As Businesses Re-open and Try to Return to Normal Operations…
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused havoc to the normal existence of many businesses. Employers have had to make severe staffing and operational changes and even, in some instances, close businesses to adjust to the declining economic and health conditions.
Thankfully, a lot of businesses are finding that with the help of the Paycheck Protection Program and the continuing leveling off of COVID-19-related cases, the government and business economic situations are loosening many former business restrictions that were put in place during the apex of the pandemic. As such, many businesses are re-opening, up staffing and hoping to return to some semblance of normality. However, given that the COVID-19 virus has not been fully-eradicated and the risk of exposure is still in existence, employers need to remain cautious in how they return.

In any case, there is now a new “normal” for the foreseeable future and some specific considerations are required. We’ve pulled together some resources and information for you, so you’re ready to return to business.
