Executive Order 20-40, issued by Gov. Tim Walz on April 23, 2020, requires each business in operation during
the peacetime emergency establish a “COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.”

A business’s COVID-19 Preparedness Plan shall establish and explain the necessary policies, practices and
conditions to meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health
(MDH) guidelines for COVID-19 and federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards
related to worker exposure to COVID-19. The plan should have the strong commitment of management and be
developed and implemented with the participation of workers. The Minnesota Department of Labor and
Industry, in consultation with MDH, has the authority to determine whether a plan is adequate.

Your COVID-19 Preparedness Plan must include and describe how your business will implement at a minimum
the following:
1. infection prevention measures;
2. prompt identification and isolation of sick persons;
3. engineering and administrative controls for social distancing;
4. housekeeping, including cleaning, disinfecting and decontamination;
5. communications and training for managers and workers necessary to implement the plan; and
6. provision of management and supervision necessary to ensure effective ongoing implementation of
the plan.
