Protective dressing: I do not know the nature of his work place but wear protective garment like mask and face covers/glassed. Social distancing as much as possible. Wash hands to touch your body parts and face. Wash hands before leaving work to go home. He should try and clean, if he has a personal work place, at least daily when he comes in with diluted bleach.
