As Normalcy Returns, Adopt Visitor Policies

While few member companies stopped operating during stay-at-home orders these past months, it was not business-as-usual.

You rarely welcomed visitors, in part because there were few visitors to welcome.

As business resumes, the folks who travel to other companies are asking permission to visit, and the companies who accept visitors are introducing protocols.

Association partner Sentry Insurance suggests rescheduling visitors who are not involved with essential operations. For others, introduce a pre-screening process that includes these questions:

  • Have you traveled outside the local community in the past 14 days?
  • Have you had close contact with people who’ve tested positive for COVID-19?
  • Are you experiencing any unexplained health symptoms?

Once inside, visitors should also continue social distancing practices and wear protective gear in keeping with your policies and state requirements.
