Meade County Area Chamber of Commerce and Meade County Tourism in Brandenburg, KY has been recognized as a Platinum COVID Stops Here workplace for achieving a 100% vaccination rate in their administrative staff.
The COVID Stops Here campaign recognizes Kentucky workplaces that have achieved widespread vaccination against COVID-19. Organizations that have achieved at least a 70% vaccination rate are eligible to receive a designation.
It is critical that Kentuckians work together to stop the spread of coronavirus — including the dangerous new Delta variant. Vaccination is the best way to stop COVID-19.
“As community leaders, and the largest event coordinators in Meade County we wanted to ensure the safety of everyone around us. We also wanted to create a working environment where our staff feel safe and normal going into the future.” Annie Hamilton, Executive Director, Meade County Area Chamber of Commerce and Meade County Tourism.
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce developed the COVID Stops Here campaign as a way to celebrate workplaces that are leading the fight to stop COVID-19 — and to encourage more organizations to join their ranks.
“The COVID-19 vaccine is Kentucky’s pathway to recovery. Meade County Area Chamber of Commerce and Meade County Tourism is helping set the bar for vaccination in Kentucky by achieving Platinum COVID Stops Here status — meaning 100% of their employees are now vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a great achievement and we thank them for helping our state stop this dangerous virus,” said Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts. “Employers are playing a very important as we work to encourage vaccination in Kentucky.
