This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. The Salt Lake Chamber along with the Utah Department of Health is pleased to announce the launch of a statewide campaign to effectively guide the reactivation of Utah’s economy as together we work to mitigate effects of the coronavirus.
The campaign is called “Stay Safe to Stay Open,” and it offers guidelines that restaurants, retail stores, and other commercial establishments will follow to help protect consumers and employees from coming into contact with the coronavirus.
All businesses participating in the campaign will be clearly identified by attractive signage displayed in their windows, certifying that they have taken a pledge to follow state health guidelines to:
- Conduct temperature checks before work and stay home when a team member becomes sick;
- Wash hands frequently and avoid touching face and eyes;
- Practice physical distancing including wearing face coverings in close common areas;
- Learn about high-risk groups and help protect them;
- Cover mouths when coughing or sneezing;
- Clean high touch surfaces frequently; and,
- Follow public health guidance.
All participating businesses will be included in an easily searchable online database at stayopenutah.com, and consumers will be encouraged to look for businesses that have taken the pledge and are displaying the official campaign signage.
To learn more, please go to stayopenutah.com. That’s stayopenutah.com. We are all in this together, and with your involvement, Utah will come back from the economic effects of the coronavirus stronger than ever.
