- Encourage hand sanitization before entry & exit.
- Encourage hand sanitization before & after every interaction, like before coming to the registration desk.
- Toilets should be cleaned periodically using 0.5 % sodium hypochlorite or any other disinfectant prescribed by the MoHFW.
- Alcohol-based hand-rub to be available at all entry and exit points.
- Washing stations and toilets to be foot operated with soap.
- Clearly label handwashing stations as not to use for dispensing drinking water.
- Multiple-user handwashing stations should allow a minimum 1-meter free space.
- Taps that limit the risk of cross-contamination through touch, for example elbow/forearm operated taps, elbow/foot pumps or time delay self-closing taps, to be prioritized.
- The design of handwashing stations should allow easy regular cleaning/ disinfecting of taps, basins, soap dispensers and frequently touched surfaces.
- If basins drain into emptying buckets/containers, those collection containers should be easily accessible. If no drainage is possible on site, soakaway pits to pour or pipe the wastewater into should be built using rocks/coarse gravel.
