STAY SAFE, STAY OPEN

RELIEF AND RECOVERY RESOURCES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

As Wisconsin businesses look to a post-pandemic future, we know that we all have a role to play in helping bring the pandemic to an end and contributing to the state’s economic prosperity.

With input from national and state health and industry experts and in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism and our regional economic development partners, WEDC has compiled a series of documents that provide guidance for how to best deal with COVID-19 on a number of fronts: safe business operations, vaccination, mental health and managing workplace outbreaks, among others.
