COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Required for Minnesota Farms and Markets

Minnesota Department of Agriculture announced that by June 29, 2020, all critical sector businesses, including all farms and farmers’ markets, are required to develop and implement a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan that complies with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) COVID-19 guidelines and OSHA standards. The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) has created a preparedness plan template that includes all required plan components and is available in Hmong, Somali, and Spanish. Farms may use other templates, such as the produce farm-specific plan from the University of Minnesota Extension, if all components outlined in the DLI template are addressed.
