Jefferson, Texas – As Texas begins to re-open for business, County Judge Leward J. LaFleur takes the lead with proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of Marion County Residents and visitors are top priority.
“Life has changed since the Coronavirus. Our residents and visitors need to feel safe and secure in Marion County. With help from Governor Abbott’s resources, we developed a customized program, the C.L.E.A.N. Initiative, to promote a safe and healthy environment in Marion County,” stated Judge LaFleur.
The C.L.E.A.N. Initiative is a voluntary checklist for Marion County businesses to adopt as Texas begins to re-open under the guidance of Governor Abbott.
The 5 letter acronym stands for:
C – Cover your mouth and nose with mask especially when sick
L – Learn proper hygiene, and how germs are spread
E – Eliminate Germs Through Wash Stations and/or Readily Available Hand Sanitizer
A – Awareness of Self Health and How to Prevent the Spread of Germs
N – New Guidelines for Dealing with Future Viruses/Epidemics
“As American citizens our freedom comes with responsibility. The people can do far more than any government is capable of. That is why our office is empowering the people of Marion County with the C.L.E.A.N. Initiative. Expectations are greater than ever before, and as such we must be cleaner than ever before. This is a team effort, and I urge all businesses to participate,” said LaFleur.
