As the world still continues to battle the COVID-19 epidemic, various businesses across America are beginning the process of re-opening with major equipment additions to keep customers as well as employees safe.
In the past, restaurants were primary consumers in the sneeze guard market with the goal of protecting food from human germs and illness
With the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic virtually every business has been forced to ponder the prospect of using sneeze guards (or breath barriers). Retail stores, doctors offices,office buildings, and state and municipal buildings have all requested sneeze guards in order to adhere to health and safety guidelines as well as reopen with a positive customer response.
Sanitary masks and gloves will hopefully become a thing of the past after the pandemic is over, but sneeze guards will remain as an important resource in preventing the further spread of COVID-19 and potential future pandemics.
In order to ensure safety within businesses, it is important to remember a few of these details regarding sneeze guards:
- Measure the area of the prospective sneeze guard location in order to ensure that there is enough distance and height to protect both the employee and the customer
- Glass is recommended for all sneeze guards in because of its ability to be sanitized and durability.
- Keeping your sneeze guard clean and germ free is critical. Glass enables you to use sanitizers and disinfectants that would cause plexiglass to crack and become discolored.
