As COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift in many states, many retailers are planning for their full-scale reopenings. As this happens, sites that have been either completely closed or only open for limited use will begin being fully utilized again, often with brand new requirements.

We've put together the below toolkit to help make this transition easier for you and your team

DWM Comprehensive Facilities Solutions put together the following checklist to make the reopening process easier for facilities managers and their teams.

1. Rekey Locks & Update Security System Codes 
The same staff may not be returning to work after COVID, be sure to protect your locations.

2. Verify HVAC PMs Were Completed
With restrictions being put in place at the same time many HVAC PMs were scheduled, there's a chance crucial pre-summer PMs were missed.

3. Check Light Bulbs and Ballast
Areas of many locations have been largely unoccupied for months, ensure all lights are in working order to give your stores a clean, bright look for customers re-entering for the first time. 

4. Verify Reactive or Missed PMs for Pest Control
With restrictions being put in place at the same time many Pest Control PMs were scheduled, there's a chance crucial pre-summer PMs were missed.
