New technologies are being implemented in multiple industries to ensure safety against the COVID-19 pandemic. Commuting applications are creating detection programs that guarantee drivers are obeying social distancing protocols, meaning face masks are being worn, and hand sanitizer is regularly being used.
The announcement of the detection protocols follows after Uber confirmed both passengers & drivers would be required to wear face coverings while commuting from one location to another. These requirements apply to the United States of America, Canada, and Great Britain. Additional markets are slated to be supported by June 2020.
The Head of Safety Communications with Uber was questioned on the newly advised protocols for passengers & drivers. He noted that the Uber Company is beginning their 1st phase of recovery operations, with measures expected to be lifted as COVID-19 cases begin to deplete worldwide.
Health Experts Redesigning Public Bathrooms
Contractors are being provided new building codes, and design protocols as the COVID-19 pandemic continue to unfold worldwide. Infection control measures are required to ensure that workforces are protected from the virus, with any worksite found disobeying the protocols being penalized with a substantial fine. Nations like the United States and Canada have allowed construction workforces to remain active, causing these employees to risk their lives regularly. Hazard pay or additional benefits are being provided to these essential workers.
Construction workforces are being told by Health Experts to increase the number of Touch Sensors, Self-Cleaning Toilets, Electronic Doors, and Voice-Controlled Lights into all buildings moving forward. This will allow humans to enter new facilities without having ever to touch their surroundings. All construction sites will have to focus on hygiene instead of innovation. Limiting the exposure to COVID-19 and all future superbugs has become most famous for health experts.
New features to offices and entertainment facilities could include voice-commanded elevators. Workplaces would be divided by large-scale panels, ensuring all employees aren’t in contact with one another. Similar measures would be enforced within entertainment facilities, meaning that conventional experiences in bowling alleys or movie theatres will be considerably different. It should be noted that this will be a reality of life for roughly two years.
