Healthy at Work Program: Submitting Proposals for Reopening of Businesses

The “Healthy at Work” Program is a phased approach to reopen Kentucky’s economy. Healthy at Work is based on criteria set by public health experts and advice from industry experts.

Businesses that have been closed due to COVID-19 can submit an application to reopen to the Department for Public Health via an online application form. The Department for Public Health will evaluate these proposals based on White House guidelines and other government benchmarks.

Among other things, each business proposal is required to explain its ability to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to employees, adequate access to hand sanitizer and disinfectant, and minimal direct contact between employees and the public.
