Putting Return to Work Guidance into Action

June 3, 2020 12:00 pm - June 3, 2020 1:00 pm



Pressure is building for companies and schools to re-open. The CDC’s re-open guidance calls on businesses and schools to monitor for symptoms and have systems to protect high-risk individuals. The Business Roundtable also released its framework for workplace and public safety to help build confidence among workers and consumers that they can safely return to work and public activity.

But as offices and storefronts prepare to re-open, they face a range of complex challenges – ensuring social distancing and mask wearing, re-setting open office floor plans, temperature checks and contact tracing, and potential liability issues, among others. And for cities, the biggest hurdle might be the commute.

Join this webinar to hear our experts discuss the risks and challenges as lockdowns ease and their insights into the safeguards businesses should consider as they begin to resume normal operations.
