|We Made it 30 Days ! ! ! |
Expect Another 30 (Maybe 60) Days
It’s been 30 days it feels more like a year good job getting it done and let’s keep our efforts up for the next 30 maybe 60 days.
Asked To Limit Contact
I asked you to please limit your interactions the expectation was that you came to work and went home and I know a number of you did that.
Forgot To Ask If Needs Aren’t Met
What I forgot to ask is that were all your needs met. My assumption was getting a full-time paycheck would satisfy your needs I didn’t realize some people had needs beyond that, I’m sorry about that omission.
Respectfully Tell Those Near You
If you are needing to work to pay the rent or satisfy other needs. Realizing that a haircut and rent are different. A haircut is a want a rent payment is a need. Respectfully tell those near you that you are flying in and out of the country or visiting hotspots like Long Island so they can take extra precautions.
Asking To Drop Wants
I will continue to ask you to drop your wants like hanging out in the backyard with friends. We need to keep social distancing up for another 30 maybe 60 days. I know it’s difficult and every effort you make helps us continue to operate and satisfy those paychecks.
John Hopkins COVID
A good resource that’s not politicized and shares the facts.
NETFLIX “COVID Explained”
A reasonable documentary about how COVID-19 started.
YouTUBE “Simulating an Epidemic”
A good explanation of what the models look like with animation.
Mentioned in What They Think
Whoo Hoo, you were mentioned in an industry magazine for being the largest center in Alliance Franchise Brands.
Hello there! I thought I’d make a post where we can share good news with each other. Feel free to add a comment for all to read. Share a smile to help keep our spirits high while we’re moving through the stay at home order together.
We are doing good and that’s because of your efforts to keep 6 feet apart, staying home, washing your hands and reducing your trips in public.
Don’t tell the others but you are my favorite! Thanks for being part of the team!
Add your comments below. Your comments will be read by all who visit this post so, keep it PG-13 😉
There are no exceptions to social distancing rules. With the Passover and Easter holidays coming, I wanted to send a reminder. Do not gather with extended family. Do not gather for religious celebrations. Do not open up your social circle because of the holiday.
Instead, find a new way to connect and celebrate. Use your company access to meet.google.com to host a video gathering. Try zoom.com for another video meeting option.
Stay apart now so we can get together later.
I will be reducing the use of the Alerts System and also want to keep you informed. Please check your email daily. If you do not know your email address or password, please send me an email from your personal email. My email is email@example.com I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Yesterday we reported an individual had possible exposure to someone who tested positive to COVID-19.
Today we are reporting there was no close contact. This is an important distinction per the CDC guidelines.
Close contact is being less than 6 feet away from an infected person for a long time or being coughed on by an infected person. Neither of these occurred.
Here is the CDC definition.
3Close contact is defined as—
a) being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time; close contact can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case
– or –
b) having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on)
Details of the contact.
The individual was at the house week before the patient tested positive.
The individual was not closer than 10 feet, close enough to be seen waving, no direct contact.
The individual was in the same house for about an hour.
Follow the guidelines we have been sharing. This event is a good reminder to follow the guidelines. Stay 6 feet apart. Don’t crowd someone else’s space. Wear your N95 mask when working within 6 feet of someone else.
Review the CDC self-check tool to know the symptoms. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/testing.html
Your actions affect others. Refusal to follow the guidelines puts people at undue risk. Infection in just a few of the team members can shut down a whole department. Just one department closer would have a serious impact on the company.
The area was disinfected. The individual was sent home as a precaution. The individual will remain home until Thursday. On Thursday they will return to work on the 2nd shift as long as they remain symptom-free.
Please stay focused on distancing and avoiding close contact. If you need to work closely with someone, find another way or wear the mask you have.
Be well and Thank you.
Today we learned of an individual who was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
There is a new recommendation to wear a mask. We were able to give everyone an N95 Mask. I’m encouraging you to wear the mask when you go out in public. I would also like to encourage you to wear masks while at work whenever you will be within 10′ of other team members. e.g. working the front and back of the laminator; working the front and back of the inserter; working across a table from another, etc.
We are better together. We don’t want to see anyone suffer from COVID-19. Job one is keeping healthy and safe. Stay 6+ feet apart at work. Wash your hands. Wear your mask. Disinfect daily.
Please, please, please take this seriously. We want to prepare. We don’t want to panic. Chances are you have felt like one of these people . . .
Thank you for keeping the business running. By coming in each day and producing great work, we keep our customers loyal. By being flexible and working from home, we reduce the number of opportunities to transmit the virus keeping our team healthy. By finishing your work and going home reduces the duration of possible contact.
While at home, you are staying available to those in the building to help when called on. While not working in the building, you are writing wiki articles, making notes for preventative maintenance. Even when no one is watching, you are teaching others or learning. Thank you, keep it up!
We have enough N95 Masks for every team member to receive one mask.
We distributed masks to everyone in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
If you are working from home and need a mask, send your home address to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ship one to you.
Stay away from people – at least 6 feet.
Wash your hands.
Wear the mask in public.
DO NOT RELAX yet, we have to stay on top of this to keep each other safe.
