Sneeze Guard by SAFCO: A Safer Alternative for In-Person Interactions

by | May 22, 2020

When the coronavirus (COVID-19) came stateside in early January 2020, it did not take medical specialists long to realize it was going to be more impactful than originally anticipated. Soon, companies had to pivot to keep up with social distancing and the rapidly changing healthcare guidelines. As a result, there has been an influx of new technologies like the portable freestanding sneeze guard by SAFCO, which provides a safer alternative for in-person interactions.

The Impact of COVID-19

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is mainly spread from person-to-person; most commonly through respiratory droplets from when a person coughs, sneezes, or even talks.

Not long after this discovery, people began social distancing six feet (or more) in public spaces. In addition, citizens took other preventative measures to avoid getting infected. Everyone began wearing face masks when in public – and people were only leaving their homes when it was absolutely necessary.

Other Preventative Measures Include:

  • Washing your hands with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds)
  • Washing your hands often
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick (even within your home)

The Portable Sneeze Guard

Because of the mounting guidelines and restrictions to remain safe, companies (like SAFCO) began exploring new avenues for their brands. The results were innovative products and tools to help reduce potentially hazardous interactions. Like the portable freestanding all-acrylic sneeze guard with document pass-through, which was designed to maintain safer interactions and reduce the possible passage of germs from person-to-person.

Sneeze Guard Features Include:

  • Transparent acrylic panels create a physical barrier between people while still allowing proper voice and visual interactions
  • Helps reduce exposure to airborne droplets and moisture produced by sneezing, coughing, and talking
  • Freestanding, portable design offers quick and easy relocation and repositioning
  • Convenient pass-through opening accommodates small exchanges of documents or money
  • Smooth, clean edges ensure a professional look and safer handling
  • And more

In addition, the SAFCO portable sneeze guard is made in the USA and does not require any tools for assembly – it comes with everything you need!
