“STAY SAFE TO STAY OPEN” STATEWIDE MOBILE TOUR IN WASATCH COUNTY

Business community encouraged to take pledge to follow guidelines from Utah Department of Health

The Heber Valley Chamber has helped to promote the next phase of the “Stay Safe to Stay Open” campaign in Wasatch County, and to share the message of public health best practices that businesses can sign-on to follow. Those businesses that join the effort receive digital and physical collateral including a seal of approval they can display to their customers.

“The strength of our chamber members is that we’re all on the same team. By taking the ‘Stay Safe to Stay Open’ pledge our businesses are showing that we are willing to do what it takes to keep people safe and our economy going. And like a great team we all have a part to play in keeping our community thriving and safe.” – Dallin Koecher, Executive Director of Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce

The statewide campaign aims to raise consumer confidence and instill a culture of safety throughout the workplace so businesses can remain safe and open. Business owners, managers, and employees who follow the seven basic public health best practices can take the pledge and have their business showcased in a Stay Safe to Stay Open directory. This directory will serve as a type of Angie’s List for companies who commit to remain safe and open.

“Getting the ‘Stay Safe to Stay Open’ message out to our community is essential. It shows that our businesses are committed to protecting their customers, employees and staying open to keep our economy strong.”-Heber City Mayor Kelleen Potter

The Stay Safe to Stay Open campaign was launched by the Utah Department of Health and promoted through the Heber Valley Chamber. Distribution partners include local chambers throughout the state, as well as partnerships with Salt Lake Chamber, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the World Trade Center, the Suazo Business Center, the Downtown Alliance, Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah, the Utah Retail Merchants and Utah Food Associations, and the Utah Safety Council.
