FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Hotels, tourist attractions, restaurants, and businesses throughout Greater Fort Lauderdale and Broward County are taking Visit Lauderdale’s Safe + Clean Pledge.
The pledge provides a unified message that health and safety standards and protections against the spread of COVID-19 are a top priority as visitors arrive for the summer vacation season.
Safe + Clean Pledge signs are posted at area businesses and on listings for hotels, attractions, and restaurants at sunny.org.
“These are the new safety measures we are all looking for,” said Visit Lauderdale president and CEO Stacy Ritter. “We view the pledge as the local industry standard, but also encourage and celebrate the extra effort many businesses have already taken to assure everyone that health and safety is priority one.”
The Safe + Clean Pledge was developed by Visit Lauderdale, and works together with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance’s Supporters of Broward (SOB) campaign. It is in line with standards established by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association (FRLA) and has the support of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
Those participating in The Safe + Clean Pledge have promised to: follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cleaning protocols; wear masks; provide hand sanitizer; practice social distancing; train staff how to be safe and clean; and work toward adopting contactless payment.
