This informational document suggests that business owners and other building operators should start developing a plan as soon as possible by assembling their team, communicating with tenants, vendors, and contractors, assessing new risks, and consulting with legal consul. They also urge readers to stay informed by reading local mandates as well as guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and other information from public health agencies.
