The city rolled out a new initiative for residents and businesses for the long haul. The Covid recovery campaign is a game plan for moving forward called READY. STEADY. BOCA! Here’s where to take the pledge https://www.myboca.us/1867/Ready-Steady-Boca And disclosure: Boca Voice is among businesses that already signed up.
Mayor Scott Singer introduced the initiative at his recent presentation to more than
300 Boca Raton Chamber business and community members. “The response to COVID-19 will require a long-term commitment from the community,” Singer said in the announcement. “The campaign is meant to bring our residents and businesses together through the recovery period and send a message to our visitors that we are prepared, and our city is safe.”
Community partners such as the Boca Raton Airport Authority, Boca Raton Innovation Campus, Baptist Health South Florida – Boca Raton Regional Hospital and the Chamber have pledged their commitment.
“As with all challenges we face, we achieve greater success if we face them together,” Troy McLellan, Chamber president and CEO said in the announcement. The campaign “reminds residents, businesses and visitors about responsible safety precautions as the economy continues to revive itself under challenging restrictions in place due to this unprecedented time.”
To bring additional awareness to this city-wide initiative, the city will use digital and social media and a digital toolkit for community businesses to access at the link above. Business that sign the pledge will have a window decal sticker with a QR coed that patrons can scan to learn more about the initiative and what it means, according to the city.
“We felt the timing was right as many businesses have been successful with their reopening plans and we want that careful, steady approach to continue as more businesses reopen and school resumes,” said a city spokeperson. “READY. STEADY. BOCA! will serve as a reminder to balance caution with action. It emphasizes safety, and social responsibility as we navigate the phased reopenings together.”
