It’s come to my attention through some connections that travel and stay within big hotel chains, nothing seems being getting done to inform employees about coronavirus or best practices regarding the need for heightened attention to through cleaning and hygiene practices, more attention to cleaning surfaces, and even down to more thoughtfulness, attentiveness to laundry and trash removal practices.
But, most seem silent. Well, Since I realize my bandwidth is narrow, I've started this thread to invite folks to share examples of companies being proactive in education and preparedness.Sorry Tim, I know you've got another thread going - February 23, 2020 at 7:30 pm - So far it's looking mainly at the medical aspect, and here I want to focus on the lack of communicating Best Practices to public and workers. Most fundamental precautions to take have been mentioned already in various comments threads. It's not like we haven't had plenty of time to think about the coming pandemic, which doesn't mean the end of world - but it's certainly going to change things and the less we do to slow it down the worse it's going to be, it's really that simple.
So why not remind everyone especially hotel, airline, airport (although I imagine they are on this better than others), food industries, sporting/convention center, etc., hell all of us. - of the scientific understanding,
not just the “facts” but a description people can process, which will directly impact future behavior if the message hits home. None of it requires higher education to grasp, simple respect for fundamental science and the basics is all it takes.
It’s the communal mass ignorance and disinterest, that feeds panics and help make things worse - yet we learn so slowly.
