MAD guide to a covid safe workplace

In america some workplaces are implementing M.A.D (Mask, Air, Distancing) rules at workplace. Indian employees should adapt them as well.

MASK - # 1


Wear your mask at all times while at work, even when you're alone
If you need to remove your mask, remove it by the straps
Encourage the people around you to wear a mask and thank them for doing so
Sneeze or cough into your shoulder or elbow, even when wearing a mask


Don't touch your face or mask
Don't leave your nose or mouth exposed or dangle your mask from your ear
Don't remove your mask to talk or place it under your chin or on your forehead
Don't share equipment or tools (eg, phones, utensils, sunglasses)

AIR - # 2


Work outside when possible. This allows physical distancing and maintains the greatest amount of fresh air around you
Open windows and doors to improve airflow*
Turn on fans to get more outside air. Freely moving air decreases the risk of breathing in virus particles through your nose
or mouth
Use a humidifier to maintain a humidity level between 40%–60%
Indoor humidity higher than 80%
can lead to mold and other types of harmful pathogens. Viral particles float in the air longer in spaces
with very low humidity. Prolonged exposure to low humidity can dry out your nose and weaken your immune system


Don't work directly under HVAC vents
Don't stay in a confined space without good air circulation



Stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart from others, inside AND outside
Take extra precautions if you live in a multi-occupant home or building
If you feel sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms, keep away from others, including in your home, if possible


Don't gather in breakrooms or other crowded places inside or outside
Don't go to work if you have a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19
Don't enter a room/space if you can't stay
6 feet (2 meters) apart from someone more

Pl. Stop spreading the fear in peoples mind. If You see Places In India , You will not find any CORTONA. COVID, It is normal Virus , nit more than Flu / Cough Cold. Set examples of Pakistan , Bangladesh , Bramha & China for fight with their DESI Formula. It is Not Observed in Muslim Dominated Area where the Mask, Social distancing is out of Consideration. Also Let me know How Many Beggars has died due to CORONA ? more  
It is a good basic protocol,we should be aware of surface presence in all items handled in general. more  
Everybody should follow these guidelines honestly and religiously to
control spread of corona. Only the people who lost their loved ones
know the pain inflicted by the deadly corona. more  
Thanks Shikha, That is the minimum we can do to do good to our society. more
