Today is the day, life attempts to return back to some sort of new normal.

One of the major things changing is restaurants finally getting to serve customers in-person again. But I can't lie, I don't think I'll be going out to eat anytime soon. I'm too nervous, and it turns out a lot of people are. We talked to John Groh from the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau about why this pledge is so important and it's because most people don't feel safe going out to eat right now.

That's why the "Clean Hands, Open Doors" pledge was put in place, to make the public feel a little more at ease when they go back to enjoying every day life.

"Clean Hands, Open Doors" consists of a pledge to follow a set of safety guidelines that make customers feel more confident to dine-in. Businesses will receive a logo to attach to their doors to show that they have pledged to keep their businesses safe.

According to WTVO -

The pledge says businesses will require face coverings, clean hands, sanitization, social distancing, wellness checks, training and protocols, and following public health guidelines.

Businesses can take the pledge HERE. You can also use that link to learn what businesses have taken the pledge.
