If you visit any local stores or restaurants in the days and weeks to come, you’ll probably start noticing some new signs or posters promoting Whatcom County’s new “Safer. Stronger. Together.” campaign.
Safer. Stronger. Together.
The “Safer. Stronger. Together.” campaign supports our local businesses to reopen safely. The campaign brings businesses together to learn and problem-solve the best ways to follow public health guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Participating businesses have pledged to follow health and safety guidelines, so you know they are doing their part to keep you safe.
Look for stickers and informational posters placed in storefronts and on websites, and thank your local business and non-profit partners for doing their best to protect us all!
You can find campaign materials, additional resources, and more information at www.whatcomtogether.org.
The “Safer. Stronger. Together.” campaign was produced through a partnership between the Whatcom County Health Department and the Port of Bellingham’s Regional Economic Partnership, in collaboration with Chambers of Commerce, Whatcom County Tourism, and Downtown Business Partnerships. It’s a part of the work of the COVID-19 Employer Support Task Force.
To keep one another safe, continue to keep up healthy habits, like wearing a mask and washing hands frequently when you are out and about. We can maintain a healthy, safe, and welcoming environment while reopening our economy and supporting our local businesses.
