The purpose of this toolkit is to help business owners in and around the Tri-Valley, get the information they need in order to open, what steps should be taken to put you on the best path of success, and how to assess your business needs.
This year of COVID-19 has made 2020 anything, but business as usual and is truly uncharted territory for you, your employees, customers and community.
Reopening must be balanced with careful planning and diligent follow through to help protect those that depend on you for
employment and those that rely on your goods and services.
Remember, we only have one shot at opening the right way, and each business could have a profound effect on everyone’s sustainable future.
Things to consider:
What inventory, supplies, equipment and other items do you have or need? What kinds of government assistance you might be able to access?
What’s the feedback from employees, customers, suppliers and creditors/investors?
What’s your business’s financial position?
Have any of your key customers and/or suppliers been affected by the disaster, and if so, how will this impact your business?
What will be your sanitation and disinfection process? Assessing the health and temperature of your employees? Social distancing measures? Training your employees on the process?
What online updates and notifications do you need to do?
Do you need to change the way you do business to reach your customers? How will you market and advertise your reopening?
What, if any, enhancements do you need to make to your POS system?
Lastly, we have provided information directly from resources such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC), US Chamber of Commerce, State of California, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Alameda and Contra Costa County Health Services and others, but understand this guidance is advisory in nature and informational in content. With the fluidity of COVID-19 guidance, orders and regulations have been changed and are being updated on a continual and rapid basis so there may be a change to a standard or a regulation, and it neither creates new legal obligations nor does it alter any existing obligations.
