After 3 months of working from home, unemployment levels at unprecedented levels, the economy taking a major hit and COVOID-19 killing so many people globally – the time has come to take steps to reopen.
Over the past few months many businesses throughout the United States have been forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the remainder of PA counties looking to move into the yellow phase on June 4th, there are some factors that need to be accounted for.
Now is the time to start preparing for your opening so that when the time comes you can get back on your feet as quickly as possible while maintaining any safety and health guidelines that may be imposed as a condition to operating your business.
While things may be ready to open up, this does not mean they are ready to operate as they would have 6 months ago. We are entering into a new normal where there will be crowd limits, safe distancing requirements, safely equipment requirements, cleaning regimen requirements and the list goes on.
The whole purpose of these new guidelines is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and that should be a primary component of your opening strategy. Take into account the services you offer and how those can be adapted to best succeed in this new environment. Considerations for a safe environment should include any safety equipment needed as well as the means to educate and guide your employees and customers to insure they are working in, or visiting a safe environment. This is where Paramount Signs can help.
With retail locations and offices that require close contact beginning to open up sneeze shields are a great way to protect your customers and employees alike. We provide standard or custom designed sneeze shields that fit your specific needs to provide the protection your employees and customers deserve.
For surfaces that are regularly touched and hard to keep clean, there are clear antimicrobial laminates available that we can install on surfaces such as desks or counter tops.
We can also help with signage. From temporary signage to let your customers know you are open to custom signs posted throughout your businesses providing information regarding safe distancing, hygiene guidance, safety gear notices such as mask requirements and floor graphics to help direct inside traffic. Exterior signage can include curbside pickup, directional signs, informational signs, opening informational signage, way finding signage and more.
The better you communicate how you are working to create a safe environment for your customers and employees, the higher the confidence level of your customer base will be that you are concerned about their safety which means they are more likely to visit your establishment. This is uncharted territory and there will be bumps in the road and new measures likely will come up, we are here to work with you to make sure you can adapt so your business thrives in the new normal!
If you are planning on reopening and would like to provide a safe environment for your employees and customers, give us a call for a free consultation.
We believe that getting you noticed (and keeping the community safe) is PARAMOUNT!
