As you look towards a safe and secure reopening, here is entegra's comprehensive recovery guide. In collaboration with our Beyond Prime suppliers, the guide provides you with a framework of best practices that can help mitigate the exposure to COVID-19 for your employees and customers.

 

Preventive Actions to Protect Yourself and Others

Avoid contact with people who are sick, especially if they are coughing and sneezing

Frequently clean your hands using the correct handwashing technique using the WHO technique with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds) and dry hands thoroughly, preferably using a disposable paper towel. In addition (or where hand washing facilities are not available) sanitize hands using an alcohol-based hand rub. The use of gloves is NOT a substitute for correct hand hygiene/washing

 

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

 

Clean and sanitize frequently touched objects and surfaces

 

Alcohol based hand gel/rub should be made available in addition to soap/water/towels as a final step in hand hygiene/washing NOT as a replacement for handwashing

 

Protect the health of your staff and customers by restricting all non-essential business travel. This will help avoid the transmission of infection and reduce the possibility of employees or contractors from becoming stranded or quarantined as a result of business travel.

Recover and Grow: Reopening Guidance for Your Operation

A Letter from entegra’s CEO

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, entegra has been working to ensure our clients have the right tools and information to reduce the risk of virus transmission and provide the best for their customers. Our number one priority is and has always been to protect the health and wellbeing of the communities where we, our clients and our supplier partners do business.

At entegra, we constantly collaborate with our supplier partners to develop the most valuable and applicable information and offers for our clients. That legacy is more important now than ever. That is why we are prepared for recovery reinforcement as the industry emerges from this crisis and begins to reopen businesses across the continent. Our dynamic COVID-19 public webpages on entegraps.com, are being updated every day with new and helpful supply chain information, tips for foodservice operations and offers to help you manage this crisis and to move into recovery mode.

In collaboration with our Beyond Prime suppliers, we offer you this guide on best practices for reopening your business to the public with suggestions to make sure your employees and customers remain healthy and feel safe in your establishment.

At entegra Procurement Services, we are grateful for the opportunity to help you recover and grow your business.

Personal Protection and Cleaning

 

(last update: 5/27)

Health & Well-Being Tips During COVID – 19 and Beyond:

Re-opening Cleaning Guidance: 

Signage Resources: Part of keeping businesses functioning during these unprecedented times is to have helpful signage to help customers as they navigate through your business' social distancing guidelines. 

 

​​Protective Shields: Protective shields are important for customer and employee protection.

Personal Protection Equipment Sequence: Sequence for putting on and off PPE is essential for health safety. There are a variety of ways to safely put on and remove PPE without contaminating your clothing, skin, and mucous membranes. 

 

Hand Hygiene: Current contracted suppliers for hand hygiene include Ecolab and Hubert. Most hand sanitizer and wipes are in short supply at the moment, and vendors reserve the right to adjust pack sizes, substitute similar products and limit quantities.

Face Masks:

  • Hubert:  Blue 3-Ply Disposable Face Mask with Ear Loops

    • Mask covers nose and mouth to help limit germs from coughing or sneezing

    • Registered with FDA & CE

  • Hubert FN 95 Face Masks:  Keep employees safe and protected. Suitable for the protection of airborne respiratory infectious diseases by medical staff and other related staff. 

  • BBJ Linen Face Masks: As states and businesses begin to reopen, the CDC is recommending individuals wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. BBJ Linen has begun fabricating cloth face masks as part of our continued efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • Cloth Face Masks: Entegra has contracted our Beyond Prime vendor, Drapes4Show, to supply a cloth face mask option for non-healthcare environments.

  • CDC Provides Guidelines for Making Homemade Masks:  Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19

  • For further face mask information, please see the updated Face Mask protocols for your busines and recommendations from the CDC below.

  • If you are not a current customer of Hubert or Ed Don, please contact your entegra account support representative or entegra's CPS Call Center at 866-ENTEGRA (866 368 3472) or CallCenter.USA@clientPS.com to get connected through the entegra program.

PPE Update: Other categories of PPE are still available through normal ordering channels outside of the facemask category. Delays are limited to regional warehouse stocking issues and should be mitigated within two business days.

  • Gloves: Handgards and Food Handler are our contracted suppliers for gloves. Please order all gloves from your standard distributor – i.e. your local prime distribution house or Network Services.

Please noteIf you are not an existing Network customer, new customer requests are being prioritized for Healthcare and Senior Living environments. We are currently working to source product from additional suppliers for other segments.

What is COVID-19?

COVID 19 Symptoms infographic.jpgCoronavirus is a family of viruses known to cause a range of flu-like symptoms. Cases of coronavirus have been reported around the world.

Symptoms

The symptoms of COVID-19 typically seen are:

  • Coughing and/or shortness of breath

  • Fever/raised temperature

COVID-19 is a concern because it is new and therefore people don’t have any immunity. It is highly contagious and can cause serious illness including pneumonia.

Elderly people, those with pre-existing medical conditions, and people with compromised immune systems are most vulnerable to developing serious illness.

No specific treatment or vaccine against the virus currently exists
