This last week, Donlar Construction participated in the National Safety Stand-down, coordinated by the Associated General Contractors of America. Employees gathered in small groups (while staying a safe distance apart) to discuss the virus, particularly the related health and safety guidelines. This was a great opportunity to educate on the prevention of the virus, and we are proud to have been a part of the COVID-19 Safety Stand Down. We thought we’d share some of the content we covered here on our blog as well, in the interest of stopping the spread of the Coronavirus. We hope you find the information below valuable and can apply it in your own place of work or daily routine.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Symptoms for COVID-19 include fever/chills and shortness of breath, cough or sore throat.
How does COVID-19 spread?
COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing. It may also be spread when people touch something with the virus on it then touch their mouth or nose. Symptoms usually appear 7-14 days after exposure.
Stay Home When You Are Sick
It is important that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above that you notify your supervisor immediately. Workers should also stay at home of they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. If you notice that a fellow worker is experience these symptoms – report it! We all need to work together to help slow the spread.
