According to the Idaho Rebounds website, employees can return to work in phases if social distancing, personal protections and sanitation is feasible. Employees who are considered vulnerable should remain in self-quarantine and special accommodations for those employees should be made in the workplace if they are unable to work form home. All businesses currently open should continue following protocol.
