Business Reopening Support Plans


IRVINE, CA – May 13, 2020

As business leaders begin reopening efforts, we all need to continue to take the COVID-19 threat seriously, and take every precaution to help reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 to both customers and employees.

Per the CDC’s guidance, all businesses should enforce hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and employ the use of face masks and coverings by employees when near other employees and customers. Ensure adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene practices for both employees and customers including soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol (perhaps on every table, if supplies allow) and tissues.

As businesses reopen, they should enforce additional practices ensuring the safety and confidence of customers and employees. Maximizing hygiene requires adopting increased cleanliness practices such as using commercially laundered cleaning cloths, mops, linens and garments.

The Textile Rental Services Association’s (TRSA) members like Prudential Overall Supply employ best management practices to help businesses maintain cleanliness standards and inspire public confidence.

TRSA identified these practices as standards to help comply with reopening plans:

  • Hand sanitizer dispensers should be placed throughout business for guests and staff to use.
  • Reusable/washable face covers or disposable masks that meet CDC guidelines and disposable gloves should be worn by staff. Gloves should be changed out often throughout an employee’s shift.
  • Commercial cleaning solutions should be used on all hard surfaces throughout the day, including entryway door handles, kitchen area and bathrooms.
  • The use of uniforms in the workplace makes it easier for employers to help ensure their employees are provided with sanitized clothing.
  • For the restaurant industry it is recommended that staff should be given hygienically cleaned uniforms, such as chef coats, cook shirts, pants and aprons to wear throughout their shift and preferably left at the workplace in order to be professionally laundered to help reduce the risk of germs being transmitted outside of the workplace.
  • These recommendations can apply to other industries such as manufacturing, service, transportation and others.
