Rock Box Bouldering COVID19 procedures
Part 1: Employee hygiene and cleaning procedures
-If an employee is sick or has felt sick with COVID19 symptoms in the past two weeks, they must either wait two weeks before returning to work or receive a negative result from a reliable coronavirus diagnostic test. Rock Box Bouldering will compensate employees for paying for a test if payment is required, but procurement is the responsibility of the employee
-On each shift, staff will sanitize common-touch surfaces including, but not limited to:
Door handles/push bars, keyboards, counters, sink knobs, bathroom stall latches, liquid chalk dispensers, telephones, computer mice, and hand sanitizer pumps/bottles
-Employees are required to wear a cloth mask with at least two layers of material during their shift. Rock Box Bouldering can provide two reusable, washable masks to employees, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the employee to always have a mask.
-Employees will monitor the liquid chalk dispensers for adequate levels of alcohol saturation, at least once per shift
-When stripping routes, hold will be quarantined for at least 72 hours to inactivate any virus present before being pressure washed.
