Visit Gainesville, Alachua County Safe Stay Pledge

Visit Gainesville, Alachua County, in partnership with the Alachua County Hospitality Council, created tools for area lodging and tourism partners via the Visit Gainesville, Alachua County Safe Stay Pledge to show a unified commitment to the health and safety of those who live, work, and visit Alachua County.

“At all times, and especially during the time of COVID19, the Alachua County Visitors and Convention Bureau provides the information and tools that our visitors need to navigate our destination,” said Tourism Development Manager, Jessica Hurov. “The Safe Stay Pledge is another way to provide information to help inform the personal travel choices that individuals need to make during their stay.”

“We are pleased to join Visit Gainesville, Alachua County in support of the Safe Stay pledge,” said Alachua County Hospitality Council President Rebecca Lamb. “Our lodging properties remain ready to welcome visitors and to ensure that our guests are confident that best practices are being followed for their health and safety. Now, more than ever, we are all in this together.”

The Safe Stay pledge has been signed by owners and managers at 36 of Alachua County’s hotels, motels, and bed and breakfasts. Safe Stay lodging properties agree to:
