Business Resumption Plan
As per the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), companies should consider these three questions when deciding whether to reopen.
Are you in a community no longer requiring significant mitigation?
Will you be able to limit non-essential employees to those from the local geographic area?
Do you have protective measures for employees at higher risk (e.g. teleworking, tasks that minimize contact)?
If you answered 'Yes' to all three questions, you can consider reopening and proceed with the completion of the business resumption plan.

Summary of Dates and Locations
Identify a list of hazards that your business can encounter as you resume the business. For each hazard, decide on the level of impact each will have on your business. Here is a brief guide on how to assess impact:
Negligible – limited to no business disruptions or property damage
Marginal – a hindrance that may affect business operations without
shutting down, you have no minor damage, it may be an occurrence
in the surrounding neighborhood
Critical – temporary disruptions of business or major damage to the
facility, impacts are to the community
Catastrophic – a disaster that affects entire regional community causing business disruptions and forces closure of building(s). This is
an event of large proportions. It can include complete destruction, multiple injuries or deaths, and a regional event which means limited or no outside resources available for prolonged periods of time.
Impact to Critical Business Assets
Identify key organizational outputs and evaluate their degree of importance. This involves describing and estimating the likely impact of loss or delay of that output and approximating the length of time needed to re-establish the lost output.
