To protect the business community and prevent the spread of COVID-19, Fairfax City’s Economic Development Office and Economic Development Authority (EDA), will provide City businesses with Fairfax City ReConnected Safety Kits.
Part of the Fairfax City ReConnected program, these free kits will include essential supplies needed to serve customers and visitors while ensuring employees' safety. Each kit contains: 50 cloth face coverings; four 32-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer; two touch-free thermometers; Fairfax City ReConnected Pledge information; and business-sector guidelines.
Approximately 100 kits are now available; they’re funded via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. They’ll be distributed first-come, first-served. To obtain one, businesses must register at https://fairfaxcityconnected.com/fairfaxcityreconnected/#kits.
“Our businesses represent an integral part of Fairfax City's community,” said EDA Chairman Jeff Hermann. “We must do everything within our power to not only support them, but ensure they have access to protective supplies.”
“The primary goal of these kits is to help businesses continue to stay open safely, while adopting new and necessary measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” explained Economic Development Assistant Director Danette Nguyen. “They, along with our Fairfax City ReConnected programs, provide businesses with the essential tools, information and resources to continue operating, while protecting public health.”
