Helpful Tips for Balancing the Need to Return to Work with Staying Safe in San Antonio
As more and more of “normal” life returns to South Texas and we start to come out of the Stay Home Work Safe restrictions, you may be wondering how to shift from the work from home model and return to work safely in San Antonio. Here at WorkHub Elite Business Center, we care about helping make your business and your health a priority, so we’ve put together a quick little guide to break down all the ways you can grow your business while also keeping yourself safe and healthy.
Keep Your Office Surfaces Cleaned
This may seem like an obvious solution, but one of the most important things you can do is keep your office surfaces as clean as possible. Wipe down your desk, your keyboard,your door handles and anything else that you regularly touch or interact with. This will not only help keep you safer, but will also help to ensure that anyone who comes into your office space in the safest environment possible.
Limit Large Meetings
Obviously, we understand that work sometimes necessitates meeting with clients and customers as we return to work in San Antonio. We are, after all, a luxury office rental company that offers coworking and meeting rooms. That being said, there might be ways to return to work in your executive office suites without exposing yourself to hoards of people all at once. One of those is to limit the amount of large meetings as much as possible. This helps keep the overall contact to a minimum, and decreases the chances that someone in your group is ill. Try to book meetings with clients separately or with some members participating via Zoom (all of our meeting rooms accommodate virtual meetings).
Wash Your Hands Regularly
You’ve probably heard this over and over during the COVID-19 pandemic, but one of the most simple solutions to help protect your own health – and the health of those you contact – is to wash your hands routinely. The CDC suggests washing your hands multiple times per day and for at least 20 seconds each time, while using hot water and soap. It sound simplistic, but just following good hygiene and etiquette can help keep everyone safer and healthier as we return to work in San Antonio.
Stay Home If You Feel Sick
This is one of the biggest and most obvious ones, but as business owners in San Antonio, it might also be one of the hardest to adhere to. We Texans tend to have a tendency to treat most everything as a matter of will, and we push ourselves to “tough it out” and persevere, even at times when we shouldn’t. If you’re feeling ill, or having any flu-like symptoms, the absolute best course of action is to stay home. Not only will you feel better (being sick is miserable enough, but being sick AND working, that’s a real doozy), but you’ll help keep ensure you’re not spreading any illness to others. Plus, your immune system is already taxed to the limit, so coming to a San Antonio office space while you’re ill is basically just asking to get even sicker. Just don’t do it.
Overall, we all want to return to work in our comfortable offices and get our businesses back to full strength as quickly as possible, and as safely as possible. Doing your part by following these simple steps will not only let you focus on growing your business, but will also keep you and your family safe during these challenging and unusual times.
