Member Alert April 22: Healthy at Work: Submit Proposals for Reopening Businesses

Gov. Beshear on Tuesday announced the Healthy at Work initiative, which is a phased approach to reopening Kentucky’s economy.

Healthy at Work is based on criteria set by public health experts and advice from industry experts. Phase 1 is a state-readiness evaluation. Phase 2 is an individual business-readiness evaluation.

During Phase 2 of Healthy at Work, the Department for Public Health will evaluate individual businesses’ ability to safely reopen. Businesses closed due to COVID-19 may begin submitting reopen proposals via the online reopen application. The Department for Public Health will evaluate these proposals based on White House guidelines and other government benchmarks.

For questions and additional information, please email HealthyAtWork@ky.gov.
