The Centers for Disease Control have created standard signs for businesses which meet the requirements of the guidance document. These are available for download below. You are also encouraged to create signs to describe your policies and procedures for your customers (for example "Please stand behind the line" or "Please wait in your car until your reservation is called").

Please contact the Livingston County Department of Health if you have questions regarding reopening requirements that are not addressed in these guides.
