We shut on Monday. I made the decision Sunday on the back of and article that stated that two ENT consultants had contracted CV-19 through normal consulting work.
The risk is that even in full PPE with wax removal you create aerosol particles, plus the inherent person to person transfer. It was obvious on Friday that a significant number of clients were’t taking the social distancing/cleanliness measures seriously either. That meant that I or my staff could become a vector and that means I can’t do my job or run the business in safety.
Since Tuesday we’ve been observing strict distancing rules, gloves and hygiene because my partner has Asthma. I’ve also been washing the contact points on the cars, exterior handles and steps to the front door with a ‘clinical liquid’ solution - like the one we use for our ultrasonic cleaning of earmoulds.
