COVID-19 Guidance

The Health District is providing the following guidance in order to help prevent renewed spread of the COVID-19 virus once the Governor’s directive is lifted and businesses begin to re-open.  This guidance does not override any directives or orders from the Governor’s office; businesses must first check to see if they are allowed to operate.  These guidelines suggest general measures that businesses may take to increase the level of safety for staff and customers once they resume operating.  There are numerous other resources available online from the CDC and other organizations as well – some links are provided below.  Businesses are encouraged to review any different guidance documents and then make a clear written plan to that is applicable to their own operations.  More specific industry guidance is being developed by a task force; they will be added as the Governor’s directives change and the guidance is rolled out.
