An updated business health code with new health regulations to habituate healthy practices that help us be prepared for future pandemics and other health concerns in such way that business are not affected economically due to the lack of preparedness and still be able to provide an interrupted service to costumers.

What is the need are you focusing on?

The business environment had to adapt new health practices that fit with the criteria of COVID-19. Coughing is one of the symptoms and main way the virus spreads, and many businesses had little to no implemented structural plan if such case where to ever happen. But COVID-19 is not the only disease that spreads through coughing, many common diseases like the common cold and influenza spread this way as well, leading me to ask myself: 

Shouldn't we already have a health code (at least in the business area) that takes into consideration common disease spreading?
