Helping Local Businesses Get Back to Work

Step 2 of Phase 2 of the Commonwealth’s four-phase reopening plan will begin on Monday, June 22, allowing additional industries to resume operations under sector-specific guidance.

Reopening State Guidelines for Massachusetts, May 18, 2020

The following steps must be taken by businesses that are either currently open as they are considered essential or because they fall under the parameters of return to work for the Governors “Phase 1: Start” requirements. This requirement of a written control plan will be required of all businesses that are allowed to open in “Phase 2: Cautious” and “Phase 3: Vigilant”. If you are not currently allowed to open, please take this time to develop your plan.

All businesses in the state of MA must develop a written control plan outlining how its workplace will comply with the mandatory safety standards for operation in the COVID-19 reopening period. This template may be filled out to meet that requirement. Control plans do not need to be submitted for approval but must be kept on premise and made available in the case of an inspection or outbreak.
