Desk shields as additional barrier to reduce the risk of infections
With no vaccine in the way yet, the society is forced to live with the COVID-19 danger over an extended period of time, therefore we need to put with the necessary infrastructure to reduce infections as a long term measure more so where people are seated closely to each other in closed spaces such as restaurants, schools and offices.
In WHO’s latest interim guidance, it advises to “Use physical barriers to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus such as glass or plastic window”.
The Center of Disease Control and prevention equally recommends to “Place a barrier e.g. sneeze guard between employees and customers”.
An essential part of planning to get staff back to work, means retrofitting the workplace, based on a common sense approach that adheres to governmental and global health guidelines, including physical distancing, adding barriers, cleaning and safety measures.
With that in mind, Victoria Furnitures has developed a range of Desk Shields. Desk Shields are easy to integrate into existing desks and provide the desired level of protection with different applications.
