Your Blueprint to Staying Open & In Compliance During a Pandemic
As I write this post the United States has seen it's highest influx in COVID-19 cases to date. 50,203 new coronavirus cases were reported just two days ago. It was the record for one day, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The experts are warning of a near future of 100,000 possible new cases a day. These numbers would be the highest of any country in the world. Regardless of our personal beliefs, these are the facts. Not only is the virus spreading, parts of the country are moving back to state wide lock downs.
As a small business I have seen hundreds of people I know personally exposed to major financial duress and even closure based on these state wide shut downs. We have seen full residential programs shut down and send all students home. We have seen programs close the doors. We have seen institutions extend remote learning now into Q1 of the 2021 school year. We continue to see what many are seeing - uncertainty and doubt.
If your business was forced to shut down tomorrow, how would that impact you and your loved ones? It is devastating to say the least.
Business owners in every corner of the world are facing immense, and at times, seemingly insurmountable challenges—from shuttering storefronts for the safety of staff and patrons, to laying off valued employees, to facing existential questions around continued operations once the pandemic is over.
There is no clear direction or protocol that walks a business through how to mitigate, test and reopen. It's left to each business owner, local State Health Departments with some guidance from the The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
With this new increase of COVID-19 cases reported, how will you stay ahead of things to assure the impact to your business, clients, patients and students is reduced and controlled?
You need a plan that keeps you open for business while assuring all employees and clients are safe & healthy.
Over the past few months we have been working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Universities, Regional School Districts, Mental Health Experts and Facilities to build a cohesive outline that can be used as a reference to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 while keeping staff, students and facility safe and able to work.
Through state, local and national guidelines we have put together a best-in-class plan to help schools, assisted living facilities along with mental & behavioral businesses ensure a safe & healthy plan to conduct business while keeping staff, students and families healthy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
This plan incorporates best practices identified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health, and regional education and healthcare experts. The core components of this plan can be used to draft a state specific document based on your specific regional requirements.
This COVID-19 Preparedness Plan includes the following documents:
CDC Teacher Checklist
CDC Parent Checklist
COVID Employee Agreement
Parent / Student Agreement
Facility Guidance Guide
School Readiness Tool
Who Should Be Tested
When & How Should You Test
Staying Safe During a Pandemic
Think of this as a blueprint that can be built on versus having to start from a blank page.
