Kraissl Company Policy and Top 5 Preventative Measures against Corona Virus Outbreak

To All our Valued Customers and Sales Representatives:

The Kraissl Company is very much "Open for Business" and will remain so throughout the duration of this current Corona Virus pandemic. We will continue producing our High Quality Products for the marketplace. Most other Heavy / Manufacturing industries also plan to remain open because without production, there simply is no money to pay for everything or anything.

Additionally, Grocery Stores remain open, Banks remain open, Pharmacies remain open, Gasoline Stations remain open, Hospitals remain open, Airlines remain open, Airports remain open, as do many other essential/ key Enterprises. So will we.

At the same time, it is strongly suggested that everyone of course is to take personal, common-sense precautions against both becoming infected themselves, and against spreading this disease.
Here at Kraissl Co., We have maintained plenty of "distance" and space" between workers and between Office desks, with no close quarters at all, for this we are blessed.

The general rule is keep approximately 9 feet away from your fellow workers. If you do become ill, we suggest that you please GET YOURSELF TESTED IMMEDIATELY, and advise your Supervisor of those results. This is very important to us all, in all our Organizations. Further, the following simple steps and precautions are to be taken by one and all.

Overall., it is finally suggested that We must ALL WORK TOGETHER to MINIMIZE the "Mass Hysteria" that has swept our Nation, stop "Hoarding" of essential products, and work together, as we should, to defeat this unfortunate circumstance.

THANK YOU one and all for your continued cooperation.
We value your excellent business, and look forward to continuing to providing your needs in our Product Lines.

The Top 5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus
March 13, 2020

As you all know, the novel coronavirus has landed in the United States, with cases as of writing in 46 states and Washington DC. According to the latest estimate from Johns Hopkins University, there are now more than 1,700 confirmed cases across the United States. There is understandably a plethora of uncertainty, misinformation, and fear spreading along with the virus, and Corvus Janitorial Systems recommends taking the time to do your own research, stay up to date, and most importantly, do takes steps to prevent the spread of the virus. Though you should be concerned and take this situation very seriously, now is not the time to panic. By taking preventative steps in our personal lives, our businesses, and our communities, we can help to slow the spread and long-term impact that coronavirus will have on our health, lives, and economy.

1. Use Good Judgement
Are you experiencing a fever, a cough, or shortness of breath? Is anyone in your social circle showing these symptoms? If so, now is the time to implement the age old “better safe than sorry” approach. If you are experiencing symptoms of novel coronavirus, stay home. Even if the symptoms are mild (which they are in approximately 80% of cases), you are still contagious and can spread the virus. Use your best judgement; if you have a fever, stay home and limit your interactions with other people. Work from home if possible if you have a cough. If you are exhibiting any symptoms, avoid the vulnerable population (the elderly, people with underlying health issues) entirely. Avoid traveling to areas with widespread infection if you are healthy and try not to travel at all if you are ill.

2. Wash Your Hands Often and Use Proper Hand Washing Techniques
One of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 – or any virus for that matter – is frequent hand washing using the proper technique. Hand sanitizer doesn’t cut it; traditional hand washing with soap and water is still the most effective way to kill germs. To properly wash your hands, use warm water, fully lather your hands with soap and scrub them until they are fully soapy and sudsy. A ten second rinse is not enough – you should spend at least 30 seconds washing your hands.
Tip: A good rule of thumb for hand washing – if you sing “happy birthday” while washing your hands and don’t get through it in its entirety, you have not washed long enough.

3. Catch Your Cough
This one is straightforward – if you have a cough, cover your mouth when you cough, especially in public spaces and around other people. Catch your cough with your elbow, hand, or a handkerchief. Doing so can prevent community spread from person-to-person contraction. COVID-19 has shown an ability to live outside of a host for a longer duration than standard influenza, therefore if you do cough on a surface, wipe it down immediately with disinfectant and sanitizer.

4. Elbows, Bums, and Tums – Avoid Common Touch Points
Avoid using your hands while interacting with common touch points such as door handles (and doors in general), railings on public transit, light switches, and sink handles if possible. Open doors using your elbow, rear-end, or stomach if they are push-to-open. If a door is pull-to-open, consider waiting on someone to open it from the other side, or cover your hand with your sleeve if necessary. If you do have to open a door with your hands, wash your hands after. In regard to hand washing, when you are finished you should turn off the sink with your elbow or a paper towel. Do not touch your face with your hands at all; use you should or upper arm to scratch an itch. Rather than shaking hands, use a fist or elbow bump when meeting or greeting someone.

5. Practice Social Distancing
The phrase “social distancing” has been thrown around a lot in recent weeks, and for good reason. Limiting social interactions, especially in public spaces and other high traffic areas, will highly increase your chances of staying healthy. Limit your social interactions to a close circle of people that you know are healthy, and even then, only for interactions that cannot be conducted in any other manner. Thankfully, social distancing does not mean complete social isolation; there are many alternatives to face-to-face interactions in the digital age. Call or video chat with your friends; conduct meetings through video conferences; start a group chat with your social circle.
