Signage for Reopening After COVID-19


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies across the world have been forced to make changes to the way they do business.

From social distancing requirements to the need for personal protective equipment, it’s essential for companies to inform their employees and visitors of what’s expected of them.

And that’s where COVID-19 related signage comes into play.

While no two companies are the same, there are a variety of signs that every business should strongly consider hanging in their workplace. Here’s a five step checklist for deciding on what to do next.

  • Site survey: In short, survey your workspace to determine where to hang signs. For example, these should be displayed in easily accessible areas, such as on entry doors and in the lobby.
  • Quantity: For small offices, you may only require one or two signs. However, if you have a large building, you’ll need more signs to outfit it from top to bottom.
  • Types of signage: There are many different types of signs you can purchase from sign companies to share COVID-19 related information. For example: protect and prepare, common symptoms of COVID-19, facts, what you need, and what to do if you think you have COVID-19.
  • Banner stands: Signs are good, but you may want to take things to the next level by using a banner stand. These are typically bigger than signs, allowing them to more easily grab the attention of passerby’s.
  • Quality: This has nothing to do with the message and everything to do with the durability of the sign. A high quality sign will stand up to the test of time. A low quality sign, however, may begin to show early signs of wear and tear, thus making it more difficult to read.

If you require any type of COVID-19 signage, don’t wait another day to find it. It’s important that you meet all local, state, and federal requirements, while also doing whatever you can to keep your employees safe.
