Preventative Measures at Jack’s Tile and Carpet:
- Please follow all methods as stated above from the CDC website.
- We have purchased large bottles of alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Each installation van and shop at home van will be assigned a bottle. Please use hand sanitizer when washing hands with soap/water is not possible. After coming into contact with other people, please wash/sanitize hands prior to eating, touching face, etc.
- We have purchased cleaning/disinfecting wipes and each installation van and shop at home van will be assigned a container. Please use this daily to wipe down items touched by others to include steering wheels, tools, other installation materials, etc.
- In the showroom/warehouse, we will be spraying Lysol disinfecting spray daily onto all “community” touched surfaces to include, but not limited to, door nobs/handles, light switches, faucets, hot/cold control valves, toilet flushers, toilet seats, computer keyboards, calculators, and phones.
- Most importantly, be responsible for yourself. The CDC lists symptoms as “fever, cough, and shortness of breath.” If you are experiencing these symptoms, please call the office or Jack/Rob’s cell phone and remove yourself from work immediately. Do not remain in a customer’s home if you are experiencing symptoms. Symptoms can appear within 2-14 days of exposure.
The CDC states to call ahead to before visiting your doctor or health care provider to alert them that you have symptoms of COVID-19 or Coronavirus (so that you don’t infect others in the office). Prior to returning to work, a doctors note clearing you of COVID-19 will be required. Again, for more information, please visit CDC’s website.
