Re-Opening Safety Plan: What you Need
You will need to submit a written re-opening safety plan. This plan does not need to be submitted to a state agency for approval. A copy of it must, however, be retained on premises for inspection. Include details on:
- social distancing measures
- provision of personal protective equipment (PPE)*
- sanitizing of property and space
- other precautionary measures (such as employee training)
Confirm you have read the curbside and in-store pickup guidance.
*The Brooklyn Chamber will provide a list of PPE donors and suppliers on this site
