SoCo LaunchSonoma County Economic Development board introduces SoCo Launch.

Sonoma County Economic Development board has spent the last several weeks working directly with businesses as they look for financial resources, workforce support and the opportunity to modify their operations to continue to provide limited services and goods to consumers during this time.

In addition to assisting the local business community as they navigate the different programs available and most recent Health Orders, our team has partnered with local business sectors and the Department of Public Health to develop mitigation strategies to help reopen local businesses as quickly and safely as possible.

As a result, we’re excited to announce SoCo Launch, an online portal featuring all of the resources you need to safely and successfully re-open your business, in accordance with the latest Public Health Order. This guide is aimed to help business owners understand at what point they may be able to re-open for consumers amidst the four phases outlined by the State of California.

Business Mitigation Measure Checklist
• As you build your business plan to incorporate the necessary protocol to reopen once allowed by local and/or state health orders, review this checklist to ensure you’re meeting or exceeding necessary requirements to reopen

Best Management Practices
• To ensure businesses in specific industries have a consistent and easy to use outline for suggested approaches in order to quickly and safely reopen their businesses, we’ve created guidelines for local industries to reference as we move through the different phases of reopening

Business Self-Certification Portal
• We’ve created an online portal for businesses to self-certify, once state and/or local health orders allow them to open, that they are committed to meeting or exceeding requirements of the Business Mitigation Practices put into place by the County of Sonoma to prevent the spread of COVID-19

We understand that local businesses strive to provide a safe environment for staff and patrons and we are here to support you as you work to reopen.
