The viral disease COVID-19 has now officially been declared a “Global Pandemic” by the World Health Organization. Since there is currently no proven treatment for the disease and the virus spreads very quickly, officials at WHO have asked people to practice “Social Distancing” as a measure to contain the spread of the virus. Since offices and workplaces pose a greater threat of exposure to the virus, many organizations have issued a “Work From Home Policy” to ensure the safety of their employees.

However, several business sectors, particularly retailers and supermarkets, are in a difficult position. These business sectors cannot work without on-site employees. Meanwhile, the government has also requested that retailers and certain service sectors continue their operations so that the supply of life-essentials, such as groceries and medicine, is not disturbed. Quick and continuous access to life-essentials in this crisis will help to maintain the sense of calm in the public. This means that retailers must keep their stores open, while also taking all the preemptive measures to ensure the optimal health of their customers and workers, who are certainly more exposed to the virus.

Concerned government health departments that include FDA, CDC & OSHA have issued certain directives to operate retail food stores during the COVID-19 pandemic to safeguard workers and consumers. Here is a brief summary:

Work Practice and Engineering Controls

Place temperature scanning devices at entrances and screen every employee for fever as they arrive for the shift. You can also screen every customer entering the store and if anyone shows any symptoms, take their order and offer them delivery or you can also request them to send some other family member to do the shopping.

WHO recommends that everyone sanitize their hands regularly. Make sure you have placed enough hand-sanitizers at the entrance and request every customer to sanitize before they enter the store.

Maintaining physical distancing is the most important thing to do. Instruct your employees to maintain distance while dealing with customers. An effective way to minimize the chances of any physical contact is by marking the floor every 6 feet.

Installing plexiglass/acrylic sneeze guards at the counters is also a good solution to ensure that your cashiers are protected against respiratory droplets dispersed by people talking, coughing and sneezing.

Administrative Controls

In these difficult times, it’s important to closely listen to the concerns of your employees. Give paid leaves to staff members feeling unwell or showing any kind of symptoms.

Delivering the right information to your customers and staff is also a courteous and valuable service. Signage or banners can be used to communicate authentic information to the public.

Use disinfectant sprays on frequently touched surfaces. However, it’s important to note that disinfectant sprays contain sodium hypochlorite which can be harmful to human skin. So do not use disinfectant sprays on your employees or customers.

Do not let your store get crowded. Only allow a certain number of customers in the store and request new customers to please wait until some customers leave.  

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment is a set of protective gear that can help in minimizing exposure to the virus. PPE includes face shields, goggles and disposable gloves. After doctors and health workers, cashiers and clerks are extremely vulnerable to the virus as they have to interact with thousands of people every day. Store owners should also consider providing PPE equipment to their heroes.  

In these difficult times, store employees are looking at their bosses to keep them safe. As a store owner, it’s your responsibility to boost the confidence of your employees as they are working relentlessly and are doing a great service to the community in these difficult times.
