Pledge to Protect

Pledge to Protect Logo

Gulf County is committed to creating a clean, safe and healthy environment for residents and visitors as we reopen our businesses and organizations following COVID-19 restrictions.

Coronavirus doesn’t take a vacation, but it does travel. Everyone is going to have to do their part to make sure that we minimize the spread of the virus moving forward. This means continuing to observe social distancing, wearing masks in places where social distancing is difficult, and following good hygiene practices. Most of all, be respectful and kind to others.

Local businesses shown on this page of our website have taken the Pledge to Protect and are stepping up to protect others. Click on any of the listings within this section to find contact info and more details about each business.
