The health experts and government leaders have spoken. You need to “mask up” to use most professional services. It’s for your safety and the safety of others during these pandemic times. No one wants to get the coronavirus. It could cause lingering side effects or even death. With that in mind, security guards have a new duty on the job: enforcing the wearing of masks.
The March Back to Normal
Will we get “back to normal?” Businesses that have been closed are opening again. Events are happening again. It seems like everyday the goal posts change, and we’re never quite sure what’s going on and what’s ahead, but one thing’s for sure: masks are everywhere. You can hardly go anywhere in public without encountering them– even at the beach!
Security guards are tasked with checking to make sure people are wearing their masks. And when they’re not? People can get quite vocal and even violent because they don’t want to be told to put on a mask. Security guards are the men and women who have to deal with people who don’t want to conform to rules.
Meanwhile, many places have had to change the way they do business. Instead of letting people inside their doors, business is transacted in the parking lot or in some outdoor public place! Thus, security guards who normally patrol indoors are now asked to stand guard outdoors, sometimes in makeshift situations.
Security guards also have to enforce social distancing regulations. They have to watch over safety and sanitation protocols, too.
It’s a very stressful time to be alive. Security guards are helping businesses of all sizes navigate these difficult, confusing times.
If and when you don’t have the staff to handle the enforcement of distancing or mask rules, and/or you need a guard to make sure your place doesn’t have too many people inside to warrant a fine or closure by the government, hire security guards to help out— in Western New York, you can call C.O.P.
