BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights Business and Civic in partnership with TAPinto Berkeley Heights has launched its latest strategy for making customers feel safer as they venture out to Berkeley Heights businesses during the pandemic.

The Berkeley Heights Cares campaign provides business owners the opportunity to show they agree to stick with the latest health guidelines. Those include daily temperature checks for workers and sending them home when they are sick, wearing face masks on the job, stepped-up hand washing and sanitizing of commonly touched surfaces.

Posters have been placed in storefront windows to prove the business has taken the Berkeley Heights Cares pledge. The Berkeley Heights Cares pledge also means that compliance with state and local safety guidelines have been met.

“It’s one thing for a business to open its doors,” said Dr. Patrick Smith, Chair of BHB&C. “It’s another thing for the consumer to feel confident in walking through those doors.” The program, which has been ramping up behind the scenes, is viewed as a business-targeted way of reassuring customers and employees who remain wary of infection. 

Now, it's your turn! Take the Berkeley Heights Cares Pledge to ensure the safety of the community and keep Berkeley Heights businesses open. All who sign the pledge will be entered into virtual drawings to win gift cards to Berkeley Heights businesses.
