Santa Monica Shines Assurance Program

To help Santa Monica Shine and to reaffirm our city-wide commitment to safety and cleanliness, the Santa Monica Shines Assurance Program was formed in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, Santa Monica Travel & Tourism, ARROW UP and Santa Monica College in collaboration with Sustainable Works.

Look for the Santa Monica Shines COVID-19 Assurance program seals in the storefronts of Santa Monica businesses. These businesses have gone above and beyond to ensure you feel safe and comfortable.

Businesses who are COVID-19 Assured have done the following:

  • Demonstrated that they are following cleaning protocols designated by the Center for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
  • Have had their staff complete the Santa Monica Shines online training on COVID-19 awareness and customer service.
  • Conducted an on-site or virtual walk-through with a member of Sustainable Works.
  • Agreed to receive protocol updates and new content through micro-courses and micro-lessons to promote on-going awareness of the evolving pandemic and keep safety top-of-mind.
