Cities such as Michigan, BC and countries such as Denmark and Germany are slowly reopening up after a few weeks of lockdown.
This all depends on what industries and movements are allowed to have freedom of access or movement. What it clear is that the restrictions can be staggered in such a way that the spread can be prevented. Socialising with certain limits can be reopened again. Vital industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, construction, and retail could be opening up more so than others.
The question I have for your organization is: what is your reopen plan?
Are you putting in place measures to ensure that the return to business unusual is secured, in gradual mode as conditions allow?
What personnel, management, technical, and strategic issues come to play?
What capacities are available now and should be reinforced when the organization reopens?
Who needs to be recalled back? Who needs to be on standby or in anticipation of slow but steady activity?
These questions are not premature, they are ripe for asking and answering now.
