When COVID-19 occurred in March and April, many people had no idea what to expect. They watched in awe at what was occurring in New York City and worried about what may happen in their own communities. Now, things have calmed down and seemed to level off a bit. Yet, a second wave is likely. As a result, infection rates could climb again. That’s why it is so important for companies looking to protect customers, clients, and employees to continue to maintain COVID Clear services.
Could a Second Wave Occur?
There is a significant amount of talk of a second wave occurring with COVID-19. This implies that a second high influx of infections may be likely. In previous pandemics, such as the 1918 Spanish flu, there was a period of time where the infection rates dropped significantly after an initial spike. Then, in some areas, those infection rates grew again. When looking at these on a chart, it is possible to see what looks like a second wave – a second instance of high infection rates.
Could this happen with COVID-19? In some areas of the U.S. and Europe, it is already beginning. People are going back to school and back to their daily lives. Some are now spending much more time indoors due to the weather. And, with COVID-19 still very much present, more people will likely pass this virus on to others at a faster rate. As infection rates climb, company owners have to take additional steps to protect themselves.
What Can You Do to Prep for a Second Wave?
There is no way to know if or how big a second wave could be. It is very difficult to understand if infection rates will become so high that they put many more people at risk. What we can do is to continue to apply science to the process. That is, we can continue to use what works to keep the spread of the virus at bay – proper cleaning and sanitizing.
If you currently have methods and policies in place, don’t let up. Instead, now may be the time to apply more stringent guidelines on sanitization in the office spaces and other areas. It will be a critical step in ensuring that your employees and customers have a safe and clean place to visit.
