Soon, many businesses in Manila will start gradually opening their doors to customers although we still have to exercise enhanced sanitation and physical distancing at all times until such time that the whole world’s population of 7.8 billion has been vaccinated, including all of us.
I am glad that people are excited to go back to work. Many who didn’t value their jobs before are now raring to go back and start enjoying their jobs again.
The situation is still very complex and rapidly changing. As we navigate through a covid-infested world, we will all experience a high degree of inconveniences and difficulties like subjecting ourselves to regular rapid tests before entering the workplace to make sure we are not Corona V carriers. We have to keep practicing physical distancing anywhere and everywhere, at all times.
We have to make adjustments in the workplace. Chairs and tables must be farther apart. Buying cooked food outside offices is tricky because of possible contamination from vendors or from food handling. Bringing your own baon is better although not as convenient. A footwear bath mat is necessary. Handwashing and alcohol must be done before entering the office. Face masks or in some instances, a face shield will also be necessary. Serving beverages and snacks is temporarily suspended to avoid any contamination.
How about toilets? We can sanitize them several times a day but it’s beyond human capacity to keep them 100% virus-free. I think the best way is to wear diapers.
