Reopening Tips For Small Businesses
Source: Forbes | Repost QBScott 7/1/2021 –
2020 and early 2021 were extremely challenging for small businesses. Unfortunately, many businesses closed down permanently because they couldn’t afford to wait out the pandemic. Many others had to drastically alter the way they operated. Many restaurants, for example, discontinued indoor dining and focused on pickups and deliveries.
Thankfully, life is gradually returning to some semblance of normality. People are getting vaccinated, Covid-19 infection rates are dropping in many places and many restrictions are being lifted. This, of course, will vary, depending on where you’re located. The following are some general tips to keep in mind as you reopen your business or return to a more typical way of operating.
- Keep employees informed of the latest policies and guidelines, including policies on masks, social distancing, vaccines, etc.
- Make sure your business is set up to accommodate social distancing.
- Workers should promptly report any symptoms and not come to work if they are ill.
- Stagger shifts so your workplace isn’t overcrowded.
- Use video conferencing for meetings.
