Avoiding The “Twindemic”

Help your customers keep their facilities safer

Last winter, health officials warned of a possible “twindemic” with surges of both flu and COVID-19 outbreaks at the same time. While Canada saw a low number of cold and flu cases last year due to increased masking, physical distancing and travel restrictions, experts warn this may lead to more cases this year when facilities reopen due to a decrease in exposure. Help your customers keep their employees protected and facility healthy by following these helpful tips:

Practice Proper Handwashing

One of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness is also one of the simplest – proper hand washing! Unfortunately, up to 95% of people wash their hands incorrectly, and often not at all. Help your customers remind their employees to follow proper hand hygiene with posters that show step-by-step instructions on how to wash or sanitize hands when hand washing isn’t possible. Check out our Healthy Workplace Communications Kit for free posters and guides to help keep your customers’ workplaces healthy, safe and productive!

Ramp Up Facility Cleaning and Disinfection

Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting on commonly touched surfaces helps reduce the spread of bacteria. Adding easy-to-use products to your assortment makes it easier for your customers to ramp up facility cleaning and disinfecting to reduce the spread of viruses like the flu and COVID-19. Disinfecting wipes are a great option as they’re ready-to-use and pre-diluted to the correct concentration – taking the guesswork out of surface disinfecting.
