New Guidance on Reopening Horticulture Businesses by Region - as of 5/14/20

Please read even if you are already open!


Phase One includes Agriculture – which includes Greenhouse, Nursery and Floriculture Production. It also includes delivery, curbside, and in-store pickup service only for Florists and Lawn and Garden Equipment and Supplies Stores.

** If you have both types of operations, the safety plan is the same

but read both interim guidance documents as there may be differences**


All businesses, including essential businesses, must develop a COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan – even if you have already been open!
