How to Reopen Your Business After COVID-19
A Room By Room Guide and Checklist

Back to Blog

Over the past few months many people have not been able to see friends, family or coworkers; COVID-19 has changed the way we socialize, the way we shop, the way we work, and many more of our daily interactions. As states begin to loosen restrictions and open back up there will continue to be changes to the way we shop, work, and socialize.

The decision to have customers or employees come back with in-person and face to face interactions presents a whole new set of challenges. Many of us are asking the same questions as we develop plans to open or resume operations to as close to pre-COVID-19 as possible. How can we open back up safely? What precautions are necessary? How do we remove uncertainty and keep our employees, customers, and clients feeling safe?

Based on the CDC guidelines and various local and state ordinances we have put together a guide on how to prepare your business for a safe reopening. This guide is broken down into rooms that you may have in your business locations and what interior and exterior Social Distancing, Health and Safety, Directional and Entrance signs, and products you should consider investing in to make this transition as painless as possible.
