Take the Fairfax City ReConnected Pledge!
The Fairfax City Economic Development Office launched a new initiative today to reconnect city businesses with the community. Business owners are invited to take the Fairfax City ReConnected Pledge, a voluntary initiative that demonstrates their commitment to adhering to the latest COVID-19 safety precautions. Participants will receive a “Let’s Get ReConnected” decal to display in their window, which will give their customers confide ReConnected that their place of business is following all public health requirements.
The Pledge encourages businesses citywide to implement several protocols that can reduce coronavirus transmission and ensure the health and safety of patrons, such as:
- Requiring the use of face coverings by employees and customers
- Communicating safety protocols and training to managers and staff
- Working only when healthy
- Promoting social distancing and limiting capacity
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently and
- Adhering to specific business sector health and safety requirements by the Virginia Department of Health
The Pledge is a simple form that can be completed in under a minute. Several businesses have already made the Pledge. “Let’s Get ReConnected” decals will be distributed to participants beginning the week of Monday, June 22. More details about the program are available on the Fairfax City ReConnected Pledge website.
