​Public Health’s COVID-SAFE Certification Program Is Open for Businesses 

8/2/2022
As part of its continued efforts to provide education and support for businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) developed the COVID-SAFE training and certification program 

Free to Mecklenburg County businesses, the online training provides information about COVID-19 and guidance on COVID-19 safety (physical distancing, masking and cleaning), vaccination and employee health. Upon completion of the training, participants receive the following:  

  • A personalized certificate and window cling with the COVID-SAFE Business logo for display 
  • An example Employee Health Policy for use with employees 
  • COVID-19 safety posters for display 
  • Monthly COVID-19 updates from MCPH 
 
“When local and State COVID mandates ended, our business community was looking for a way to show that they still prioritized the health and safety of their employees and patrons and keep up with the latest on COVID-19,” said Dr. Raynard Washington, MCPH Director. “Our COVID team took on the challenge not only to educate businesses, but to also create an opportunity for ongoing communication about health and safety tools available for the business community.” 
 
Business owners/managers who complete the online training will be able to implement COVID-19 safety practices in their business and post the certificate, window cling and COVID-19 safety posters in view of employees and patrons. 
 
Details and links to register for the program are available on the County’s COVID-19 webpage.
