Our Friends at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce have graciously asked us to share a comprehensive SMART RESTART Guide for New Hanover County.
To ensure the safety of our community and help organizations navigate this new normal, the Chamber has created the Smart Restart New Hanover County Guide.
This comprehensive guide includes many of the recommendations developed by the New Hanover County Public Health Office, along with guidelines from the CDC and other federal, state, and local agencies. This resource will act as a living document, which we will update as this fluid situation changes.
Smart Restart includes recommendations on cleaning and disinfecting after opening, personal protective equipment and communicating with your team.
It also has specific guidance and resources for a range of industries:
• Accommodations & Lodging — Page 14
• Agriculture — Page 16
• Animal Services — Page 17
• Childcare Facilities — Page 18
• Close Contact Services — Page 22
• Construction — Page 28
• Entertainment Venues — Page 30
• Exercise Facilities — Page 37
• Financial Services — Page 39
• Food Service — Page 41
• Manufacturing — Page 44
• Medical Services — Page 46
• Offices & Professional Services — Page 53
• Pharmacies — Page 55
• Real Estate — Page 57
• Retail — Page 58
Though we know we wish to return to our regular lives, we must take necessary precautions during this time. The last thing we want is for the virus to grow during this phase. These guidelines will help you safely serve your customers and accommodate your employees.
Thank you for your support and courage as we continue to navigate through this pandemic together. We are a RESILIENT Community and we will continue to persevere the only way we know how: together.
