Minnesota universal business guidance for ALL businesses and retailers starting Friday -- remember to update your plans per State guidelines

Beginning this Friday most Minnesota COVID business restrictions end, however all businesses including retailers are reminded that previous requirements are replaced by a new "Universal Guidance For All Businesses And Entities" document.

The five page plan should be reviewed now with the appropriate updates to COVID preparedness plans put in place on this Friday, May 28.

The Universal Guidance For All Businesses And Entities can be found here:  https://staysafe.mn.gov/assets/covid-19-universal-guidance-for-all-businesses-and-entities_tcm1152-480317.pdf

From the document:

“This guidance applies to all business and places of public accommodation (“businesses”)-defined by Executive Order 21-11, as amended by Executive Order 21-21 and EO-23 (“EO”) from Friday, May 28, 2021 through the earlier of June 30, 2021 or until 70% of Minnesotans aged 16+ receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The EO requires all businesses to have and implement a written COVID-19 Preparedness Plan that addresses EO requirements and applicable Stay Safe Industry Guidance. “Businesses” are broadly defined to include any entity that employs or engages workers, including owners, employees, contractors, vendors, volunteers, or interns.

  • Plan templates are available on the Stay Safe Guidance for All Business Entities website (staysafe.mn.gov/industry-guidance/all-businesses.jsp).
  • The representative responsible for implementing the Plan must sign and certify the Plan, affirming their commitment to implement the Plan. Businesses must assign a designated Plan administrator to ensure the Plan is evaluated, monitored, executed, and updated as needed.
  • Each business must provide its Plan, in writing, to all workers, and the Plan must be posted at all of the business’s workplaces in locations that will allow for the Plan to be readily reviewed by all workers. If physical posting is impracticable, the Plan must be posted electronically. Plans must also be available to regulatory authorities and public safety officers, upon request.
  • Each business must ensure that training is provided to workers on the contents of its Plan and required procedures, so that all workers understand and are able to perform the precautions necessary to protect themselves, their co-workers, their customers, and their visitors.
  • When more than one business has authority, responsibility, or control over workers, locations, or activities, each business must coordinate their implementation of these requirements.”
