During the past 6+ weeks, retailers have been following guidelines of the CDC & WHO and taking extra precautions to ensure customer safety, employee safety, and environment safety.
Recently the Retail Industry Leaders Association and the National Retail Federation released a Blueprint for Safe Shopping. The blueprint details three phases for reopening retail:
Phase 1 – Allow E-commerce, contactless curbside pickup & in-home delivery
Phase 2 – Re-open stores to the public, with social distancing protocols & reduced occupancy
Phase 3 – Establish protection, then lift all restrictions
