Submit your business re-opening plan
The only “reopening” plans that must be reviewed and approved by the Department are plans for businesses/establishments that have been closed due to violations of the Health Directive. The only “event” plans that must be reviewed and approved by the Department are “large-scale festivals, fairs, parades, sporting events, and community events.” These cannot occur unless the Department has approved a site-specific plan for the event, and any such plans should account for the requirements and guidance in any current health directive.
“Large-scale” means any event that involves more than 500 people (including attendees and staff). If there is a desire to have the Department review and assess your plan to provide a safe event to the public, please feel free to submit one through the portal by clicking "submit plans" below.
