BRAC’s April 17 COVID-19 Brief: Preliminary framework for reopening the economy

The Louisiana economy has seen job losses top 300,000 with thousands of businesses shuttered entirely. No industry sector is unaffected. As the April 30 expiration of the current Stay-at-Home order approaches, BRAC – in partnership with executives across a broad array of industries and business organizations from around the state – is releasing a preliminary framework for Louisiana’s economic recovery.


The executive summary precedes next week’s release of a full commentary, and is meant to serve as a start to the conversation of how the state can safely and gradually reopen the economy, predicated upon the implementation of defined and accepted public safety procedures.

Both the executive summary and full document will be shared with Governor Edwards’ administration, with the commitment of continued collaboration and support of the Resilient Louisiana Commission as it begins its work to strengthen sectors of the economy and recommend resilient return-to-work practices.
