Give staff and employees the opportunity to interact, outdoors in fresh air and look to the future. Managing the novel Corona Covid 19 virus situation in a positive way.
Keeping staff and employees, healthy, active and full of vitality is key to generating a team of people working together safely through times of uncertainty.
Outdoor team building in the fresh air is one of the best ways to have staff working cooperatively towards common goals.
When human interaction necessitates getting the job done, we cannot stop and avoid everything.
Whilst government departments are advocating ‘social distancing’.
Thrill team events director Konrad Lippmann states, “human interactions when completed in a safe and hygienic manner, following protocols recommended by the World Health Organisation WHO. Can manage our contact, behaviours and hygiene”.
“Recognising that even before people are ill. That we need to take measures to stop the transmission of respiratory viruses through human contact. From the novel Corona 19 to Influenza virus, we can take actions to minimise their spread. But we may not be able to avoid the issues surrounding, lack of knowledge and mis-information”.
“WHO recommends that the interim name of the disease causing the current outbreak should be “2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease” (where ‘n’ is for novel and ‘CoV’ is for corona virus). This name complies with the WHO Best Practices for Naming of New Human Infectious Diseases”.
Recommendations and Advice for Teams Working as the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) situation unfolds in Australia
During previous outbreaks due to other corona virus (Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Human-to-human transmission occurred through droplets, contact and fomites ***, suggesting that the transmission mode of the 2019-nCoV can be similar.
*** A fomes (pronounced /ˈfoʊmiːz/) or fomite (/ˈfoʊmaɪt/) is any inanimate object that, when contaminated with or exposed to infectious agents (such as pathogenic bacteria, viruses or fungi), can transfer disease to a new host.
The basic principles to reduce the general risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections for teams of staff include the following
• Avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
• Frequent hand-washing, especially after direct contact with ill people or their environments.
• Avoiding unprotected contact with farm or wild animals.
• People with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice
- Cough etiquette.
- Maintain appropriate distance. 1-2m between people
- Cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing
- Wash hands. 1 minute of mechanical thorough washing with soap
• Within healthcare facilities; Enhance standard infection prevention and control practices in hospitals, especially in emergency departments.
• WHO does not recommend any specific health measures for travellers.
– In case of symptoms suggestive of respiratory illness either during or after travel.
– Travellers are encouraged to seek medical attention and share their travel history with their healthcare provider.
