#maskupnorthcountry: A collaborative campaign

A Multi Organization Effort to Stress the Importance of following State Safety Guidelines 

In response to the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in the North Country Region, the North Country Chamber of Commerce along with the Clinton County Health Department, Plattsburgh  YMCA and the United Way of the Adirondack Region have created a #maskupnorthcountry social media campaign to reinforce the importance of following state guidelines to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.  

The social media campaign, which kicked off on Wednesday, features pictures and quotes from regional  community leaders, including Assemblyman Billy Jones and Town Supervisor Michael Cashman, stressing  the importance of wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing.  

The group also created a webpage featuring fresh signage for businesses to hang stressing the  importance of face coverings, maintaining safe distances and handwashing. They can be found on northcountrychamber.com by clicking on “Collateral”.  

Garry Douglas, President/CEO of the North Country Chamber of Commerce: “”It’s the simplest thing  we can all keep doing to come through this challenge, and also a key way to support our local  businesses. Higher numbers could bring new restrictions, which none of us want to see happen. So  mask up and maintain safe distances. For yourself, for everyone you meet and for the future of our  businesses.”
