Recently Announced Tennessee Pledge and Good to Go Initiatives

As businesses continue to navigate the reopening process and newly enacted safety protocols, we want you to be aware of two initiatives recently launched by the State of Tennessee, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. and Vanderbilt Health. Following safety guidelines will help protect all Middle Tennesseans.

Good to Go

Good to Go is a free program that provides Nashville-area businesses with extra resources and access to public health experts. Created in partnership with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, Ryman Hospitality Properties and Vanderbilt Health, the Good to Go program is a voluntary program that asks Nashville businesses to commit to following guidance from the Metro Public Health Department (MPHD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Good to Go provides businesses with access to toolkits, training modules and general support to help carry out recommendations in a way that is authentic to Music City. Click here to register for the introductory webinar TOMORROW, May 29, at 11 a.m. Click here to learn more about the Good to Go program.

Tennessee Pledge

The Tennessee Pledge is a plan to help Tennesseans return to work in a safe environment, restore their livelihoods and reboot Tennessee’s economy. Created in partnership with Gov. Bill Lee, the Unified Command Group (UCG), Tennessee’s Economic Recovery Group (ERG), health care experts and local partners, the Tennessee Pledge includes specific recommendations and guidelines to help businesses reopen responsibly without the burden of heavy mandates. The Tennessee Pledge asks businesses to provide safe working conditions that protect both employees and consumers, as well as asks employees and consumers to commit to protecting themselves and others to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Click here to learn more about the Tennessee Pledge and view business guidelines and a toolkit for reopening.

We hope these new initiatives help our members feel confident and secure during the reopening process. As always, we want to be a resource for our members. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our staff members if you have questions or need further guidance.
