Local businesses sign pledge to be COVID safe
OKANOGAN – Okanogan County Public Health is excited to announce the launch of the Business Pledge Program. This voluntary program supports businesses in the county who commit to operating in a COVID safe way. The nine-point voluntary pledge is a public commitment that businesses will keep customers and the community safe by abiding by masking policies, supporting employees who are sick, self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms, and so on. Businesses who sign the pledge will be listed on the Okanogan County Public Health COVID-19 websites (https://okanogancountycovid19.org/business-pledge/ and https://spanish.okanogancountycovid19.org/business-pledge/) and will receive a decal to place in their storefront to show they have taken the pledge. Businesses who signed the pledge will be listed on the website beginning on October 1, 2020.
Please visit the ‘COVID Safe, Because We Care’ business pledge website to learn more about the pledge, view the logo, and share this exciting program with your local businesses.
