How do businesses communicate their compliance with public health recommendations to keep customers and guests safe?

What responsibility do customers and guests have in following safety precautions when they patronize a local business?

Visit Buffalo Niagara is working with Erie County’s hospitality and tourism organizations, communicating a shared commitment to safety in accordance with guidelines and protocols set forth by the Center for Disease Control, the New York State and Erie County Departments of Health, and guidelines and protocols as set forth by our respective industries.

The Buffalo Cares: Stay Safe Pledge is a shared commitment to take necessary precautions for everyone to stay safe while following recommended health guidelines.
