[ARCHIVED] COVID-19: Steps Businesses need to take before Re-opening

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) also launched, which has detailed information about how reopening will proceed. 

There are several steps businesses will need to take to take before re-opening.

Businesses can also print the below Employer and Worker posters in public-facing spaces of their business. Businesses must re-open in line with the Phases outlined in Reopening Massachusetts

  • COVID-19 control plan template – Template that satisfies the written control plan requirement for self-certification
  • Compliance attestation poster – Poster that customer facing businesses are required to print, sign, and post in an area within the business premises that is visible to workers and visitors
  • Employer and Worker posters – Posters that businesses can print and display within the business premises to describe the rules for maintaining social distancing, hygiene protocols, and cleaning and disinfecting. 

Please note that control plans do not need to be submitted for approval but must be kept on premise and made available in the case of an inspection or outbreak. 

Businesses operating to provide Essential Services, as defined in the Governor’s March 23, 2020 Executive Order, updated on March 31, April 28 and May 15, may remain open and have until May 25, 2020 to comply with these mandatory safety standards.

The goal of the phased reopening is to methodically restart the economy and reduce further COVID transmission, avoiding setbacks in public health that could cost us the progress we’ve made to date. 

Please continue to check for future updates.
