Pandemics and epidemics have the potential to cause serious economic and health distress to entire countries – and schools are perhaps the most susceptible to disease outbreaks compared to any other institutions. This is largely because schools, and more so public schools, have a large population at any given time. Children are also known to be lax with their hygiene measures, making it difficult to control the spread of infectious diseases.
In the event that there is a serious outbreak with devastating health consequences such as the recent COVID-19 outbreak, entire institutions have been known to shutdown. This step is however not a lasting solution with many claiming that productivity is reduced when students have to learn virtually through online classes.
It is important that districts come up with sustainable measures to curb the spread of infectious whether on a macro or micro scale. Non-pharmaceutical intervention strategies must be put in place to first and foremost protect children’s and staff members’ health and ensure they are able to obtain daily education. These measures include improving sanitation measures in schools.
As infections periodically break out within school systems, personnel and staff members need to be equipped and trained on how to control and manage them swiftly. This step can only be successful if a working system was already in place.
With the increase of infectious diseases, it’s important for organizations to stay ahead of outbreaks by improving efficiency in
planning and accountability in operations.
Regular and consistent sanitation and disinfection is one way that schools can fight periodic bursts of infections. Critical to preventing large scale spread in any organization, is locating regularly used assets and keeping up with their maintenance and disinfection/sanitization.
