RICHMOND, Va. - The Virginia Chamber of Commerce released a plan aimed at assisting Virginians getting back to work since the coronavirus pandemic.

The Chamber released its "Blueprint for Getting Virginians Back to Work" plan, to provide guidance on how to get the Virginia economy moving again.

The plan provides guidance for businesses and policymakers as the Commonwealth begins to fully reopen the economy.

“As our government and business leaders consider how to best recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that they have the guidance to ensure consumer confidence and worker safety,” said Virginia Chamber President and CEO Barry DuVal. “The Chamber has launched this Blueprint for Getting Virginians Back to Work initiative to provide recommendations on operating in the current economic climate and how to return stronger than before. Through this effort, it is clear that business owners are reopening with the health and safety of Virginians as their top priority.”

In April and May, the Chamber used a series of surveys and roundtable discussions to create the final plan.

More than 26,000 Chamber member companies, over 100 local chambers of commerce, industry trade associations and non-profits, and other key thought leaders from across the state, were apart of the process.
