Chamber offers checklist for businesses planning to reopen

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce has released a suite of business products to help businesses across the state reopen safely and correct supply chain disruptions due to the COVID-19 crisis.

“Whether they have remained open throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, or are preparing to open again, businesses throughout Minnesota are adjusting their practices and workspaces to mitigate health risks and boost consumer confidence,” said Vicki Stute, Vice President of Programs and Businesses Services for the Chamber. “These best practices and connections will help restore their businesses and get our economy back on track.”

Chamber business products, which are ordinarily only available to Chamber members, are available to any Minnesota business during the COVID-19 crisis.

• The Return to Work Checklist is available online at www.mnchamber.com/sites/default/files/Grow!%20Return%20to%20Work%20Checklist.pdf. Additional one-on-one assistance is offered through the Chamber’s Grow Minnesota! Partnership at www.mnchamber.com/your-opportunity/grow-minnesota-partnership.

• MN Supplier Match is an online database of thousands of suppliers throughout Minnesota, with specific access to suppliers of many of the critical COVID-19-related goods that can help businesses reopen safely, once allowed to do so. Visit www.mnchamber.com/your-opportunity/mn-supplier-match

“Access to local suppliers has never been more important,” said Doug Loon, President of the Minnesota Chamber. “Throughout COVID, we’ve seen businesses benefitting from knowing each other and knowing each other’s’ experiences. Creating tighter connections in the business community will help our state’s economy recover and find lasting success.”
