JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri businesses have played a critical role in the effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. As local and statewide restrictions were put into place, many employers drastically altered their operations with some closing their doors completely.
As the coronavirus response continues, many employers across the state are working to develop strategies to enable them to reopen when the threat subsides.
Today, the Missouri Chamber is launching a new part of our Uniting for Recovery plan: the Return to Work Guide. This guide is based on best practices to assist businesses in their efforts to create safe workplaces for their employees and customers.
With the statewide Stay Home Missouri order set to expire on May 4, we urge employers to download and use this Return to Work as they plan for operations to resume. Get the guide for free at mochamber.com/returntowork.
In addition, the Missouri Chamber is expanding on this topic by offering a free, three-part webinar series exploring ways to protect your workforce and workplace. The webinars will take place at 2 p.m. each day on April 28, 29 and 30. Learn more and register at mochamber.com/return-to-work-webinar.
We also strongly encourage employers to closely follow the recommendations published by Gov. Mike Parson, the State of Missouri and local health officials as they seek to reopen.
