Your COVID-19 Security Continuity Checklist Remains a Critical Tool
After months of eased restrictions in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the State of Maryland once again tightened certain constraints this month, scaling back capacity in restaurants from 75% to 50% in response to increased case numbers and hospitalizations. The governor also strongly discouraged gatherings of more than 25 people, while some counties placed stricter restrictions on capacity for gyms, stores, places of worship, and more.
The move reinforces the notion that the pandemic continues to impact not only the DMV area, but also the country at large. And while subsequent lockdowns will hopefully not be implemented or required – and promising news of a vaccine is on the horizon – it remains critical for businesses to maintain organized and easy-to-understand protocols in the event of the unforeseen.
In March, the World Health Organization’s declaration of a pandemic sent the nation – and the world – into a spiral of uncertainty. Many business owners were unprepared and began scrambling to ensure the sanctity of their teams and workflows.
Luckily, we have learned a great deal over the last eight months, and businesses have established contingency plans and practices for use when emergencies occur.
