For businesses in Wales, many of them have been closed for nearly three months. For many, this has felt like an eternity but with lockdown rules finally beginning to relax, businesses are looking forward to returning back to work and resuming operations as normal.
However, with everyone’s minds set on preventing further spread of the Coronavirus when returning to work, there is one virus that businesses should be aware of – Legionella.
But why should businesses be aware of the Legionella virus?
Legionella is a virus that is commonly found in stagnant water and can be deadly to those who already have underlying health conditions.
Unlike viruses that transfer from person to person, Legionella can be contracted by breathing in mist from water that contains the virus – leading to legionnaires disease which is deadly if not treated quickly.
And when returning to work, it is important to remember that water has been sat within your pipework, taps and showerheads for nearly three months.
So, what can you do to ensure that your staff and visitors are safe from Legionella?
As mentioned, Legionella likes to grow in stagnant water that is pipework, taps and showerheads. So, before your staff return to work or welcome customers, flush out all your taps and showerheads of any stagnant water that would have been sat in your pipework.
