The Re-Open Business Plan Didn’t Work. Here’s The Stay-Open Plan
Social Distance Management drives business community towards Universal Standards of Compliance Post-COVID.
Throughout North America, individual jurisdictions and business owners have been given autonomy in their re-opening strategies with basic frameworks for sanitation and containment provided by government. While there have been resources and procedures put forth throughout various networks, Social Distance Management calls for the business community to adopt universal standards of Social Distance Compliance to promote uniformity and prevent repeat lockdowns.
One does not simply re-open. We need a STAY OPEN Plan that includes Universal Standards of Compliance & Risk. #SocialDistance #SocialDistanceManagement #COVID19 #Reopen
Collaboration amongst political and health officials along with the business community has never been more important. With regards to the Restaurant industry, it should not be the case that some establishments require face shields, gloves, appropriate signage, along with sanitation and screening routines; while others have done little more than reduce dining room capacity. This sort of disparity in the preparedness to re-open will lead to extended disruptions to the economy.
68% percent of Americans say they would feel uncomfortable eating at a restaurant, according to an April survey from SAP’s Qualtric.
People and businesses can’t manage themselves through unprecedented new challenges presented by the pandemic. This calls for uniformity in both standards of compliance and threat levels. Traffic signals in New York are the same as they are in Miami, therefore order and accountability can be determined with the same measures. In terms of the amount of the level of vigilance required by individuals, we recommend a five-tiered threat/risk level system similar to the National Terrorism Advisory: Low, Moderate, Substantial, Severe and Critical. Municipal and corporate policies, then, can then be driven by the degree of local vulnerability.
