In addition to the health risks, this could lead to lost sales and negative-press that will cause current and future loss revenue. Here are some quick non-political thoughts.

Processes for safety, minimizing risk and increasing close rate…

  1. Safety measure for the organization:
    1. Use a greeter.
    2. Temperature Checks.
    3. Hand out masks.

  2. Employee check in procedures - Safety office / contracted nurse (not the manager)
    1. Check temperature
    2. Visual on no health symptoms
    3. Sign-off, if normal
    4. If not normal: work at home day with tasks assigned

  3. Office proximity: separate and/or require masks.

  4. Internal meetings: held with zooms, masks, or on the floor where separation in doable.
