Tips to lower your anxiety level during the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic:
1. Educate yourself Despite coronavirus being highly infectious, the mortality rate outside of China is 0.2% (compared to SARS which was about 10%.) Every year 60,000 people die of ordinary influenza and very few people outside of Wuhan province who have contracted coronavirus have died outside of the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions. Of the 45 people who’ve contracted coronavirus in Singapore, seven have already been discharged from hospital (with more headed home soon.) So yes, be careful, wash your hands, up your hygiene, and stay home if you’re feeling unwell but you don’t have to cancel your life.
2. Avoid fear-mongers Fear fuels fear. Just as you try to minimize exposure to viruses, you also need to minimize exposure to people who fuel stress.
3. Focus on what strengthens you, and stay as calm as possible
4. Double down on empowering rituals and practices Exercise. Eat well. Get sleep. Meditate. Journal. Get out in nature. Prioritize your schedule. Do more of whatever activities recenter, recharge and reset your headspace. 5. Get on with your life as it encourages others to get on with theirs. Take sensible precautions, and then get on with your life. Just as fear is contagious, so too is courage.
You are brave. You can do it. You have the courage.

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 have ordered hand disinfectants to hand out to employees and clients; we should be receiving them shortly as they are sold out basically anywhere and everywhere you go to. Although we care deeply about our environment, and used to clean with environmental friendly cleaning agents. we have had no option but to start using CDC recommended cleaning agents that are effective for disinfection and preventive measures. We have also ordered an industrial steam floor cleaner. The 3 vending machines that have just been installed are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before being filled with items.
As a provider of services to companies that manufacture or might want to manufacture in the United States, we are lucky in that our staff does not have the need to travel. That said we are also realistic: no matter how hard we have been working in implementing preventive measures, we cannot and do not ignore the fact that employees and/or clients might have been unknowingly had contact with people who travelled recently; they travel to and from work, which causes them to be close to people whom they both know and don't know. They are also in direct contact with members of their families, perhaps neighbours,, possibly with other people located in groceries (as an example), and might go to other small community gatherings. According to Health Authorities COVID-19 can spread out in a 15 feet radius if someone has the disease.
We have been cleaning more frequently., and have been stressing to our staff how now it is important more than ever to keep all areas cleaner, especially the Break Room (which is going to be renovated). Exacta Garment has always used disinfectants; even prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition to cleaning, we have always taken pest control very seriously, We have not had vermin issues for a long time. We concentrate all garbage (mostly edges of fabric that were cut and not used by people with disabilities) in one area, and we are working to move it further away from where it is located now.
