happy to discuss the varying levels of protection our technicians might wear.
AllAces also offer a comprehensive range of coronavirus cleaning and decontamination services.
Our services span the scope of Precautionary Cleans to Deep Cleans. All our technicians follow Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Principles for COVID-19 as outlined for the Australian Government Department of Health.
If you have any questions, please contact us on 1800 00 1010. We are happy to discuss all your options for protecting your people and business.
