Door County's Commitment to Cleanliness & Safety
Door County's commitment to cleanliness and safety initiative offers guidance for local businesses that are serious about the safety of residents and visitors. In return for making a commitment to follow these guidelines outlined by Door County Medical Center and Door County Public Health, businesses are able to use the program logo and a window cling to show they are committed to cleanliness and safety in Door County. Participation is free and open to all Door County businesses and organizations, and no sign-up is required. Use these guidelines to help educate your leaders, employees, and customers on best practices around infection prevention.
The commitment to cleanliness and safety logo is available for participating businesses in JPG, PNG, TIF and EPS format. Click on the logo to access the different file types. Free window clings are available at the Door County Welcome Center and through local community business associations.
