The purpose of this Taskforce is to develop a plan to restart our local economy in the correct way. Now is the time to look ahead to how Lakeland will recover and re-imagine our future. A diverse group of local leaders were selected to help unite businesses and the community around common objectives. Creating a shared vision for balancing the right health and safety outcomes with the right restart is vital. A thoughtful and deliberate strategy that restarts the economy with safety at its core will be the key to success.

The Taskforce designed Consumer Choices to be an easy to read Chart & Color Scheme, which identifies three different levels of safety choices any given business has chosen to use. This chart makes it possible for customers to know the business’ precaution level before they arrive. Three different precaution levels exist (Green, Blue & Magenta) which follow healthcare guidelines. Green represents “Primary Precautions,” Blue represents “Increased Precautions,” and Magenta represents “Comprehensive Precautions.”
