Creating a Covid-19 Secure Dining Experience

The risk of COVID-19 transmission significantly increases in indoor settings. Dining areas in restaurants are the prime example of such an indoor setting. One such outbreak occurred in a restaurant in Guangzhou, China on 24th January 2020. Close prolonged contact between numerous people in an enclosed space significantly affected the rate of virus cross infected.

 

Transmission risks at dining areas depend on the factors such as ventilation strategies, layout, occupancy levels etc. However, risk mitigation in a restaurant on an ongoing basis can be challenging due to the close social proximity of diners. Moreover, the strategies should also be considerate of the occupancy levels to maximise cash flow while also minimising the associated risks

Twin Dynamics offers services to the restaurants for safer and sustained reopening

Adjusting office layouts

Asses the aerosol spread pattern for the existing office layout. The assessment enables understanding the transmission risks associated with the existing office layout. Recommend adjustments to the layout and compliance with government guidelines.

Developing ventilation strategies

Asses the aerosol spread pattern for the existing ventilation strategies or HVAC settings. Understand transmission risks associated with the existing strategies. Explore and develop new ventilation strategies to minimise transmission risks on an ongoing basis.

Ventilation strategies to minimise aerosol spread

Developing occupancy policies

Understanding the impact of occupancy levels on the transmission risks. Schedule occupancy levels to minimise transmission risks on an ongoing basis. 

Developing safer work practices

Based on developed ventilation and occupancy strategies, develop healthy work practices on an ongoing basis. For example, nudging employees to wear face masks showing the visualisation of aerosol dispersion.

Developing targeted cleaning policies

Identifying spread patterns of heavy droplets and aerosols for targeted surface and zonal cleanings.
