Act with Caution and Save Lives

Please defer to the CDC and health experts in re-opening our society. Set partisanship aside and show that we value lives. Centralized responsible leadership based upon our healthcare experts' recommendations should guide our society.

Also, stop encouraging protests of states that are taking this issue seriously to protect their citizens.

Our lives depend upon it.

Training given to all businesses

Creating a task force consisted of individuals who are experts on disinfecting and hand hygiene processes. The practices of hand hygiene that I have been currently observing have been very poor. The task force could go around and teach the practices that need to be followed and provide checklist on the procedure so all businesses have the same process. This will provide uniformity and have et guidance to follow.

Educated on what resources their employer is providing for exposure to covid -19

Have posters on displays that explain the employees rights, and available resources, and contact phone numbers... more »

Accessibility will be fundamental in the Reopening of Business

All work settings need to be able to provide ADA accommodations for people with disabilities as they come back to work and or readjust their work settings.

What "WE" Workers and Employers can do to reopen America's workplaces safely

"WE" have all been training for this day! Trust in the guidelines that have been circulated throughout America and the world. "WE" will maintain the CRUCIAL and BASIC PRACTICES that WE have adapted to. WE all know them by now!

This new normal of sanitizing all surfaces, continuing to wear masks and gloves, being cognizant of what WE touch, how we sneeze, how we cough, how WE decontaminate ourselves when we return home/work,... more »

Please don't forget about childcare when opening up

I am work with childcare providers in my daily life. When in the course of helping individuals find employment, they often encounter many barriers. Childcare is a major barrier for individuals with low income. Often the people who work in the childcare field are also low income and on the fringes, as well. Right now, childcare centers have been forced to close their doors. This impacts those who want to go to work but... more »

President

We are not anywhere near ready to open up America..especially our area here. Lack of testing and "Contact Tracing" is non-existent. We seem to be in a hurry to get back the economy at the cost of American lives...FOR NOTHING. Get a grip; testing, testing, testing.

Assembler

Well for starters before opening have a plan what work needs to be completed. How much inventory is needed. Be sure you have a clean work place. Water fountain should be blocked. It full of germs. Fans should be cleaned. They have never been cleaned.
