In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools were closed across 107 countries by March 18, 2020. How effective this was in controlling the outbreak of COVID-19 is unknown, but we've now reached a point where the re-opening of schools and other educational facilities can begin.
To ensure a safe return for students in September, schools and colleges must be proactive, follow necessary guidance from the government and introduce new protective measures. By doing so, the risk of a second COVID-19 outbreak will be significantly reduced.
Here, we explore protective measures and products that schools should implement in order to achieve a cleaner, safer environment for all.
Cleaning and hygiene
Aside from reminding children that regular hand washing, not touching their faces, and following social distancing is important, what can be introduced within schools to help prevent the spread of COVID-19? Find out here.
To limit the spread of COVID-19, ensuring sufficient hand washing facilities are available is crucial. Where a sink is not nearby, hand sanitiser should be provided to allow students to maintain proper hygiene. Hand sanitiser should be placed in every classroom, as well as canteens, changing areas, reception and gyms (if deemed safe to open). For maximum hygiene, automatic sanitising dispensers can be installed. This eliminates the need for students to touch anything, making the sanitising process more effective and efficient.
At SANIQUE, our Penguin Sanitiser Dispenser is perfect for use in schools and other learning facilities. It’s suitable for use with any liquid or gel sanitiser, can be floor fixed for security, is heavy duty, easily cleaned/maintained, and takes up to 5L of sanitiser for long lasting use. We've also developed our own SANIQUE sanitising dispenser. It's foot operated with no electrical mechanism, making it a great choice for schools.
We also stock 100ml, 250ml and 500ml bottles of 75% Alcohol Hand Sanitiser, as well as 5L bottles of 75% Alcohol Antibacterial Sanitising Gel for all your sanitising needs. Contact the team at SANIQUE and take advantage of our bulk discounts today.
