What is the 5-Star Certification Program?
“The 5-Star Program rewards businesses that implement safety measures beyond what is already required by public health orders. 5-Star certification reassures employees and customers that businesses are adhering to the enhanced measures. The program is completely voluntary and businesses are encouraged to learn about the state’s program framework to determine if it will be a good fit for their business model.”
