(Waukesha, WI)- Today, Waukesha County is announcing new business partners in the fight against COVID-19 through engagement in the “Stay Safe to Stay Open” campaign. The campaign is a unified approach to promote the actions businesses and residents can take to mitigate the spread of the virus as the economy and community slowly reopen.
“As more people return to their offices or resume receiving in-person business services, it’s important to remember that even though the virus is still in our community, we can work together to protect each other,” said Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. “The engagement of our business community, in addition to our local chambers of commerce, is vital to avoid COVID-19 spikes in our county.”

In addition to meeting industry-specific standards, these partners will share simple but essential health safety messages with their employees and customers. The new campaign partners are:

- Protect the vulnerable
