How you can help

By following a few guidelines and best practices, you can create a safer, healthier environment for everyone. When you take the “I’m In, Lake County!” pledge, you acknowledge that you are willing to:

  • Wear a cloth face-covering like a mask or scarf.
  • Wait your turn by maintaining six feet of physical distance from others
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.
  • Stay home if you have been recently exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Be patient and kind to staff and other guests, as we all adjust to a new way of doing things.

How our businesses help

While Minnesota already has established health and safety guidelines, “I’m In, Lake County!” businesses have endured additional training and implemented new procedures due to the COVID-19 circumstances.

All “I’m In, Lake County!” businesses have pledged to:

  • Ensure that staff wears cloth face coverings if they cannot keep six feet apart.
  • Ensure safe sanitation practices are followed.
  • Facilitate health checks to all staff prior to shift start.
  • Make sure indoor and outdoor seating meets all physical distancing guidelines.
  • Provide hand sanitizer or handwashing stations at all entrances.
  • Clean and sanitize common areas, bathrooms and high-touch surfaces regularly using the CDC recommendations.
  • Clean and sanitize all tables and hard surfaces after every use.
  • Clean settings, utensils, menus and condiments after every use or provide single-use options.
