This campaign will offer support for Lake Norman area’s efforts to ensure safe business acti

seriously. VLN has created a designated landing page for visitors to see a list of local restaurants, hotels, and attractions that have completed the certification. https://www.visitlakenorman.org/about/covid-19-updates/count-on-me-nc/

Businesses are encouraged to display evidence of their certification, such as decals, in highly visible areas and on their website with digital graphics to inform the public of their participation. The Count on Me NC website also provides additional supplemental guidelines and materials for businesses and an option for customers to participate in the program by taking the “Guest Pledge.”

Currently, there are three personnel category training routes offered including Owners and Operators, Front of the House Staff, and Back of the House Staff, and two operations-based training categories, including Cleaning and Disinfecting Surfaces for COVID-19 Management and General Best Practices for COVID-19 Management. After an owner or manager earns a certificate for completing the training course, the business will be listed as a campaign participant on the Count On Me website.
