What Apex is Doing
To reduce the risk of exposure to our employees and community, the Town of Apex is in the process of implementing the following measures:
- Limiting the number of employees in town buildings whenever possible, through alternating shifts and using remote work to the fullest extent.
- Placing thermal readers at various town facilities.
- Holding meetings in person only when absolutely necessary.
- Restricting business travel and training, large conferences, or meetings as well as any business travel by airline. This date will be reevaluated frequently.
- Asking employees to wash hands upon entering their building each morning, and any time they enter a different town facility.
- Advising janitorial services to thoroughly wipe and sanitize door handles, stair rails, and light switches when cleaning town facilities.
- Preparing deep clean sanitation plans for any town facility where an exposure may have occurred.
- Continuing use of proper PPE for those who jobs may have a higher risk of exposure.
