Sheet Index Week 22 Ending 29/05/20 =33

There seems to be some light coming from the end of the tunnel. We are seeing an easing of the restrictions an people are on the move.

Assuming we have no major outbreaks of the virus we should go into level to of the easing on 12/06/2020. This means people will be able to travel and stay in short term accommodation. The weekend of the 12/13/14 of June should be fairly busy. We then expect the market to be busy right until the end of the school holidays the 12/07/20

The Mid year school holidays are from Friday 26/06/20 to Sunday 12/07/20. Assuming the level 2 easing is in place this presents us with an ideal opportunity to entice Brisbane people to come to the Gold Coast to spend a few days.

For urgent requirements we have a 24 hour pick up facility at our Molendinar depot. This means you can submit an order and you can pick it up at a time that suits you.

Corona Virus

There is a lot on information regarding Corona Virus on the Federal and State Health Department websites:

https://www.health.qld.gov.au/news-events/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus

https://www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov

The accommodation industry is in the front line of potential exposure the the Corona Virus through direct contact with potentially infected people and through direct contact with materials and surfaces (ie linen and room surfaces) that may be infected.

There is no evidence at this stage as to how long the virus can survive outside the host (human body).

While the risk is low of contracting the virus there remains a risk. Therefore we need to have mitigation procedures in place.

Corona Virus Mitigation for Cleaners and Laundry Workers

The following information is based on material on the various Health Department websites. If there is further updates we will post as it become available.

Based on the Health department sites the best method of risk mitigation is good hand hygiene. Therefore after handling linen:

Do not touch your face

Wash your hands with soap and water or alcohol based sanitiser

If you think linen is contaminated were gloves and possibly a face mask.
