CDC Revised Reopening Guidelines COVID19

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has set out new guidelines for schools, restaurants and other workplaces looking to reopen safely in the pandemic era. The tools for business owners feature six “decision trees” to determine readiness to relaunch, including being in line with state and local orders and preparedness to protect staff who are more at risk from the virus. Firms should also limit shared staff spaces, while mass-transit operators should close every other row of seats to facilitate social distancing, among other recommendations.
