Massachusetts Reopening Guidelines


Mandatory Workplace Safety Standards

Mass. DPH and COVID-19 Command Center issued mandatory workplace safety standards that apply universally to all workplaces open in Phase 1, and are applicable to all sectors and industries. These safety standards also have additional sector-specific safety protocols and recommended best practices.

COVID-19 Control Plan Template

All Massachusetts businesses must develop a written control plan outlining how its workplace will comply with the mandatory safety standards for operation in the COVID-19 reopening period. This template may be filled out to meet that requirement. Control plans do not need to be submitted for approval but must be kept on premise and made available in the case of an inspection or outbreak. All individually listed businesses must complete a control plan, even if the business is part of a larger corporation or entity.  VIEW | DOWNLOAD THE TEMPLATE

Required Workplace Posters

Customer facing businesses are required to print, sign, and post signage that is visible to workers and visitors. These posters describe the rules for maintaining social distancing, hygiene protocols, and cleaning and disinfecting.
