SVED Insider - Special Newsletter #8
Idaho Rebounds
What It Means for You
Last week Governor Brad Little released his plan for reopening the Idaho Economy.

This newsletter is dedicated to help Blaine County businesses understand what it means for them.

There are several things to keep in mind with respect to this plan:
  • Idaho will only advance from the current stage to the next if the specified criteria are met (these are detailed on the Idaho Criteria page of the plan)
  • Stages may be extended or reversed based on criteria trends
  • the target dates are a best-case scenario
  • all business openings require that current social distancing measures are met

                Stay Safe        Stay Healthy       Do the Right Thing

Quick Reference Matrix
Operating Standards
Idaho businesses are empowered to adopt operating standards, or protocols, for their businesses. Many industries are working on, or have already adopted, standards for operating in this COVID-19 environment.

Your industry group or organization is a good place to start in developing best practices to protect your employees and patrons. If your business is subject to a licensing authority this is also a potential source for operating standards.

Below are examples we have seen to date:

(inc. transport, pool, golf, spa, screening and reporting protocols)
5 Things You Can (and should) Do Now
  1. Identify your business in the Quick Reference Matrix or Idaho Rebounds Plan.
  2. Know and understand what you will need to reopen your business, when permitted.
  3. Have a plan to ensure your customers feel safe and protected.
  4. Order necessary posters, PPE, sanitation, separation devices and other equipment now.
  5. Have a communication plan for your employees and customers in the event your business experiences a positive case.
