Introduction

Although we are currently operating under an active Stay at Home order across the State of Minnesota, State Government leaders are in the process of thinking through what new “social distancing norms” should be once the Stay at Home order is eventually lifted (Should everyone keep wearing masks?  How do we stay 6 feet away from each other in an elevator, etc.)?

Our main goals are to help Minnesotans stay safe & healthy while enabling more social and economic activity, but this is a bit more complicated than it sounds.  This is why we need your help to get the design of these new norms right. 

This survey is designed to identify trends across organizational categories rather than focusing on the views of one organization, so we will anonymize the results as much as possible by removing survey comments that identify specific people or organizations.  

We've spread the survey questions across four pages to help the survey load faster for you.  PLEASE share your thoughts on all the questions - we need your feedback.

Question Title

* 4. Which option best describes the status of your organization? 

Question Title

* 5. How long do you believe your organization will be impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation?

Question Title

* 6. Once the Stay at Home order has been lifted, what norms would you recommend for organizations like yours over the next 3 to 6 months as we all work to “flatten the curve”?
