As offices and retail spaces across the nation begin to open their doors for the first time after the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important for organizations to address several public safety issues beforehand. We’ve provided several tips below on how to safely re-occupy your office space during these challenging times:
Check Your State and Federal Government Regulations
One of the first things you should do is look up both your state and federal government’s regulations on how to proceed. Reopening the economy is a complex and gradual process that can differ from state to state. For example, one state may require everyone in the place of business to wear masks, while it may be optional in other states.
The U.S Chamber of Commerce recently released a guide for small businesses on how to re-open, as well as a handy State-by-State Business Reopening Guide. For further government regulations and safety tips, visit the Center of the Disease Control website.
Prevent the Spread of the Virus with Social Distancing
Another way to safely re-occupy the office space is to find ways to prevent the spread of the virus with social distancing. Although you can enforce more stringent cleaning procedures and develop new floor plans, there are other ways to streamline the process with technology.
