(Fort Leonard Wood)–The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Pulaski County Health Center and Home Health Agency, Pulaski County, the Sustainable Ozarks Partnership, and the cities of St. Robert and Waynesville to install a new initiative aimed at protecting consumers and employees while businesses attempt to safely reopen.
The Safe and Smart Pledge is a voluntary gesture, according to the chamber’s executive director, Cecilia Murray, but participation is highly encouraged for all businesses in the county.
“We want people to feel comfortable to start coming out to eat, to shop and to do business within the local community,” she said. “We’re asking all businesses and organizations within Pulaski County – not just Chamber members – to complete the survey that we have online.” The Chamber’s Office Manager Leanna Weathers says this is a voluntary gesture and way for businesses to inform customers that actions have been taken to protect employee health, prevent crowds, increase sanitation and ensure social distancing –building trust between consumers and the community’s businesses.

To take the survey and receive a Safe and Smart sign to display, go to the chamber’s website, or call 336-5121.
