Now that you’re open and have set up COVID-19 safety measures for your staff and customers, what have you done to protect your business? For example, are you using consent and waiver forms for your staff and customers? Do you have written policies and procedures for your staff? Do you have signage and rules posted for your customers? What kind of daily and long-term record keeping practices have you set up? Are you overpromising a safe environment for your staff and customers? Many states are experiencing a second wave or at least increases in COVID-19 cases as a result of the reopenings. How are you staying up-to-date on the regulations and guidelines that apply to your business?
