From the Charles County Chamber of Commerce in reference to the ‘Framework for Opening’:

“These guidelines outline specific measures to aid in a safe, thoughtful reopening of businesses across categories. The specific recommendations in each category support the overall goal of opening businesses in a way that protects employees and customers from exposure to COVID-19 and helps prevent the virus’s spread. Please be advised that some or all of the information contained in this document may not be applicable to some businesses or places of work and may not include all information necessary for certain businesses and places of work. This guidance does not supersede or replace regulations on permitted and licensed facilities such as daycares, restaurants, etc. Those organizations should still consult with their regulating agency. This document does not attempt to address any health, safety and other workplace requirements in place prior to the age of COVID-19. As COVID circumstances continue to evolve, so will the public health and safety recommendations and requirements, and as a result this document may not include all current governmental or health expert  requirements and recommendations. We strongly advise that before implementing any of the practices and procedures contained herein, you carefully evaluate all and consult with your own legal counsel and other advisors regarding the legality, applicability and potential efficacy of this information in your place of business and to determine what if any other recommendations or requirements may apply to your business.”
