12 Mar Fighting back the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is now classified as a pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization). The good news is that early action can slow down the spread of this virus. Although there are thousands of cases reported, this virus is containable by practising infection control measures. It is mainly spread from person to person through the droplets produced when an infected person speaks, coughs, or sneezes.
At Vintex, we take the health and well-being of our clients and caregivers very seriously. Infection control policies and procedures have been activated and are being implemented. Adequate supplies are being distributed (gloves, masks, disinfectants, etc). Proper hand-washing, coughing and or sneezing techniques are being reinforced. Caregivers with mild to severe flu-like symptoms will be relieved from duty and will not have one-on-one contact with our clients until cleared by a healthcare professional.
