Re-Opening Businesses after Covid-19
How to create a plan for re-opening your business?
Coronavirus has caused many temporary business closures. Now that governing states are allowing businesses to reopen, owners are beginning to create plans for reopening in the safest way possible. So how do you prepare for the opening?
The first thing you need to do, even before you re-open your doors is to come up with a plan. The plan should consist of these three things: cleaning, contactless service, and six feet apart.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 it is important to make sure your business has been disinfected and cleaned. Shelter in Place occurred in March for many Americans, but the virus has been around since November of 2019. Because there are so many unknowns of when Americans came into contact with the virus it is best to deep clean your business. You should even consider having your business disinfected everyday in all areas, and paying special attention to areas that are being heavily used.
Create a plan where you can provide services or products without coming in contact with others. If you provide services such as hairstyling, nail salon, or any other service where you come into contact with people make sure to always wear gloves and a face mask.
Six Feet Apart:
Allow space for your customers to be six feet from one another. There are multiple ways you can do this, here are some examples. Putting markers on the ground to indicate six feet apart at the checkout lanes is a great way of creating social distancing measures. Making sure you are not overflowed with people; even if this means having customers wait outside of the building until others leave the building.
Many people have varying views of COVID-19 and as a business owner it is important to be aware of the opposing opinions. Create a plan that provides safeguards for all parties.
