It’s great that you’ve decided to host a Jam Spot. Now let us help you do so with confidence in these times of COVID.
The COVID crisis has made cleanliness practices a critical part of our business activities. Local governments have also responded by enacting strict regulations on occupancy, customer interactions, and service practices. So it’s no surprise that Jam users expect their Jam spots to meet a certain high level of cleanliness.
Business Jam Spots
Here’s business hosts can do to make your Jam Spot safe and productive.
- Ensure that your business is in compliance with your local health officials guidelines for operating under COVID restrictions.
- Post proper signage as required by your local health officials and remind Jam guests that they are subject to all of the conditions of a typical customer. This includes occupancy limits, mask wearing, and social distancing.
- Make sure indoor Jam Spots have proper ventilation. Consider increasing ventilation rates in confined areas.
- Give Jam guests access to handwashing with soap and water.
- Supplement hand cleanliness with hand sanitizer stations. Tissues and no-touch trashcans are also beneficial.
- Perform routine cleaning before and after Jam sessions.
- Use disinfecting wipes or approved disinfecting spray to clean tables, chairs, and other hard surfaces that guests may come in contact with.
- A table card or other signage that identifies the workspace as “clean” can be both helpful and reassuring for guests.
- Arrange you Jam Spot to have 6ft social distancing from other customers, guests and employees. Jam guests should also be able to remain 6ft from one another. This may be supplemented by the use of clear partitions.
