‘ALX Promise’ Program to Help Businesses Safely Reopen

“ALX Promise” program launched in Alexandria, Virginia to help businesses safely reopen as we approach Phase One of the Forward Virginia blueprint.

ALX Promise shield - Alexandria, VirginiaThe Alexandria Health Department (AHD), in partnership with Visit Alexandria and local restaurant and business associations, has launched the “ALX Promise” program to help businesses safely reopen as Northern Virginia approaches Phase One of the Forward Virginia blueprint. The program is designed to train and support businesses as they begin to reopen and expand operations. ALX Promise is a voluntary measure to encourage businesses to adopt COVID-19 safety standards for employees and customers that exceed the minimum rules required by law.

Each business that takes part in the ALX Promise program will:

  • Participate in training with an AHD Environmental Health Specialist on state requirements to reopen.
  • Train all employees on the safety measures needed for safe reopening.
  • Submit a completed checklist, training record and pledge commitment to ensure the safety of employees and staff.
  • Agree to follow all future applicable health guidance as Northern Virginia enters new phases of reopening.

Businesses that successfully complete the program will be awarded the ALX Promise Shield to display on their windows and websites, to show customers they are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment and using the highest safety standards.

For more information, or to sign up a business, visit the ALX Promise webpage.
