Research tells us there is a pent-up demand to venture out of home, visit places of business, and resume traveling that is met with a fear of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
That’s why eXplore Lawrence, The Chamber of Lawrence, Downtown Lawrence Inc., and Lawrence Restaurant Association are inviting you to sign the Lawrence Promise. Lawrence Promise is designed to ease those fears and help increase spending in the Lawrence economy. Lawrence Promise is an easily-recognizable and unified message for businesses and organizations to share their commitment to the health and well-being of Lawrence residents, employees, and visitors.
When people see the Lawrence Promise Seal they can rest assured that practices are in place to protect them and their loved ones.
In order to display the Seal, a place of business must sign the Lawrence Promise to follow all federal, state, and local public health mandates. Lawrence Promise businesses are committed to creating transmission barriers, enhancing sanitation, promoting health screening, following industry-specific guidance, and making themselves available to speak with customers about their questions or concerns.
Businesses/organizations who sign the Lawrence Promise will be provided with resources, tools, and tips to help fulfill their promise in addition to special designation on partner websites and recognition on social media.
Keeping our community healthy and safe is a shared responsibility. That’s why there is a Lawrence Promise for individuals too. Individuals who are committed to following the CDC’s recommendations of cleaning their hands often, avoiding close contact with others, covering their mouth and nose when around others, staying home when sick, covering coughs and sneezes, and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces are encouraged to sign the promise.
