The impact of the COVID-19 crisis and strict hygiene measures are expected to remain in place for sometime. With stores expected to have a Hand Sanitising units to help maintain the lower levels of the virus whilst more retailers continue to open their doors.
“Social distancing (spaced-out queuing, perhaps limited numbers of customers in the store at one time, etc) and hygiene measures (such as offering hand sanitiser upon entry to the store, increased store cleaning and wiping down) will remain in place for quite some time because we are still not sure about ‘second waves’ of the virus,” Dr Grimmer said.
Sani-Stations are designed to be placed at any popular destinations to promote clean hands, hygiene and health. High-traffic areas like airport terminals, shopping centres and recreational centres should be fitted with hygiene stations to ensure visitors stay as healthy as possible.
But where can you place your Sani-Station within the retail and supermarkets space? Research shows that a within two to four hours, a virus placed on a doorknob was picked up by 40 to 60 percent of visitors within the facility. In addition to frequently disinfecting shopping carts, self-checkout counters and other high-touch surfaces within the retail space, it is essential to provide a Sani-Station to limit the spread of infection. Another hotspot is in areas where food is handled. When combined with proper hand washing, the Sani-Station units can be placed in these hotspots to eliminate germs.
