Georgia Safely Back to Business
The global COVID-19 pandemic forced the majority of states including Georgia to implement a statewide “shelter-in-place” order including temporary closure of non-essential businesses. This movement helped Georgians to minimize the spread of the coronavirus but the pandemic has also caused a heavy toll on the state’s economy. As the government has lifted the executive order, they are allowing businesses to operate and reopen incrementally with proper implementation of the guidelines set for Georgia businesses. However, if the COVID-19 cases spike up during the phase, the administration will have to modify the restriction orders or policies.
Georgia Reopening: Basic Guidelines
The administration released basic guidelines in accordance with the published recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to promote a safe business reopening. These guidelines listed below would help business owners to minimize the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
- Wear face coverings in public and promote frequent handwashing and sanitation if possible.
- Maintain the physical distance with at least 6-feet of space between employees and customers.
- Practice intensified cleaning, disinfection, and sanitation activities to keep customers and employees safe.
- Limit the number of patrons inside the store to 50% of the full occupancy capacity of the entire store.
- Encourage employees to report any health and safety concerns to their employers.
Georgian government believes that there is a unique innovative way to deal with businesses that will reopen depending on their industry. The industry-specific business guideline would help business owners adhere to best practices, ensure the safety of workers and customers, and operate amidst the threat of the global pandemic.
