LONG BEACH- The City of Long Beach June 11, launched SafeBiz, a web-interface which allows businesses, which may open according to the safer-at-home order to self-certify that they are committed to re-opening their business safely.
SafeBiz guides business owners through a checklist of safety measures required by the safer-at-home order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The order Appendix A: Physical Distancing Protocol includes measures to protect employee health, to keep crowds from gathering, to keep people at least six feet apart and prevent unnecessary contact, and to increase sanitation measures to support a safe environment for patrons. Businesses must implement all applicable measures, or be prepared to explain why measures that are not implemented are not applicable to the business. If all questions are answered appropriately, a certificate will be automatically generated upon completion of the self-assessment for the business to print and post in a visible place along with a posting of a Physical Distancing Protocol.
Long Beach Code Enforcement staff will periodically review self-certification entries to ensure they are valid and will use the database to conduct spot checks of businesses to verify compliance.
Residents may report violations and non-compliant businesses by calling 562-570-2633 or emailing CETaskForce@LongBeach.gov.
