Business Reopening Plan

Posted: May 13, 2020

The Sussex County Chamber, Sussex County Economic Development Partnership, Inc. and the County of Sussex are working together and through a tri-county partnership to formulate a business reopening plan for the many businesses throughout the county that have been forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Their collective hope is that some of these shut downs and restrictions will start to ease in the next few weeks and businesses will be allowed to reopen. The most likely scenario is a gradual opening, with some businesses and organizations allowed to reopen before others. New health and safety requirements to help guide businesses in operating in this new world are also expected.

In order to properly formulate a plan for a business to reopen, they need help and are asking businesses to send them their “best practices” for opening and any suggestions/recommendations they may have.

Together, the partnership and the businesses can hopefully formulate a strategy that will provide a plan for businesses to reopen—and stay open. For assistance, refer to the partnership’s Things to Consider in Planning for the Reopening of Your Business document.

Time is of the essence and responses are sought, if possible, by Friday, May 15, 2020 at noon. The preliminary recommendations/best practices submitted will be presented to the tri-county partnership to compile a plan to submit to the governor ASAP.
