    Service Desk Operations

    • Hand sanitizer will be available for team members and clients at the service desk.
    • Service desk and equipment that must be touched, such as monitors, keyboards or other equipment, will be cleaned and disinfected at least once per hour and upon a service desk shift change.
    • Requests for pricing will be available through QR code displayed at the service desk.
    • All rental equipment and material (phones, network switches, adapters, cables, etc.) will be sanitized and disinfected upon its return to our warehouse or storage room.

    Service Installation and Equipment Delivery Protocols

    • All rental equipment and material (phones, network switches, adapters, cables, etc.) will be cleaned (wiped down to remove dirt and debris), disinfected (sprayed or wiped down using an EPA-approved coronavirus disinfect solution) and placed in a plastic bag sealed with tamper tape. Rental equipment will be required to be picked up at the service desk and will be inspected by both a Technology Services team member and the receiving client to ensure the rental equipment was not compromised.
    • Any equipment that requires a Technology Service technician to install at the booth/meeting room/event space will be done so in the presence of the client. The technician will disinfect the equipment prior to leaving the space.
    • All service lines installed (telephone, internet cables) will be installed using normal installation procedures. However, after the connection is tested for quality assurance, and before the recipient of the service arrives onsite, Technology Services’ technicians will disinfect the final six feet of the service line and tag the line with a disinfected notification card listing the date of install.

What health and safety guidelines are in place?

Anaheim and Orange County returned to business as usual. Event organizers may choose to develop health and safety guidelines that are stricter than current public health guidance. Protocols set forth by event organizers are required since they are considered private events. Please check the event's website for more information.
