Dear Valued Member:
This week, the Maine State Chamber of Commerce launched a public awareness campaign, ‘This is ME Counting on You.’ With Maine’s local and regional chambers, we are encouraging all Mainers to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Maine employers are doing their part. We are counting on each and every Maine individual to also act safely and responsibly so Maine reopens successfully, we can all get back to business, Maine people can get back to work, and Maine’s economic recovery can begin.
As part of the campaign, we have launched a website, www.MEcountingonYou.org, providing resources and messaging encouraging people to follow recommended health and safety guidelines and precautions, such as wearing a mask and gloves and practicing social distancing. Printable files featuring the initiative’s logo and messages are on the site’s ‘Resources’ page for employers to consider placing in their establishments to provide reminders for employees, customers, and visitors. Also on the website is a ‘virtual bumper sticker’ linking to www.MEcountingonYou.org for organizations to place on their websites if they wish.
Additionally, we have produced a PSA that is expected to begin airing on cable television soon. We hope you will like and follow the initiative on Facebook, too, and consider using the hashtag #MECountingOnYou to share what your organization and employees are doing related to safety practices related to COVID-19.
We believe ‘This is ME Counting on You’ will serve as an effective reminder to all Maine people that each of us has an important role to play in defeating COVID-19. We are all in this together. Following recommended health and safety guidelines and precautions is the best way we can support one another, our communities, and you, Maine’s employers and your employees.
Please let us know if you have questions or would like more information.
This is ME counting on You,
Dana F. Connors President & CEO Maine State Chamber of Commerce
