Tourism Sarnia-Lambton has developed a “Restart Sarnia-Lambton Toolkit & Resource Guide” to assist our Tourism Industry Partners with reopening through the stages of COVID-19.
Reopening business is a phased approach and business owners must be flexible and prepared to adapt with COVID-19 regulations as we move forward. This guide highlights 8 steps to operating during a pandemic:
Step 1: Determining if your business is approved to open and identify the restrictions.
Step 2: Preparing your workforce by protecting them, educating them, and communicating with them about COVID-19 regulations, rights, and options.
Step 3: Preparing your workplace by planning routine cleanings, installing the proper safety signage, setting a limit on the number of people who can enter, etc.
Step 4: Creating a plan to physically distance.
Step 5: Reducing touch points and increasing cleaning.
Step 6: Preparing your supply chain by coordinating delivery schedules, ensuring your business is stocked with the necessary supplies, and making a plan moving forward.
Step 7: Communicate with confidence with your employees, your customers, and clients.
Step 8: Equip your staff and workplace with the necessary signage and resources.
