As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to dominate the media and the minds of people across the country, businesses are faced with new and changing security concerns. The fear and uncertainty that the pandemic brings has created novel security threats for business owners and customers alike. As an owner or operator who is responsible for a business, security during this time is vital for the safety of your employees, customers and clients.
Whether you operate a healthcare facility, retail store, business organization, restaurant or place of worship, security guards are valuable assets when circumstances require additional assistance to keep people and resources safe and secure. Many organizations are turning to security companies to help them maintain order, enforce social distancing and provide peace of mind.
Stay Ahead of COVID-19 Security Issues
Professional security guards can take precautionary steps to help you stay in front of potential security issues that can compromise your business and your reputation.

Preventative security measures go a long way in avoiding safety and security related issues. It is in your best interest, and that of your employees and customers, to take action now instead of waiting until a safety or security issue arises.

CORONAVIRUS SECURITY FOR RETAIL BUSINESSES
Retail businesses have faced unique challenges over recent months. From customers hoarding basic supplies such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer to disgruntled customers getting into viral altercations with store employees, businesses must take security more seriously than ever before. It is a trying time for all, and many retail establishments are bearing the brunt of people’s fear, uncertainty and anxiety.
Professional, uniformed retail security guards are an effective solution for mitigating situations like those described above. The presence of a guard in uniform will often deter people from creating a scene. If an event does occur, trained security officers are ready to monitor volatile situations and take action to safeguard your store and protect employees and customers. Trained security guards ensure that people remain calm and order is maintained.
COVID-19 SECURITY FOR HOSPITALS, EMERGENCY ROOMS & URGENT CARE FACILITIES
Panic may drive an unprecedented number of people to hospitals, emergency rooms and urgent care facilities, believing they must get tested for the Coronavirus. As cases rise in states across the country, many healthcare facilities are finding themselves at maximum capacity. Concerned family and friends want desperately to provide support to their loved ones, despite the fact that they are not allowed to visit or even be on the premises.
An upsurge in people coming into healthcare facilities has led to a disturbance in regular protocols, which can endanger patients as well as staff. Temporary security guards have proven to be vital partners for hospitals, emergency rooms and urgent care facilities. Professional security officers from American Alliance Security Agency are trained in crowd control measures and have the skills to maintain peace and order in the event of a volatile situation. With qualified security guards monitoring your healthcare facility, operators can feel confident that they are taking the proper precautions to assure the safety and security of medical staff and patients.
COVID-19 SECURITY FOR LONG TERM HEALTHCARE FACILITIES
It is an unfortunate reality that long term healthcare facilities have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 outbreak. The older adult population is at an increased risk of contracting the virus due to the presence of pre-existing conditions and residents living in close quarters, among other factors. Long term healthcare facilities have rapidly needed to create new health and safety protocols to ensure that their residents are protected from the virus.
One of the most effective methods for protecting residents is to screen all people who enter the facility. A professional, uniformed security guard can effectively monitor those entering the facility and enforce the necessary security protocols. Protocols may include:
Logging all who enter and exit the premises
Use of a thermal scanner to take the temperature of all visitors, staff and residents
Denying access to those who are not authorized at the facility or who are displaying signs of the virus
Enforcing social distancing protocols
