County supervisors Tuesday unanimously voted to adopt a framework to reopen businesses in a safe manner during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The framework offers guidelines on employee and customer safety, sanitation, physical distancing, and general business practices and communications.

According to a Board of Supervisors letter, business owners should prepare for when Gov. Gavin Newsom “takes the necessary steps to allow San Diego County to go back to work.”

After the vote, Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said it’s important to “start the difficult work of rebuilding our economy, but it is vital that it be done right.”

Tuesday’s meeting was the fourth held via teleconference since the pandemic began, with supervisors voting remotely.
