Indiana Businesses: Do You Have Your Required COVID-19 Business Plan in Place?

by Shannon Middleton

Governor Holcomb’s Executive Order 20-43, signed on September 24, 2020 requires all businesses situated or operating in Indiana to create a COVID-19 response plan outlining measures and safeguards for the safety of employees, customers, clients and members of the public. The plan must be provided to all employees and posted publicly. Existing policies should be reviewed and updated to reflect current practices and standards.

The minimum requirements of the COVID-19 response plan include:

  1. Establishing an employee health screening process;
  2. Implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols in the work environment, including regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces;
  3. Enhancing the ability of all staff and customers to wash hands or use company provided hand sanitizer; and
  4. “Complying with social distancing requirements established by the CDC, including maintaining six-foot social distancing for both employees and members of the general public when possible and/or employing other separation measures such as wearing face coverings or using barriers when social distancing is not possible.”

There are various employment, privacy, and safety concerns to consider in creating a COVID-19 plan, which can be tough to navigate. Need help creating your plan? Please contact Shannon or Karen.
