Issue Brief: Restarting America

How a dynamic policy framework and digital toolkit can help reopen society.

While work continues on the front lines of the healthcare system to address the COVID-19 pandemic, attention is also focused on what happens on the other side of the "curve."  Specifically, public policymakers, government leaders, and medical professionals are beginning to consider how we restart society.

This issue brief:

  • Offers a summary of potential considerations
  • Highlights components of a flexible, risk-based public policy framework
  • Describes a technical solution KPMG is developing that would enable implementation of an approach approved by appropriate officials
  • Provides summaries of potential applications of both the policy framework and technical solution.
A flexible, risk based approach, supported by a modern technology solution, provides potential for an option to effectively and safely reopen society while continuing to control the threat posed by the virus.
