During an infectious disease outbreak, such as the current outbreak of COVID-19, small business owners must prepare for disruption in their business as well as prepare to protect their employees’ health and safety in the workplace.
According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person through air-based droplets from the nose or mouth of a COVID-19 positive person. It has not been detected in drinking water. Furthermore, the Water Quality Association (WQA) states the COVID-19 virus is susceptible in the environment and is neutralized by the UV sanitation, Ozone filtration, Chlorine, and/or Chloramine disinfectant treatment at your local water processing facility.
Neptune’s state-of-the-art 5-stage filtration systems are designed to improve the taste and quality of your drinking water, removing tastes, odors and contaminants that your drinking water may pick up as it travels through the local systems to your workplace.
Neptune is committed to keeping your customers, employees and guests healthy and hydrated in these challenging times so we have put together a list of easy to follow steps to help you clean and sanitize your Neptune Water Filter and ensure a healthy return to the workplace.
Keep a non-abrasive cleaning spray or wipes close to your Neptune water filter to sanitize the machine after each use.
Tape a 6-foot radius around the machine to ensure proper social distancing.
If your water filter is not installed near a sink, offer hand sanitizer so users can quickly disinfect their hands before and after dispensing their drinking water.
