Whether you are a school administrator, college department head, gym owner, or warehouse operator, you likely need lockers that allow those using your facility to store their personal belongings.

We haven’t seen every budget for 2020, but we would hazard a guess that when this year first dawned, most businesses did not have “purchasing portable handwashing sinks” listed as a specific line item.
Due to complications surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, however, that may very well have changed. We need clean hands now more than ever.
We are all still grappling with how best to make sense of current COVID-19 projections. Newer models indicate that the virus could be here to stay.
Predictions based on recent studies include:
● In continued lockdown, COVID-19 infections will persist for at least two years.
● Infections, however, will rapidly rise (by an order of magnitude) if lockdown is lifted – peaking after two months – recurring yearly, similar to influenza.
● Repeated lockdowns and releases do not avoid an endemic infection, even following a White House release guideline of 14 days of declining cases, or even a stricter 28 days.

If there’s one thing the year 2020 has taught us, it’s that good hand hygiene is more important than ever. According to experts at the Cleveland Clinic, it’s one of the simplest and most effective ways to keep yourself and the people you love healthy.
Practicing good hand hygiene involves regular handwashing. Unless hands are visibly soiled, an alcohol-based hand rub is preferred over soap and water in most clinical situations due to evidence of better compliance compared to soap and water. Hand rubs are generally less irritating to hands and are effective in the absence of a sink…Hands should be washed with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when visibly soiled, before eating, and after using the restroom. (CDC)
Which is all very well unless you do not have ready access to clean water.
