Cleaning Windsor Ford

With so many visitors at our dealership on a day to day basis whether it be for service, taking test drives or getting parts we continue to ensure the highest standards and proactively work to create a clean environment.

Our dealership facilities are disinfected and cleaned during the day but receive a full clean inside every night. In response to the Coronavirus outbreak in Alberta we’ve taken more measures to expand our frequency on sanitizing our dealership.

We have recently added multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout our dealership to provide a disinfectant for your hands. Combined with the proper dispensers in our lavatories we’ve also started disinfecting areas in our dealership like our community table and kids area.

What can you do to protect yourself when visiting Windsor Ford?

As you’ve probably heard the Coronavirus has symptoms similar to the flu with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever and difficulty breathing (severe cases).

Similar to a common flu it is spread through things like shaking hands, coughs, sneezes and not washing your hands before touching your nose and eyes.

Your best bet to prevent it is

  • Clean hands frequently with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water
  • Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or flexed elbow
  • Avoid close contact (1 metre or 3 feet) with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms

We encourage all our guests and staff to engage in these preventative measures. For full information please visit Health Canada.
