Following the COVID-19 pandemic that is sweeping the world, please take a moment to read the below Award Leisure company policy regarding this. We are a young and healthy workforce and we have no doubts that by exercising awareness, good hygiene and putting the correct processes in place, our employees will prevent any spread of the virus.
In times like these the key is not to panic and to ensure the correct methods of prevention are followed. We have introduced hand sanitation units at all of our UK sites and included portable hand sanitation units with all of our expert engineers who travel around the UK maintaining and installing Award Leisure products.
Can the corona-virus be spread through pools and hot tubs?
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and chemical use of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html https://www.pwtag.org/novel-coronavirus-covid-19-latest-information-2/
We have introduced the following exercises across our franchise network and all nationwide stores:
- Clean your hands often with an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60-95 percent alcohol or wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Be especially aware, when handling cash or paperwork from customers that you sanitise your hands before and after.
- Respect individuals’ personal space by 2M (about 6’).
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Put your used tissue in a waste basket.
- If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hand.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, counter tops, and doorknobs with the cleaning agents that are usually used in these areas, following the directions on the label of the cleaning agent.
- Stay home when you are sick.
