Wurster Construction - COVID-19 Response Team
The entire Wurster Construction family would like to express our most sincere gratitude to all of the essential workers staffing the many healthcare facilities throughout our community, state and country. It is the compassion, bravery, and sacrifice of these individuals that will see us through these very trying times.

At Wurster Construction we are committed to serving our clients and partners in the healthcare community. During these difficult times many of our employees have been working side by side with healthcare providers to adapt their facilities for the care of COVID-19 patients and for the safety of other patients and hospital staff.  Click here to see some of the ways we are working together with healthcare providers to provide safe clinical environments.

Like many other businesses, our team has encountered significant changes in our daily activities. At Wurster Construction we value our clients that have entrusted us to deliver each one of their projects. We will continue to provide the best possible service even as we too practice social distancing for the safety of our neighbors, friends and families.

COVID-19 Safe Practices
We have been reminded many times to use hand sanitizer, disinfect surfaces and do not touch your face. Here are some additional precautions that can and should be taken to protect your home from possible exposure to the work environment.

  • If possible, change your shoes before leaving work. If you will be carrying your shoes home, place them in a sealed plastic bag and left outside the home if possible. If it is not possible to leave them outside the house it is recommended that you place them in a second (CLEAN) plastic bag before entering your house. Spray the soles, inside and tops of your shoes with Lysol or another brand of disinfectant.

  •  Set aside a space near the entrance of your house or in the garage for changing immediately upon arriving home. Put a clothes hamper or dedicated container lined with a garbage bag in this changing area. Clothes worn outside which may have come in contact with the covid-19 virus should be placed inside the garbage bag. Throw them directly in the wash (on the warmest setting for the fabric) if you can. Wash these clothes separate from your other laundry and disinfect the washing machine.

  •  Minimize the items carried with you; in your wallet, in your pockets, etc. Do not wear jewelry. Clean keys, cell phones and other items you’ve been carrying with disinfectant wipes.

  •   Avoid using cash and handling coins. Use a credit/debit card and clean your hands and the card after use-keep disinfectant wipes in your car to do so.

  • Door handles and light switches in the home should be disinfected daily. Remember the TV remote!!

  • Clean the frames of your glasses and sunglasses with disinfectant.

  • Spray or wipe down the boxes from Amazon and other delivery services before handling to open.

  • After the purchase of groceries, unload in your garage, wipe down sealed boxes, containers and cans with disinfectant, dispose of grocery bags in trash and immediately wash hands with disinfectant soap.

  • Shower immediately upon returning home from work. Keep a safe distance from your family and their living environment (if possible) until you have showered.

  • Take temperature at least twice a day; once in the morning before going to work and again when returning from work to monitor even a slight fever or the potential onset of a fever.

  • Don’t forget about your car. Use disinfecting wipes to clean non-porous surfaces in your car such as your interior and exterior door handles, window controls, seat belt latches, steering wheel, radio, dash, console and seats (if made from a non-porous material). If possible, cover your cloth seats with a non-porous seat cover so they can be disinfected as well. Manufactured seat covers are the preferred for safety when driving.

**Symptoms of coronavirus can appear two to 14 days after a person has been exposed to the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control. People with no symptoms may have the virus and spread it to others. *
