Exposure Response Plan

This plan is based on guidance for businesses from CDC & OSHA, & adapted for AVAC® operations. In the case that an AVAC® customer, employee, or visitor is suspected or confirmed to have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, that person will be asked to get tested & avoid AVAC® for 14 days or until it is determined that it is safe to return. If the person has been at AVAC® recently, AVAC® Management will execute a proportionate response depending on the date of potential exposure, when the person visited AVAC® & at what facilities, the relationship/contact of the person to the confirmed case, & other factors. The response will include some of the steps below, which may include shutting down certain areas of AVAC® for cleaning.

In the case that an AVAC® customer, employee, or visitor is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 infection, AVAC® will take the following action:
• Ensure the customer/employee stays at home, & away from AVAC®.
• If it has been less than 7 days since the sick customer/employee has been at AVAC®:
• The area(s) visited will be shutdown for 24 hours before cleaning to minimize exposure from respiratory droplets.
• During the 24 hours waiting period all available ventilation & exhaust systems will be used, if applicable.
Commence deep cleaning procedures including overnight disinfection mist
• Per CDC, if it has been 7 or more days since the sick customer/employee has entered AVAC®, only routing cleaning & disinfecting of high-touch surfaces is necessary

CDC Guidelines on Cleaning & Disinfection:
• Clean dirty surfaces with soap & water before disinfecting them.
• To disinfect surfaces, use products that meet EPA criteria for use against SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19), the virus that causes COVID-19, & are appropriate for the surface.
• Always wear gloves & gowns appropriate for the chemicals being used when you are cleaning & disinfecting.
• You may need to wear additional PPE depending on the setting & disinfectant product you are using. For each product you use, consult & follow the manufacturer's instructions for use.
• Investigate to determine other customers/employees who may have been exposed to the virus
• Employees/customers will be informed of their possible exposure, with confidentiality of all parties maintained.
