COVID-19 has turned many of our lives, businesses, and local economies upside down. My heart goes out to all those who are suffering as a result of this deadly virus.
Tops Consultants has always been committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees. In addition to our standard safety protocols, we are taking additional measures to keep our workers safe and do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19
- We have established a COVID-19 Response Team that meets weekly to share information and discuss best practices.
- We are working closely with our employees to follow social distancing recommendations and ensure job sites are sanitary.
- The majority of our office personnel are working remotely and using video conferencing tools to maintain the strength and productivity of our internal teams.
During this time of uncertainty, Tops Consultants will continue to follow the recommendations of local, state and country. With that said, if you need us, we are here. Call, email or schedule a video chat with any of our team members. We’re here to support our clients and community through this time of crisis.
Interim General Guidance for All Workers and Employers
For all workers, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to:
- Wear cloth face coverings, at a minimum, at all times when around coworkers or the general public. If a respirator, such as an N95 respirator or better, is needed for conducting work activities, then that respirator should be used, and the worker should use their cloth face covering when they are not using the respirator (such as during breaks or while commuting).
- Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are not immediately available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol as active ingredients and rub hands together until they are dry. Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes or coughing/sneezing into your elbow/upper sleeve.
- Avoid close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with people who are visibly sick and practice physical distancing with coworkers and the public.
- Stay home if sick.
- Recognize personal risk factors. Certain people, including older adults and those with underlying conditions such as heart or lung disease, chronic kidney disease requiring dialysis, liver disease, diabetes, immune deficiencies, or obesity, are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
