Responsible Return Plans

A Responsible Return involves working together to share best practices, ideas, and protocols for safely returning employees and customers to workplaces and retail stores. The RESTART Task Force has created this site for companies to share their “Responsible Return” plans with other businesses in the region. This ensures that safely reopening our economy is a precompetitive effort, and provides tips, tools, and plans for businesses that are looking to reopen safely.

Businesses are encouraged to upload PDF documents that will help others as they create their Responsible Return protocols.  We’re grateful to Kroger, Turner Construction, Cushman Wakefield, and the City of Cincinnati for being part of the launch, and we encourage other companies to share their protocols to help all of us get up and running safely and effectively.

These plans are not comprehensive and should be interpreted as the complete plans that a company or business is taking to reopen. We encourage you to reach out to participating businesses with questions. The RESTART Task Force and affiliated organizations do not endorse each of these plans in detail; we simply are making them available as a tool for companies seeking best practices to Responsibly Return. 

If you would like to upload your Responsible Return plans and protocols, use the link below. Be a part of the Cincinnati region’s effort to ensure that ALL of us return to work and commerce safe and strong.
