It’s the time of year where friends, families, and coworkers gather around to celebrate the season and say farewell to the past year. When hosting these types of events, you may find yourself concerned about keeping guests healthy and safe when celebrating. Any get-together comes with the risk of spreading the cold or flu, but plenty can be done to mitigate the risks. We’ve come up with a few tips to make your party safe without ruining the good time.
Starting with the lobby of the building, use a disinfectant to tackle all high-touch areas. This includes doorknobs and handles, elevator buttons, furniture, and light switches.
Serving food can be tricky when it comes to parties. Ask your guests not to double-dip when serving appetizers, and don’t share plates either. Keep a sanitizer ready so that hand hygiene is a priority for guests to use before digging in. It’s also a good idea to clearly advertise restrooms so guests can wash their hands quickly. Keeping food surface sanitizers, like Sani Spray, on hand is also a clever idea.
For restrooms, the risk of infection is lower than you might think. Before the party, clean and disinfect bathroom toilets and urinals. Helpful signs reminding guests to use soap and water for 20 seconds are also a good idea. In general, guests should also refrain from using their cell phones in restrooms.
The holidays are meant to be enjoyed and spent together celebrating. When facilities are clean, partygoers will notice the effort and feel safe enough to relax and enjoy themselves. Follow these tips, and your party will be a healthy hit.
