Below is a press release from State Representative Dave Robertson’s Office:
WILMINGTON, MA — With the beginning of the Governor’s phased reopening, we now enter a stage where we must balance safety and productivity.
Public safety regulations will be done in conjunction between municipalities and the state. These regulations were developed by the Governor’s Reopening Board, under Lt. Governor Polito’s Chair. Members of the Board include healthcare experts, business and industry leaders, as well as public safety officials. Retail and pet-services may begin with curbside drop-offs, While construction and office space may open again with skeleton crews. We ask that you assist any employees who live with high-risk individuals by making alternative arrangements. Businesses will also need to purchase Personal Protective Equipment for all employees, as well as develop and retain on file a detailed protection plan.
(Lists of PPE vendors and models for protection plans can be found at mass.gov/reopening for your reference. If you are unable to access the list or the plan, let us know so we can mail one to you.)
We have received inquiries from many businesses who are “blended” models or small specialty shops. As part of the reopening plan, we encourage you to submit your amended operations to us, so we may present the plans to the committee on your behalf. Together we can walk through the best practices proposed by like establishments and what you may and may not be able to implement easily for your specific business location. This allows us to put forward to the committee a pragmatic and personalized plan that addresses any/all safety concerns for your business.
We are in a defining moment of transition in the chronology of this health crisis. By working together we can continue our path towards success. Massachusetts was hit particularly hard via an early outbreak of this virus. Since then, we have learned many valuable lessons. We must not forget those lessons as we march onward and we will not make any of the same mistakes again.
As always, be safe and stay healthy.
