Help your Community Feel Safe After COVID
July 19, 2021
Like every other part of the world, the U.S. is anxiously waiting to see the end of the pandemic. The arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine marked a breakthrough, and many see this as a sure sign of things heading back to "normal." Many public restrictions have been lifted, and we have been given a chance to revisit and resume interests, hobbies, and public activities that we couldn't do amid the pandemic.
Now, with over 170 million people having received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the Washington Post
, the U.S. is well on its way to having a fully vaccinated population.
As the number of cases continues to trend downwards, many states have lifted the mask mandate for vaccinated individuals outdoors. In a sort of snowball effect, mask-wearing rules were relaxed in a growing number of public places and businesses nationally, and the response in most states has been polarizing at best.
For some, this was great news, but it didn't bring the relief that many people had expected after months of pandemic-induced anxiety. Many people are concerned that we may have reopened the country up hastily. Where we stand as a nation in how we are currently treating the pandemic has made us divided.
While the country remains split, one thing remains true beyond the pandemic.
We are more aware of germs present on the surfaces we touch and floating in the air we breathe and how they affect our lives. And with that, there'll always be a need for proper cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting, and that's where you come in.
With all the uncertainties that lie ahead, starting a Germinator franchise is a sound solution that your community needs to feel safe again. You have the potential to turn those feelings of unease into a sense of confidence and positivity during a time when we need it most.
We'll be going over how a Germinator franchise can help the community feel safe while addressing the concerns those in your community might be feeling ever since we've relaxed our protocols on COVID-19.
New Health Policies: What Are the Risks?
Soon after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
updated and lifted restrictions in its safety guidelines, business owners started relaxing theirs as well.
Most of the country's businesses across the board have relaxed their mask mandates, making them optional for vaccinated people. Each type of business has tailored its safety guidelines according to local restrictions, occupancy, and other factors. In most cases, all employees are still required to wear masks.
Still, the process has been an uphill battle for service workers. There are just too many things to consider, starting with the ever-present threat of harmful germs lurking around. People are learning how to properly protect themselves while scientists are still figuring out the emerging new COVID variants.
It's hard for workers to look after their peers and customers while trying to focus on their everyday tasks, and these concerns have now reached the very people who enter these businesses.
This is why a disinfecting franchise could come in handy: people will be happier and overall more productive if they can stop worrying about germs spreading. Unfortunately, this is also the reason why a relaxed mask mandate is such a red flag in many places.
The response to this change has been mixed. Many people have expressed shock at the sudden absence of face masks in crowded spaces, especially in states where the pandemic has consistently broken records of infections in the past.
Official statements have clarified that masks and social distance rules have not been loosened for unvaccinated individuals. But there is no viable way to verify a person's vaccination status.
Two major factors prompted a rocky transition after the lockdown was lifted.
Response From Service Workers and High-Risk Individuals
Safety concerns have extended to several members of the country's workforce, regardless of their vaccination status. With vaccinated and unvaccinated patrons alike being allowed to enter public establishments mask-free, there's little way to keep tabs on the area and many more avenues for viruses to slip in unnoticed.
Even after getting vaccinated, the length of protection is at least six months, which is why some people still worry about carrying the disease unknowingly from their workstations and spreading it to others. This risk would increase in public settings where employees work for several hours a day as clients come and go daily.
While retail employees and essential workers are more likely to be exposed to germs, it comes as no surprise that this concern is mirrored by the general population as well. After all, this is a problem that goes beyond COVID.
There's no way of knowing how many viruses are floating through the air, settling onto surfaces, or passing from one person to the next. So, without making a single change in their routine, a person could carry infectious germs from their local convenience store into their home.
Misinformation and Suspicion About the Vaccine
The U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey
shows that 282,000 Americans over 65 (one of the country's high-risk groups) don't plan on getting the vaccine due to misplaced views regarding the costs of the vaccine.
The same survey also reflects a degree of nervousness from people that are of different age groups, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds because of the concerns about potential side effects. As a result, many people would rather wait a bit longer until the vaccine is completely proven to be safe with no adverse side effects.
Another recurring argument also stems from the criticisms that the CDC and other organizations have faced in their handling of the pandemic, as shown in a survey from the RAND Corporation
After the CDC issued an update making face masks optional for vaccinated people indoors, the abrupt shift in public health regulations has made people question the agency further, especially with so many unvaccinated citizens.
Along with all the progress, there's still too much uncertainty, and that's only natural now that the effects of germs, viruses, and bacteria have made themselves known in such a crucial way.
That's why you can do your part as a potential franchise owner to minimize these risks significantly while encouraging the most advanced hygiene standards to make people feel safer overall.
How Does a Franchise Come Into Play?
With the proper marketing strategies in place, a Germinator franchise can make a huge impact for your local community, promoting causes that matter to the people and working in tandem with business owners for settings and events where their services might be of help.
Having a franchise involved in local affairs will also increase people's trust and turn its services into a staple for the community. Of course, this has a lot to do with whatever takes priority for the community, and right now, anything that helps create a positive transition into a post-pandemic world will be a huge step in the right direction.
Just looking at the number of disinfecting companies currently showcasing their services should tell you where people's priorities stand, and at the forefront is Germinator providing 360 degrees of advanced protection.
Germs, viruses, and bacteria are a constant threat that will remain long after COVID-19. Because harmful microbes are virtually everywhere, contagious diseases can spread through many channels and sidestep the most rigorous cleaning routines. The good thing is that business owners in all industries are now better prepared to counter those risks.
As business owners track all possible risk factors in small and large establishments, your role as a franchise owner can simplify the due diligence of local sanitizing and disinfecting practices. This way, you will also bring much-needed reassurance to those who are most exposed to germs, viruses, and bacteria daily.
With people finding their footing through the losses caused by the pandemic, you can offer the push needed to help everyone move forward while ensuring the best protection against the new generation of germs.
Make Your Community Part of the Germinator Safe Zone
It's hard to fight all the risks that come with running a business during these times, but you can make things easier for your local community and those who work and visit the businesses within it.
At the same time, you can partner with local businesses and be an ally to their cleaning and custodial staff and give them that peace of mind that Germinator lives up to. You can make your community a part of the Germinator Safe Zone.
Germinator provides 360 degrees of surface, air, and body protection, giving people the chance to feel protected in the spaces where they live, work, and play. Our franchise model offers "Do It Yourself" (DIY) and "Do It For Me" (DIFM) solutions.
You can empower your community to feel safe with our DIY sanitizing and disinfecting products or help them achieve spaces that have been tested, sanitized, disinfected, and shielded against germs with our patent-pending process. You could even offer both products and our sanitizing and disinfecting services — the choice is yours.
All of Germinator's solutions result from years of research to help people in all industries achieve the best hygiene standards. We want people to feel safe no matter where they are, and our products are created with this goal in mind.
Products range from hand sanitizers to body sprays as well as air filtration systems through our partnership with Aerus, offering products with ActivePure Technology. The ActivePure Technology pulls free oxygen and water molecules in the air through its patented honeycomb matrix. The technology creates powerful oxidizers known as ActivePure Molecules, which are then released back into the room where they seek and inactivate DNA and RNA viruses.
Meanwhile, our patent-pending sanitizing and disinfecting process helps keep surfaces fresh and hygienic in the long run by combining the disinfecting power of HOCl (hypochlorous acid) and our Shield solution. The Shield helps keep surfaces protected from the growth of mold, mildew, and odor-causing germs while protecting them from deterioration and discoloration.
The Germinator Safe Zone entails a hospital-grade level of disinfection to protect all the surfaces you touch, the air you breathe, and even your own body. Our hygiene products for the body are formulated with Zetrisil® to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses immediately on contact.

- Air units that provide long-lasting protection that's ideal for enclosed spaces like businesses, homes, hotels and even vehicles.

- Germinator's exclusive patent-pending process helps ensure the best antimicrobial protection while keeping your surfaces protected from deterioration and discoloration.

They can always go for both options to get the ultimate protection against harmful germs and all the concerns they bring about. In other words, business owners can get Germinator's surface treatment from you or one of your disinfection specialists.
At the same time, they can keep their businesses stocked with the best sanitizing and disinfecting products that employees can use whenever they want, like each time they clean after patrons leave or while upkeeping their workplace environment.
