To curtail the spread of COVID-19, many business enterprises have been forced to close during an extended period of social distancing. Restarting a business now that social distancing regulations are starting to relax will not be as simple as resuming pre-pandemic business practices.

This guide and checklist to restarting a business after COVID-19 from TechRepublic Premium will help SMBs reopen their businesses safely and efficiently. Because the most important role for any business operating in the aftermath of a pandemic is the assurance of a safe and healthy workplace environment.

From the guide:

The worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has disrupted what was once considered a “normal modern life.” To curtail the spread of COVID-19, many business enterprises have been forced to close during an extended period of social distancing. Other enterprises and organizations that could, or had to, remain in operation, have greatly modified how they conducted day-to-day business as a precaution to further spreading disease. And despite what many may wish to be true, restarting a business now that social distancing regulations are starting to relax will not be as simple as resuming pre-pandemic business practices.

Until there is a readily available vaccine or at the very least effective treatments for the afflicted, COVID-19 remains a dangerously contagious disease-spreading virus, and your business practices must evolve to reflect that fact. Businesses will have to make adjustments, sometimes expensive and/or inconvenient adjustments, to ensure a safe workplace for employees, customers, and the community at large. It is our new reality.
