Examples of workplace situations 😷

In one outbreak, all staff were masked at all times until they took them off during a short boardroom meeting. One person was presymptomatic (no symptoms yet but developed them later). Everyone in room was infected #SafeWorkStopsCovid (1/4)
On a number of occasions, we have recorded outbreaks in large office settings where staff wear masks when together but remove them when at their desks. When in the office and in the same room as colleagues, you should wear your mask at all times (2/4)
Canteen/break rooms continue to be common causes of outbreaks due to close contact and staff not wearing masks. It is important to stagger breaks to reduce occupancy of the canteen to avoid this (3/4)
In one workplace, one infected member of staff was not wearing a mask behind a Plexiglass screen. Though mask-wearing customers were more protected, all staff behind the screen were identified as close contacts due to the lack of mitigation measures (4/4)
