What’s Ahead?


Overview

As of June 2020, many states across the US are entering more advanced phases of reopening following shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we all learn to navigate this new normal, and previously shutdown businesses reopen, there is a lot to consider in the process. It can feel overwhelming sorting through all of the new recommendations, policies, procedures and guidelines!

Adding to our collection of easy-to-digest, user-friendly resources and checklists, this blog post contains checklists covering reopening best practices following the COVID-19 pandemic. While these guidelines are specifically geared towards the early stages of reopening, the information can still be of use as the country moves forward and we navigate this new normal!

This is a dynamic blog that will be expanded in the coming weeks and months as we create new checklists based on industry-leading guidance. If you don’t see a checklist for the industry or workplace you’re looking for, please let us know here what you’d like to see, and it may be the next list we create!
