The COVID-19 Enhanced Regional Public Health Partnership and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of El Paso are working in collaboration to develop and distribute resources to assist business owners as they begin the reopening process.
“We are pleased that the Better Business Bureau is helping us get the word out to the business community and remind them that they are not alone during this process.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced last week that Phase II of the Open Texas Plan will begin in most parts of the state this week, with El Paso County businesses scheduled to open beginning on May 29th.
With this announcement, business owners in the region are now developing plans to reopen their doors while maintaining health and safety practices to protect their employees and customers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our businesses are eager to open their doors, but still seek information to help protect themselves, their employees, and their customers when they reopen their operations,” said Marybeth Stevens, President of BBB of El Paso. “I thank the COVID-19 Enhanced Regional Public Health Partnership for their work in providing businesses with the resources they need to safely reopen.”
The Business Resource Center is continuously updated with the latest information and health guidance for businesses as they resume operations, including:
- Health and safety guidelines by industry sector (including training videos on the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and health and safety considerations)
- Downloadable posters and social media content in English/Spanish to help you communicate health and safety messages to your employees and customers
- Sources of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Information about COVID-19 Testing
