COVID-19: Keep COVID in Check
Customers make decisions about where they shop or eat when they understand who is following recommended guidelines to keep them healthy and safe. We know that downtown businesses should be at the top of the list!
Downtown Sacramento Partnership has developed Keep COVID in Check materials to help you communicate your commitment to keeping downtown healthy and safe. This campaign is designed to give customers confidence that your business, and downtown as a whole, is following guidelines outlined by state and local authorities, and putting employee and customer health first.
Businesses located in the 66-block district managed by Downtown Sacramento Partnership that take the pledge to keep COVID in check are eligible to receive FREE window signage and digital tools to support marketing and outreach. These tools and assets to build awareness of the measures you are taking to make downtown a healthy and safe place to eat, shop, work and visit. We will also list your business with the “healthy and safe” designation on GoDowntownSac.com/safe.
Keeping COVID in check is as easy as 1-2-3:
- Step 1: Pledge to follow all industry and local guidelines.
- Step 2: Display “Keeping COVID in Check” materials.
- Step 3: Continue to update protocols and procedures as new guidance is issued from Federal, State, County and City of Sacramento authorities.
