COVID-19 business toolkit

This toolkit will continue to be updated daily as new information and resources become available. Please continue to check back for updates.

 

COVID-19 preparedness plan resources

The completed business preparedness plan is not required to be submitted to the Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) for approval, but needs to be made available upon request.

Non-Critical Sector industrial and office-based businesses that are non-customer facing are allowed to reopen as long as they have created a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.

By June 29, 2020, Critical Sector businesses are required to develop and implement a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan that complies with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) COVID-19 guidelines and OSHA standards.
