Safer Together, Greater Together Pledge
Over 470 local businesses have now taken the Safer Together, Greater Together Pledge since early June, sending a cohesive message to residents and visitors that our hotels, restaurants, attractions and retail shops are upholding the latest standards established by the State of California, Riverside County and their respective industries to ensure the safety of all.
All businesses that take the pledge commit to instituting these core safety practices:
• Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan
• Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them
• Implement individual control measures and screenings
• Implement disinfecting protocols
• Implement physical distancing guidelines
• Stay informed of the latest best practices and share learned knowledge with your industry partners
Our tourism partners making the pledge also commit to being transparent and sharing their safety protocols and procedures with the consumer. They will recognize their commitment by showing the pledge badge on their websites and with social media posts.
The CVB is adding the pledge badge to listings on visitgreaterpalmsprings.com for the businesses that have taken the pledge. Businesses can also access a helpful toolkit with resources for sharing their commitment with their customers and staff.
You can view our Partner Pledge website HERE and our consumer-facing Pledge site HERE.
The CVB is maintaining a coronavirus resources page for local partners with links to the latest State and County orders as well as relevant information for small businesses, affected workers, and those looking for volunteer opportunities.

The CVB has also been updating partners with frequent email communications since the beginning of the pandemic. In 2020, 153 partner communications were sent including information about State and County orders, business resources, self-care tips and information about CVB initiatives.
Partnership opportunities are updated at MyGPSCVB.com including how to take advantage of free promotional opportunities, website advertising, co-op marketing and CVB Partnership.
The CVB launched a website redesign in 2020 and advertising opportunities are available through our marketing partner DTN.
