Our goal is to help businesses take responsible steps toward resuming work, serving customers and rebuilding our economy.  We are here to support you through the reopening process.


Sample signage is available for businesses to print and post at their respective establishments, or model their own signage after. Communication to patrons and visitors will be key in setting expectations and helping to keep everyone safe. At a minimum, all businesses approved to resume operations should have signs reminding patrons to observe social distancing and face covering requirements.


Before reopening, all facilities must:

  • Perform a detailed risk assessment and create a site-specific protection plan
  • Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19. This includes how to screen themselves for symptoms and when to stay home.
  • Set up individual control measures and screenings
  • Put disinfection protocols in place
  • Establish physical distancing guideline

It is critical that employees needing to self-isolate because of COVID-19 are encouraged to stay at home, to prevent further infection in your workplace. If you have an employee test positive for COVID-19, click here to see the guidelines. See additional information on government programs supporting sick leave and worker’s compensation for COVID-19.
