Businesses Preparing to Reopen

 

Small business owners should be preparing to reopen by developing a proactive plan for controlling their environment. Writing policies and procedures to account for these activities will help to speed the reopening process. The spread of COVID-19 is manageable and preventable, but it takes thoughtful consideration. Much of which can be developed now before the opening of business.


Fortunately, a template already exists in reviewing the operational procedures of essential businesses which have remained open during the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has authored Reopening Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting Public Spaces, Workplaces, Businesses, Schools, and Homes, which can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/reopen-guidance.html. In addition, the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry has also disseminated recommendations, which are available here: http://mochamber.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Return-to-Work.pdf.


Specific guidance from St. Louis County Department of Public Health and the County Executive’s Office is being created and should be available this week. Dr. Sam Page indicated this morning that the re-opening will be “slow, deliberate, and measured.”
