Where’s the Plan for Reopening Business?

We’re a year into the COVID-19 pandemic and there finally seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Minnesota’s COVID-19 cases are going down, vaccinations are going up and we’re on the path to protecting the state’s most vulnerable. As our situation improves we look to state leaders and ask: What’s next for businesses? What’s the plan?

Businesses that were deemed essential developed detailed strategies to protect their workforce from the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring continuity of operations. Consumer-facing businesses and office locations have used this time to develop their own plans and procedures to reopen their doors and restart their operations safely and responsibly in line with the requirements of this “new normal.” We’re ready to reopen our businesses and to reopen safely.

Businesses have suffered enough in the last year. It’s time to lay out a clear path to reopen the economy so businesses can plan for the future. Until then, employers are left asking the simple question: Where’s the plan?
