Our Office Is Seriously Working To Prevent Anyone Getting Sick
It's all over the news, it's almost like nobody can talk about anything else. And I get it, it's important to make sure that people are taking measures to keep themselves and others healthy. Heck, I'm one of the people that should be thinking about it a lot, since I would be considered Immune-Compromised. I have Multiple Sclerosis, and while I'm in good condition, that still means I need to be careful.
So we've gone full on for this one. Half the staff are working from home. We're not letting clients come to the studios, or really anybody but the mail carrier. We're doing interviews over the phone. Hand sanitizer, tissues, sanitizing wipes, cans of sanitizing sprays are everywhere.
Literally all over the building. There are a ton of them, and we're using them. Every day I wipe and spray down the studio. There are signs all over the building to remind people to wash their hands. And believe me, I'm doing it. Maybe we're paranoid, but.. we're a small staff. Maybe ten people. If one of us gets sick, it throws a huge monkey wrench into things.
And can you imagine if one or two of us had to quarantine ourselves for two weeks? That'd be crazy. There's already a plan in place, though. There's talk about possibly doing our shows remotely from home, stuff like that. Can you imagine, me broadcasting from home on the couch, and Washington the cat just won't stop meowing? That would be.... actually, hilarious. I mean, I don't want to get sick, obviously, and I don't want to get anyone sick so I'm not making light of the situation, but finding something to laugh about in all of it is the key.
Is your workplace taking Corona seriously? What are they doing, if anything, to prevent someone from getting sick? Do you think it's overkill, or is it justified?
