    Ten Suggestions for Coronavirus Prevention at Your Shop

    1) Have technicians and anyone else entering customer cars wear protective gloves anytime they are inside of a vehicle for any reason.

    2) Do not allow anyone to come to work who does not feel healthy or is living with someone who feels ill.

    3) Offer to pick up and deliver customer cars.

    4) Increase fresh air intake where possible.

    5) Hold essential shop meetings in the shop area with everyone spread out a bit.

    6) Reduce the frequency of non-essential shop meetings.

    7) Do not share food.

    8) Clean daily (or more often) all areas that are frequented by customers or employees.

    9) Stop shaking hands.

    10) Have all staff wash their hands when they arrive at work and anytime they return during the workday.
