  • Staff should wear and use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment according to your existing policies and procedures.
  • Have soap and paper towels in bathrooms at all times.

Marketing – It’s critical to communicate openly with your customers about the status of your operations, what protective measures you’ve implemented, and how they (as customers) will be protected when they visit your business. Promotions may also help incentivize customers who may be reluctant to patronize your business.

Consider providing in-home services i.e. provide free delivery, etc.

Share best practices with other businesses in your communities (especially those in your supply chain), chambers of commerce, and associations to improve community response efforts.
