By the grace of God, the Club is now being reopened. However, certain guidelines have to be strictly followed to reduce the risk of COVID-19. We have taken proper measures to make the Club safe and ensure that the risk is minimized.
The advent of the pandemic has mandated the need for constant disinfection especially in high touch public and domestic areas including restaurants, bars, office etc. Despite constant disinfection, regular touching can re-contaminate the sterilized areas quickly thus keeping the risk of infection high since conventional disinfectants, although effective act only for a short time period as once the disinfectant evaporates, the surface is subjected to microbial re-contamination with an infected touch.
Therefore, we have used COVIDCOAT, a proprietary disinfectant formulation that forms a long-lasting anti-microbial coating on surfaces. COVIDCOAT is a high-performance disinfectant coating that synergistically combines release killing, contact killing, magnetic attraction and Non-fouling nature which makes the coating a lethal weapon to kill microbes/viruses at all times, non-stop, 24×7. When sprayed to any surface antimicrobial activity remains effective for 90 days. Daily cleaning of COVIDCOAT-protected surfaces with cloth and water/detergent will not remove the protective layer. It is also safe for everyone, from newborns to adults. This has been subjected to ATP/SWAB testing, which is a globally used tool to measure the level of contamination by detecting the presence of Adenosine Tri Phosphate. It has been certified by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, which is a constituent board of the Quality Council of India.
We are also taking the following measures for your safety and it is in everyone’s best interest to respect these guidelines and follow them to the tee.
