On June 5, Governor Tim Walz signed Emergency Executive Order 20-74, which requires all businesses to develop and implement a COVID-19 preparedness plan by June 29, 2020. While this plan does not need to be submitted to the state, all businesses are required to have one if the state asks to see it (e.g. in the course of an investigation or in response to an employee complaint).
To ensure that businesses have a clear sense of what steps they should prepare to take, the state of Minnesota has produced not only guidance, but also industry-specific templates for businesses to use as they develop their plans.
