COVID-19 Safe Working Practices

In response to the coronavirusdisease(COVID-19) pandemic, Eight Days has developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

At Eight Days, we are committed to providing our employees and customers the best service under safe conditions at this time.

Given the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19, here are procedures that we understand are important.

  1. If any clients test positive or have been in contact with COVID-19, it is important for them to tell us so that employees and other clients are protected. 
  2. If any employees test positive or have been in contact with COVID-19, it is important for them to tell us so that clients and other employees are protected. 
  3. We recommend that if any clients are home while services are being performed, employees keep the 6 foot recommended distance.

Given the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19, here are procedures that we understand are important.

  1. As a personal assistant, organization and cleaning company, Eight Days uses products with hospital grade disinfectants so there are no changes that need to be made to our products to help with cleaning safety during this time. We pride ourselves on cleaning client homes at a high level and it’s even more important that we do this for them at this time.
  2. All employees have masks available if a client prefers one is worn.
  3. If employees would like to take extra precautions, they are welcome to wear a mask or use gloves in all homes.

For all workers, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to:

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

For all workers, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to:

  • Stay home if sick.

Recognize personal risk factors. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), certain people, including older adults and those with underlying conditions such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
