We are excited that conversations are turning more and more towards how to return to work safely. Hopefully, this is a sign that both the health crisis and the economic crisis are beginning to ease. Here in Michigan, the governor announced today that manufacturers (including the big three - GM, Ford, Chrysler-Fiat) can restart safely as of Monday, May 11. See EO 2020-77 here.
The Small Business Assoc. of Michigan (SBAM) has created a handbook to help all small businesses think through the range of issues related to safely operating in our new COVID19 world. Click here to download the handbook. Or, as mentioned in the previous post, go to the "Get Back to Work Safely" page on SBAM's website to browse a slew of related resources.
Today's tip from Brian Calley, SBAM's president, was that every employer should be prepared to be required to take employees' temperatures on a regular basis. The details on how often and what requires a worker to go home are not clear, but buying a lot of thermometers is likely part of the future for any cafe-owner.
