The colder months are here and besides the typical ebbs and flows of colds and flu, it's important to be prepared for the increase in cases of norovirus. The illness is on the rise and is expected to peak in late February, according to GOJO Industries, the maker of PURELL-branded products. This is a serious concern for convenience stores due to the high volume of customer traffic and the potential for contaminated food and surfaces.
To help combat the potential spread, it's vital to prioritize cleanliness and disinfection in c-stores. We have products that can help keep your cleaning process organized and ensure safe solutions are always used.
Our Quick Clean kits are perfect for prepping areas for disinfecting and our PureGreen24 is a powerful but safe, chemical-free solution that can kill a variety of viruses, including norovirus, in just 30 seconds and keeps surfaces germ-free for 24 hours.
Once your cleaning process is in place, use forecourt marketing to get the word out. Create a short ad on Encore® dispenser media to showcase your efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy.
It's also crucial for retailers to ensure employees practice proper hand hygiene and keep sick employees home. It’s scenarios like this that make Passport® Express Lane™ invaluable to store managers and the staff that must pick up the slack for sick teammates.
Remember, we can provide you with the tools and products you need to help keep your store, employees, and customers safer during norovirus season and all year round. Be proactive and take necessary precautions to protect your business and your customers.
