Is the Delta Variant Changing Your Reopening Plans?

As the  Delta variant becomes dominant across the US, including in Memphis and the Mid-South, many employers are re-thinking and changing their reopening plans.

Check out this new decision-support tool from the Health Action Alliance that walks you through key questions you should be asking yourself about you own reopening strategy: 

  • Should I mandate vaccinations for employees?
  • Should I require employees to wear masks?
  • Should I require COVID-19 testing for employees?
  • Should I track or restrict employee travel?
  • How do I manage a partially vaccinated workforce?
  • Can I ask customers for proof of vaccination or deny service to customer that aren't vaccinated?
  • What other public health and safety issues do I need to consider?

For each question the tool provides health, legal and other considerations. 

This is a must-use tool to be sure you have touched all your bases as you finalize your reopening.
