St. Louis Reopening Health Safety Protocols

The St. Louis Development Corporation in collaboration with Explore St. Louis, the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, the St. Louis Regional Chamber, business stakeholders and economic development representatives from 15 surrounding counties came together to form the STL Regional Business Recovery Initiative. The Initiative has assisted local industry leaders in creating health and safety plans and protocols, along with public health officials, to help guide the reopening of businesses. As part of the Initiative, small working groups that tapped industry experts were convened to provide input in a variety of key segments.

Policies put in place will help provide health and safety for all as we start St. Louis’ recovery. You can learn more about the Health & Safety Protocols businesses are taking to keep customers safe as we begin the Road to Recovery in St. Louis.
