A property manager recently asked us how to tactfully approach a unit owner who shows poor hygiene habits (like hacking, sneezing and spitting) in and around the pool or sauna area. 

One simple approach we suggested was to print and display some of the handy posters distributed by local health units to promote "cover your cough" and proper hand washing techniques.

In these days of heightened pandemic alert, this type of information can help promote greater health awareness, reduce the spread of germs in common areas, minimize worker absenteeism and help us all breathe easier.

Posters, fact sheets and other flu resources are available from local health units and government agencies.  Click the links below to access them.
