As the Louisiana economy slowly begins to reopen, JEDCO remains a steadfast partner and resource for the Jefferson Parish business community. The Parish has officially entered Phase 1 of the Jefferson Back to Business Plan, a comprehensive strategy that allows for incremental progress in returning to regular work and life. JEDCO and Jefferson Parish developed the plan in concert with medical leaders and an industry task force that will enable Jefferson Parish to reopen the economy in a way that is thoughtful, careful and rooted in public health to ensure the safety of residents and employees. Phase 1 of the Back to Business Plan aligns closely with the state and federal plans to ensure we’re all moving forward together.

In addition to the Back to Business Plan, JEDCO created a variety of checklists to provide businesses with guidelines and recommendations for reopening and operating safely. The organization also developed checklists that can be printed and posted in storefronts to inform the community of the actions businesses are taking to keep their customers and their employees safe. You can find all of those checklists here.

We continue to provide guidance, support and information to help businesses navigate the transition into and through Phase 1. JEDCO and the Jefferson Chamber have provided valuable webinars on getting back to business through our Prosper Jefferson series. In fact, we have a webinar coming up this afternoon (don’t miss it)!  We consistently update our website and our social media channels with the latest news and information related to the pandemic, so our businesses can stay informed throughout these challenging times.

Should you have questions or needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please don’t hesitate to reach out. 504.875.3908.
