Members of the Lexington Chamber and Visitors Center along with the Columbia Chamber have created a pledge for businesses to reopen responsibly amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Business owners who take the pledge declare that they will be taking steps based upon the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and DHEC to promote social distancing, limit capacity, monitor the health of employees, clean frequently, encourage face covering, and hand sanitizing.
When business representatives take the pledge at lexingtonsc.org, they will receive a poster to place throughout their store
Lexington Chamber President and CEO Otis Rawl said he has confidence in the local businesses and their efforts. "In many ways, businesses have been operating with many of the guidelines in place regarding sanitation and social distancing. This pledge reiterates their commitment to the public and their employees," he said.
The Lexington Chamber will have posters available at its location, and will be able to deliver posters to local businesses that pledge to reopen responsibly.
