General guidance and a step-by-step checklist for reopening your business after COVID-19
About this guide
As countries, states, and cities begin to ease lockdown restrictions, this checklist for reopening businesses can help you jumpstart your return.
You and your employees have been quarantined in your homes for the past few days weeks months, and now authorities are looking to lift restrictions and open up. You may be thinking, “We’ll be back soon, and I can get out of this house!” The problem is, if you just pick up and go, and don’t prepare for having people back in the workplace, you may run into issues that could have been easily avoided. Now is the time to prepare.
This checklist is not meant to be an exhaustive list, but it can help provide guidance as you look to reopen. It’s organized into four sections: People, Workplace, Technology, and Your Customers. Everyone’s situation is unique, but evaluating your plan with these components in mind can help you get organized and anticipate obstacles.
