Before reopening, you should sanitize your place of business to limit the spread of germs to your employees and customers. Keep this process limited to as few people as possible.
Communication during this time is incredibly important. As you prepare to reopen, share information with your employees about your plans to implement cleaning and safety protocols.
Remain available to and transparent with your employees. Have conversations with them about their concerns. Some employees may be at higher risk for severe illness, such as older adults and those with chronic medical conditions. Your team’s health is of the utmost importance, so loop employees in on your reopening strategy.

Businesses should strive to keep a minimum quantity of a 15-day supply of appropriate PPE on hand.
