Chad Warmington, president and CEO of the State Chamber of Oklahoma, joined Gov. Kevin Stitt on Wednesday when he announced his phased plan for safely reopening Oklahoma's economy. The plan, Open Up and Recover Safely (OURS), was developed based on guidelines from the White House and input from an advisory group chaired by Warmington. The advisory group was charged with providing input and feedback on how to safely open Oklahoma businesses.
"Before Oklahomans can begin the climb to economic recovery, we must first safely open Oklahoma back up for business. I was honored to chair this group of respected leaders tasked with making those recommendations to our governor," said Warmington.
With a plan for safely reopening, the State Chamber of Oklahoma, in collaboration with its research foundation, has started to gather the concepts and will devise a strategy to help Oklahoma businesses recover from the economic impacts of COVID-19.
"Full recovery won't be instantaneous. It will be an extensive process requiring calculated and comprehensive policies to champion recovery for all businesses," Warmington said. "The State Chamber is ready to lead this effort. This is who we are. This is what we do."
