The Indiana State Bar Association is offering attorneys and law firms suggestions on reopening their practices amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Much of the state outside of Marion, Lake, Cass and Monroe counties is no longer under stay-at-home orders after Gov. Eric Holcomb eased statewide public health emergency orders earlier this month in favor of a phased-in reopening plan

The ISBA’s COVID-19 Recovery Task Force has published “Reopening Your Practice: Recommendations from the Indiana State Bar Association,” which is available online here.

The nine-page document includes general guidance it prefaces as “a toolkit that can be used as much or as little as is practicable” for practices “to develop an individualized plan that is responsible, yet reasonable.”

The guidance includes recommended steps for firms on readiness essentials, preparing the workplace, preparing the workforce, controlling access points, creating a social distancing plan, consideration for when to return to offices and more.

ISBA was among the nonprofits Holcomb asked to recommend guidelines to its members.
