Introduction to Coronavirus Business Reopening

The Coronavirus Business Reopening solution can be used during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic to guide the reopening of locations that are in multiple jurisdictions.

In the United States, business reopening has been delegated to individual states, and governors have established guidelines that must be met before each state can start to reopen. The disaggregated nature of these guidelines has made it difficult for organizations with business locations across geographically diverse jurisdictions to make reopening decisions. A consolidated view of authoritative case data and relevant health restrictions simplifies the decision to open or close a location and allows an organization to adjust its plans as the pandemic evolves. Coronavirus Business Reopening is typically implemented by organizations that want to take a proactive data-driven approach to reopening plans and adjust business operations, when necessary, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coronavirus Business Reopening solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you continuously evaluate business locations to determine readiness, visualize the latest authoritative COVID-19 case data and health restrictions for surrounding communities, and prioritize where reopening can begin.
