Be 5weet Campaign
Tourism is Polk County’s, and Florida’s, largest industry. In 2019, visitors to Polk County spent more than $1.5 billion in accommodations, restaurants, food, entertainment and shopping. The Be 5weet campaign includes these five steps below for residents and visitors to be sweet to one another, in order to create a safe community for residents, which in turn helps create a safe destination for people to visit.
- Social Distance
- Mask Up
- Wash Hands
- Stay Home if Sick
- Follow Guidelines
Local vendors such as Bond Clinic, BayCare, Simply Healthcare, Soni Family Practice of Davenport and The Blood Mobile will be on site for this free event, to talk about their services and hand out health and safety products, including masks, hand sanitizer and thermometers. All giveaways are while supplies last. There will be safety measures in place to promote social distancing and proper hygiene.
