Protect yourself and others
Some people would be very ill if they caught the coronavirus. Many supervisors in STIL and some of our employees are at risk. Therefore you need to do the following to reduce the risk:
- Wash your hands! Washing your hand with soap and water frequently is the best way to kill the virus. Wash them at least 20 seconds. You can use hand sanitizer when you don't have access to soap and water.
- Don't touch your face! The infection is spread through eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Sneeze and cough into your elbow.
You should also avoid travel and socializing with too many people at the same time.
To supervisors in STIL
Many of your personal assistants might become ill or not be able to work for other reasons. You will need to make sure you have enough staff before that happens. Many people are unemployed right now, so it is a good chance you can find someones. Also, you should tell your team that they might need to work more than usual for a period.
