From Mayor Jim Strickland:
For our business owners—as we look to slowly reopen our economy, it is very important that you familiarize yourself with our Back-to-Business plan and the COVID-19 Compliant Protocols listed within it.
The protocols are for you and your employees’ safety, as well as, the safety of your customers. We want to get things moving again, but we can’t do it at the expense of the public health.
The protocols cover five areas:
- Measures to protect employee health (where applicable to the facility)
- Measures to protect visitor/customer health
- Measures to ensure physical separation
- Measures to prevent unnecessary contact
The full plan and more in-depth information on protocol requirements can be seen here.
As I’ve said over and over again, we are going to listen to what the medical experts tell us and our decisions will be based on data and not a specific date to reopen.
