The Association of Washington Business (AWB) in partnership with the State of Washington has established a AWB Rebound and Recovery website ( to help Washington businesses reopen smoothly.

The website has two main lines of effort:

  1. Reopening Tool Kit: AWB has developed customizable materials to support a business’ reopening by helping to communicate new COVID-19 requirements with your employees and customers. According to AWB, these materials aim to help businesses:
  • Share personalized messages with your employees about new requirements for employees and customers who are entering your facility.
  • Post signs in your workplace to inform employees about new requirements and safety guidelines in place.
  • Post signs around your facility to inform customers about requirements in place at your business and help them follow the guidance.
  • Share messages on your social media platforms to inform customers about what they can expect when they come to visit your facility.
  1. PPE Marketplace: The website also links to an online Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) “marketplace” to connect businesses with PPE suppliers to help you get ready to safely welcome back employees and customers.
