Smart Restart

Health Beyond Home

Maintaining health and safety beyond the home will be essential to safely dial up life, community and the economy and is the shared goal of us all as we persevere through these challenging times. These tools are compiled from many sources for community organizations, businesses, families and individuals to consider as we resume our daily activities.

A Smart Restart

Maintaining health and safety in both the workplace and throughout our community is essential to successfully navigating COVID-19, as we move from crisis to a “new normal”. From the start of the COVID-19 crisis, MCW and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) have partnered to provide expert advice and guidance through a variety of webinars and resources.

MCW and MMAC continue to partner by sourcing and vetting information to develop a toolkit to help businesses identify risks and implement health and safety procedures. This toolkit provides a one-stop shop for information, guidance and resources to get businesses up and running as safely as possible. Updates to the toolkit will continue as more resources and information become available.
