CDC’S Top Considerations for Reopening Your Office

Create a COVID-19 Workplace Health and Safety Plan

A written policy provides workers a sense of comfort knowing that the business owner has assessed the physical structure to see if it’s ready for occupancy and provides guidance on who should return to work and how they should act once there.

The plan should address:

  • Mechanical and life safety systems
  • Any hazards that could have arisen with a prolonged shutdown such as mold growth, pests or stagnant water
  • Ways to increase circulation of outdoor air and to increase total airflow supply to occupied spaces
  • Water systems safety
  • Hazard identification that could increase risks of COVID-19 transmission
  • Communication plans for how to act in common areas and meeting rooms
  • Seats, furniture and workstation placement and/or transparent shields installation that helps maintain social distancing
  • Signage, tape marks or other visual cues to encourage distancing
  • Replacement of high-touch communal items with pre-packaged, single-serving items
  • Encouraging workers to take responsibility to stay home if sick or exposed to COVID-19
  • Staggered shifts, start and break times to reduce number of employees in common areas
  • Policies for visitors such as cloth face coverings and/or notification of visit
  • Increased disinfection rotation for high-touch surfaces

Onward Reserve Opens New Location in Raleigh after COVID-19 Delays

Lifestyle Brand Opens in Cameron Village with “Celebrate Summer” Giveaway


RALEIGH, N.C. (July 1, 2020) – Onward Reserve, a specialty men’s apparel and lifestyle brand, today announced the opening of its newest retail location at Cameron Village. This will be the 12th retail store for the Atlanta-based brand, which can also be found online and in partner retailers across the country. Onward Reserve Raleigh is located at 404 Daniels Street, near the intersection of Clark Avenue.

To commemorate the Raleigh opening, Onward Reserve is holding a “Celebrate Summer” giveaway. Any customer who shops in-store grand opening week (July 1 – 8, 2020) or enters the giveaway online will be entered to win a “Summer Essentials” gift basket from Onward Reserve.

The prize includes a $250 gift card to Onward Reserve, the brand’s signature Ranch Water cocktail cups and ingredients (Topo Chico and limes), an Onward Reserve North Carolina trucker hat, Onward Reserve beach towel, new Raleigh tee and Onward Reserve koozie. The giveaway can be entered by visiting the website here.

Onward Reserve, which was founded in 2012 by T.J. Callaway when he was just 26 years old, offers apparel ranging from tees featuring original works of art by accomplished artists, to tailored and performance sportswear, accessories, and footwear. Onward Reserve also boasts a curated selection of distinctive gifts, including barware, books and small leather goods.

“Creating authentic moments with family and friends is the inspiration behind Onward Reserve,” said T.J. Callaway, founder and CEO of Onward Reserve. “We already have a strong customer base online in the Triangle area and are thrilled to join the community in Cameron Village and for people to experience the Onward Reserve brand in-person.”

Onward Reserve partnered with celebrated local artist Anna Ball Hodge to help create an original painting of Raleigh landmarks to be featured on the back of the new Onward Reserve Raleigh tee. The scene celebrates the vibrancy of the city and the painting hangs prominently in the store.

Onward Reserve Raleigh will be managed by Raleigh native and NC State grad, Rachel Ferraguto. The store was originally scheduled to open in early April but was delayed due to COVID-19.

“I’m excited to introduce Onward Reserve to the Raleigh market, especially as it’s more important than ever to ‘shop small,’” said Ferraguto. “Our store is just up the street from my alma mater, so I can’t wait to be an active member of the NC State and larger Raleigh communities.”

Doors will open at 10 am on Wednesday, July 1, following the state guidelines for Phase Two of reopening, practicing social distancing measures in-store and adhering to CDC guidelines for sanitation measures. If preferred, customers may call ahead for curbside service and private shopping appointments are also available.

“In today’s climate, we want to meet customers where they are, serving them however they feel most comfortable to allow them to safely shop with us,” continued Ferraguto.

Onward Reserve Raleigh will be open 10 a.m. to 7 pm., Monday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. A surprise gift with purchase will also be given to customers who shop in-store during the two weeks of being open.

“Despite recent challenges, our continued growth online and expansion into Raleigh underscores that customers are looking for a brand that not only provides quality products but also an authentic and personal experience,” said Callaway. “We’re excited to celebrate our opening with the Raleigh community.”
