TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Vigo County and the City of Terre Haute have joined forces to create the Power of You, a campaign to raise awareness surrounding the necessary safety measures to decrease the risk and spread of COVID-19 in the community.
Through funds from the Public Safety Awareness Program, the Power of You serves as an opportunity to showcase the community’s frontline workers by asking the community to utilize “the Power of You” to protect one another and slow the spread of the virus. The campaign can be found on local radio stations, TV commercials, billboards, newspapers and on Mayor Duke Bennett’s and the Vigo County Commissioners’ social media accounts.
“Our community continues to face the impacts of COVID-19,” noted Vigo County Commissioner Brendan Kearns. “Through the Power of You campaign, we are able to bring awareness to the necessary safety measures needed to decrease the risk and spread of the virus and remind Vigo County to mask up.”
“Through this collaborative effort with Vigo County, we are able to empower those within our community to do their part in slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Bennett. “The Power of You encourages our citizens to continue to protect those around them by taking precautions in their day-to-day activities. Mask up, Terre Haute!”
The Power of You provides the citizens of Vigo County and Terre Haute tips on how they can do their part to protect their neighbors, their friends and families, strangers and healthcare workers by wearing masks, social distancing, washing their hands and making smart decisions about going out in public.
