DEED is asking for business input via this “SURVEY to help determine Minnesota’s new social distancing norms

Dear LaPrairie Leaders and/or Staff ~

We know you are anxious for your city’s small businesses to be REOPENED ASAP! We’ve communicated that message loud and clear to the Governor’s office and to your legislators, and we will continue to do everything we can to help it happen sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, here are a couple of things you can pass on to your community's business owners that could make a difference in speeding things up:

Basically, it seems that they are trying to get a feel for each business sectors’ ability to provide a safe environment for both customers and employees.

You might also encourage them all to complete their ‘COVID-19 Preparedness Plan<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001994Ol6lCH-sYFDYMsXx7NOmCia_hijpyXxF5qlvNbbzqwaMz8WafuFyTdTKV7FaLBqGutPrxsRyoL2Y3e-2R6qWh6ldvE0OyupvtCpv5An5ZBLgQw30LIAK9wJ9SG2WCfo0cmeLlCL2DwqERq39TDzeakL6ujKrv&c=XUhHhGot2fRp5vFwr8gTu1B5d57ffmtIyPVM27MzMGrckcNoMOjt_g==&ch=tHDASDXU9xn-ZVXgBFnuVegUVlvgaBG8ihGhVUVEkhvrPf4t0-mjRw==>’ now, while they’re waiting. Per the Governor’s executive order, all reopening businesses must establish such a plan, outlining the implementation of Minnesota OSHA Standards and MDH and CDC Guidelines in your workplaces. Each plan must include guidelines and requirements for appropriate social distancing, hygiene, and public health best practices. These requirements are set forth in guidance published by DEED and DLI at https://mn.gov/deed/safework/<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001994Ol6lCH-sYFDYMsXx7NOmCia_hijpyXxF5qlvNbbzqwaMz8WafuFyTdTKV7FaLBqGutPrxsRyoL2Y3e-2R6qWh6ldvE0OyupvtCpv5An5ZBLgQw30LIAK9wJ9SG2WCfo0cmeLlCL2DwqERq39TDzeakL6ujKrv&c=XUhHhGot2fRp5vFwr8gTu1B5d57ffmtIyPVM27MzMGrckcNoMOjt_g==&ch=tHDASDXU9xn-ZVXgBFnuVegUVlvgaBG8ihGhVUVEkhvrPf4t0-mjRw==>.
