The Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry has required all non-critical sector businesses to have a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan before re-opening and all critical sector businesses are required to have a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan by June 29, 2020.  The COVID-19 Preparedness Plan must comply with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines and OSHA standards.

Failure to comply can subject the business owners to misdemeanor charges and civil penalties against the business of up to $25,000.

If your business has not yet created a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan, our firm can assist you in creating one for a flat fee of $500.  For more information please contact Blake Nelson at 952-746-2131 or [email protected].
