What can residents do?
Medical evidence shows that following safety guidelines such as wearing a face covering and practicing physical distancing around others can greatly reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. When you're out in public and potentially around others who are at greater risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19, the personal safety decisions you make aren't just limited to you — they impact those around you, too.
What can businesses do?
As businesses are cleared to reopen, business owners and employees can join the City of Columbia's efforts to help patrons remain safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. A key part of the program is the Resilient Columbia Pledge, which businesses can sign to show their commitment to following guidelines.
