Dear Clients, Given the presence of COVID-19, we would like to update everyone on the steps the staff is taking to disinfect the common areas of the warehouse:
Staff is wiping down all door handles, light switches, countertops, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks with Clorox wipes and/or alcohol wipes a minimum of twice a day. If surfaces are dirty, they are being cleaned according to the CDC guidelines, using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
The warehouse is being sprayed with Lysol
We have ordered hand sanitizers which should be delivered this week. All outside contractors, deliverymen, and clients will be instructed to use them.
Options to disinfect include:
Diluting bleach. To make a bleach solution, mix:
5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water, or
4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
We follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Unexpired bleach is effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.
Alcohol solutions (with at least 70% alcohol).
As more information becomes available, we will notify you. If you have concerns or questions, please feel free to contact Esther Haddad directly.
We are reaching out both as a reassurance, and to inform you of the precautions Exacta Garment is taking to ensure the well-being of our employees and clients. Based on current guidance from the CDC, we want to assure you that the health and safety of our staff, clients, and community at-large is our utmost priority – now, and always.
Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we reiterate their sound advice: If you are not feeling well, or if you have been in contact with someone who is diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that you do not come to Exacta Garment - please stay home and take care.
We have posted flyers (both in English and in Spanish) from the CDC to help our employees learn about and understand COVID-19. After serious discussions about whether we would be invading their privacy, we have decided that it is in the company's best interest to require clients to follow the same hygiene advice that our staff is required to; such as washing their hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds with soap and hot water (sing ‘happy birthday’ to themselves twice to make sure they do this for 20 seconds). They should do this whenever their get home or into work, blow their nose, sneeze or cough, eat or handle food. Cover their coughs and sneezes, preferably with tissue or your sleeve if tissue is not available. If they can’t wash their hands straightaway, they should use hand sanitiser and then wash them at the next opportunity, and avoid touching their face..
They should also use tissues if they sneeze and make sure they dispose of them quickly; and stay at home if they are feeling unwell. To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. You can read more here: Preventing COVID-19 Spread in Communities.
We also encourage everyone to get information from the CDC; their FAQs page has important and helpful information.
