The Kansas business community’s priority is ensuring its employees are safe and healthy while working to provide the much-needed support, services and products during this global crisis.
At some point, possibly soon, the health crisis will subside to the point where business and society can begin to reopen. To ensure Kansas is ready, state and local government officials and business leaders should work together to develop specific health metrics and safety criteria that when met, will give businesses, their employees and citizens confidence in the safety of their workplaces.
Kansas was one of the last states to fully recover from the 2008-09 recession. The economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis will have long-term consequences. The Kansas Chamber’s Relief and Recovery Agenda provides a path to speed our state’s recovery.
