Many recent TV commercials for local businesses have made a point to show their workers wearing face masks, and cleaning their stores because of the coronavirus. 

Businesses in the La Crosse area have been urged to follow a six-step cleanliness program as a way to keep customers and workers healthy. 

The campaign is called ‘Check the Spread.’    

La Crosse County development specialist Brian Fukuda says having businesses promise to follow healthy practices could keep customers coming in.

Companies agreeing to take part in the program will be included on a list of businesses available to customers.
