Coughing and sneezing is a natural human phenomenon. When someone sneezes, it’s not always just due to a cold or allergy. However, it’s good that we always keep ourselves away from the droplets released by a person’s coughing or sneezing. Thankfully, some people practice good sanitary habits and always use tissues or napkins. Others sneeze openly into the air, meaning they either aren’t really good at practicing hygienic habits or they simply are too slow to react at that moment. Whatever the case, you need to make sure that the droplets never come into contact with you.
The Outbreak of Novel Coronavirus COVID-19
With the outbreak of the highly contagious Novel coronavirus, it has become extremely important for us to take all the precautionary measures. The primary symptoms of coronavirus are fever and mild cough and it can easily spread if a person comes in contact with respiratory droplets produced by an infected person’s coughing or sneezing, which is why health agencies have recommended everyone to wear masks whenever we are out in public spaces. However, there is another tool that has proved to be very effective in making a person to person interaction safer and has helped in containing the spread of deadly coronavirus.
Sneeze guards are not something new and have been around for decades. Sneeze guards were invented by a Restaurateur and Inventor Johnny Garneau. The purpose was to keep food safe and infectious free. The sneeze guards were endorsed for their effectiveness in creating a healthy restaurant experience and the FDA established the mandatory presence of food guards in all 50 states.
Sneeze Guard Composition
Sneeze guards are primarily made of acrylic. Acrylic sheets have great impact strength. They also have excellent optical clarity which makes them the perfect resource to create sneeze guards and other protective barrier shields in the time of COVID-19. Another great thing about acrylic is that it’s flexible and weather-proof. Acrylic is also known for its antimicrobial properties and is easy to disinfect
Installing Sneeze Guards and Protective Sneeze Barriers at Workplaces:
It is very interesting to see how much this invention has evolved particularly in the last few COVID months. Sneeze guards have gained immense popularity and can be seen in places other than restaurants such as nail spas, salons, grocery stores, and even in the cabs. And the reason is pretty simple: staff members at workplaces are extremely vulnerable to exposure as they get in close proximity to hundreds of people daily. The best way to protect the staff is by installing acrylic sneeze guards at their stations. These transparent protective sneeze barriers act as safeguards and minimize the flow of respiratory droplets between customers and employees.
