A How-To Guide for Safer Operations

Ideas & Resources 

Our team at Visit St. Pete/Clearwater has compiled a list of suggestions on how to welcome visitors responsibly while also safeguarding employees during Covid-19. This information has been compiled after reviewing changes that businesses across the U.S. are making to adapt to the pandemic. We know that not all of these changes or modifications are achievable for every business, but seeing what other businesses are doing can help us understand what might be possible or necessary.
