We are aware that the safety of our clients and staff is of the utmost importance, so we wanted to make sure that everyone knows the precautions we are taking to keep everyone as safe as we possibly can. We are continuing with the CDC recommended disinfecting protocols, as well as having every staff member take their temperature each morning before coming to work. We now have an infrared thermometer that is being used to take the temperature of people in the building. All staff members are wearing cloth face masks and have gloves for use. As per Mayor Cooper’s guidelines for all businesses, we are asking everyone who enters the building to also wear a cloth face mask. We have masks available if anyone needs one. There are signs posted at every entrance reminding everyone as they enter the building. We are also asking clients to please continue with the social distancing measures, as well. It is possible to safely distance and still have a successful recording session.
We have replaced all cloth microphone pop filters with metal mesh ones that are easier to sanitize after each use. We also have ordered UV wands that will be used to disinfect the equipment and any other surfaces that need it. They should be here within a few weeks. We have hand sanitizer available for anyone who needs it, as well. Our staff is continually wiping down all surfaces with Clorox wipes and disinfectant.
We are no longer putting out fresh fruit and biscuits or cookies and chips/crackers. All snacks are individually packaged versions now. Same for water. We have removed the water coolers in each room and replaced them with bottled water.
We are continually wiping down all hard surfaces as they are used (so when you take a lunch break, we go in and clean the commonly touched surfaces while you are gone). In addition to all of the CDC protocols, we installed a special air cleaner called a “Germ Guardian” for each control room and live room that uses UV light to filter the air and kill all airborne viruses as well as dust, allergens, etc. And at the end of each session, we are doing a very thorough sanitizing of the entire studio and all surfaces.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
