Looking ahead, safely getting back to business is not just important for the health of the economy, but for the health and well-being of all Americans. As states and regions around the country begin to reopen, success is contingent on proper safety measures, consistent guidelines and ample testing being in place, as well as public and private sector coordination.
The federal government has issued guidance for what health care providers, businesses, community organizations and individuals can do to keep the public safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19. As state and local governments continue to develop specific requirements and guidelines for their unique circumstances, Business Roundtable encourages them to align their efforts with federal guidance and each other to the greatest extent possible.
Extraordinary work has been and continues to be done by large U.S. companies to safely support the economy and deliver essential services to American families across the country through this unprecedented economic disruption. As the nation undertakes the work of economic reopening and recovery, Business Roundtable CEOs will continue to work with policymakers at all levels and experts to enable a safe and rapid recovery.
