Key Points

Updated: May 20, 2020

  • Be wary of companies, even those that are a part of the Amazon Associates program, who are promoting and selling vitamin products with misleading claims of mitigating, preventing, treating, diagnosing, or curing COVID-19 in people.

  • While the FDA has authorized 105 COVID-19 tests (92 molecular, 12 antibody, and 1 antigen test), it is important to know what you will do with the testing information if you decide to implement an employee testing program. For thoughts on different test that are currently available, please contact us!

  • As businesses are considering re-opening, it is still important to practice social distancing and use masks. On our COVID-19 Downloadable Resources page, we have Mask resources including “How to Properly Put On and Remove Masks”, an updated version of “Why Wear Masks” (for workforce and customers), and #ReturnToWork “A Day in the Life” posters and graphics with new languages, including Spanish, French, and Portuguese available for download. If you are having trouble downloading any graphics, please let us know.

 
Recommendations for
the Food Industry

Mask Safety While Eating.

TAG recommends that all employees throughout your facility wear masks for the protection of your workforce. However, understanding that it is nearly impossible to eat while wearing a mask, we recommend that businesses consider employing the following practices, and advise employees to:

  • Carefully remove mask to eat, avoiding touching of the surface as much as possible.

  • Do not place masks on any surface in a break room.

  • Instead, place masks in a pocket or a bag that can be discarded or laundered.

  • Wash hands after doffing, handling, and donning masks.

  • Label masks with employee name or initials to prevent potential mix-ups leading to employees using someone else's mask.

  • Consider disinfecting re-usable masks with a 70% alcohol or 0.5% hydrogen peroxide solution during the lunch break. (Alcohol will evaporate faster).
