The growing concern around COVID-19 understandably has people feeling uneasy, especially as we face rapidly changing policies that affect our daily routines and plans. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak, we at AOR are taking every possible precaution to prevent the spread of any infectious diseases. We are committed to the health of our employees, our partners, and our customers and will be implementing enhanced safety measures to support and protect our communities.
The steps we are taking include:
- Employees are encouraged to clean desks, workspaces and nearby surfaces/handles, etc. frequently with sanitization supplies provided, as well as practice frequent and thorough personal hygiene practices.
- We are taking guidance from the CDC and local health authorities, and have added additional cleaning crews in the building for more frequent sanitation efforts.
- Social Distancing
- We have restricted all business-related air travel, domestic and international for the time being and encourage employees to avoid all unnecessary travel outside of work.
- There will be no guests/tours at AOR until further notice.
- All in-person meetings are canceled and our staff is encouraged to collaborate over the phone or via online platforms.
We will continue to monitor and navigate these unprecedented times with everyone’s safety in mind. We appreciate everyone’s support, cooperation, and understanding as we continue to adjust to the ever-changing landscape.
To help you and your loved ones stay healthy during these times, we wanted to share some tips you can implement into your day-to-day routine.
- Stay hydrated: drinking adequate amounts of water can help you digest your food better, help your eyes and mouth retain moisture and repel germs that can cause infections.
- Wash your hands frequently and after touching communal surfaces, coughing, sneezing or using tissues.
- Stay home if you are sick (so you do not spread the illness to other people).
- Use a tissue, or cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand. Turn away from other people.
- Use single-use tissues. Dispose of the tissue immediately.
- If working with children, have them play with hard surface toys that can be easily cleaned.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth (viruses can transfer from your hands and into the body).
- Do not share cups, glasses, dishes or cutlery.
- Support your immune system with regular physical activity & good nutrition. Supplement your healthy diet with immune-boosting supplements such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D, L-Lysine, Probiotics, Zinc and NAC.
