When stressed and unsure how to move forward, sometimes the act of making an important decision provides immediate ‘relief’ and a sense of accomplishment, and even confidence.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our economy. Even with loosened public safety restrictions, businesses that rely on in-person interaction are struggling to remain open and provide a clean environment for customers and employees.
Most people are aware that masks, social distancing, and handwashing are three fundamental proactive measures individuals and businesses can take to prevent infections and spread. But, for many business owners, these precautions are just a start. They want to do more to ensure their staff, and customers feel comfortable, but they struggle to decide what else they can do.
Each day, many businesses face nearly impossible questions: Am I doing enough? What else can I do to provide peace of mind to my staff and customers? How can I afford new measures while my business is so slow?
The Role That Indoor Air Quality Can Play
Experts now understand that the SARS-VoV-2 virus can spread through airborne transmission, with the FDA acknowledging the role that certain air purification technologies can play in capturing the airborne SARS-CoV-2 virus. When speaking with many of Celios’ customers, we have heard that air quality investment provides much more than simply cleaner air. It brings forth an enormous sense of emotional confidence that they are doing all they can to provide a cleaner environment for all who enter their business.
For most businesses, success starts and ends with engaged and appreciative employees and happy, loyal customers. Making decisions to keep their environment as clean as possible requires thoughtful analysis, but it often results in a true sense of relief.
In late December 2020, the government passed the second pandemic relief bill totaling $900 billion, which reopens the Paycheck Protection Program, providing funding to small businesses that continue to struggle during the pandemic, especially in the face of renewed lockdowns (PPP Round Two). Lawmakers followed scientists’ lead, authorizing billions of dollars to implement risk mitigation strategies among business owners.
In no uncertain terms, the program also recognizes the importance of clean air indoors. Small businesses that qualify for PPP Round Two funding will now be able to update existing HVAC systems or invest in ventilation systems and certain portable air purifiers to help employees and customers feel more comfortable when inside.
If you are looking to do more to provide your employees and customers with clean air and have questions about air purification, we’d be happy to connect with you.
