DALTON, Ga.—April 29, 2021—The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) is working with its member companies, health organizations, and state and local governments to support vaccination efforts across Dalton, Ga. With the help of industry members, numerous volunteers, and the Latin American Association, the CRI vaccination effort is working to procure vaccines for both carpet industry workers and the greater Dalton community.

“This public-private partnership shows the strength of our community as organizations across our region collaborate to meet the vaccination challenge head on,” said CRI President Joe Yarbrough.

The combined effort of flooring industry competitors and community organizations has resulted in more than 5,000 vaccinations administered at the manufacturers’ facilities in the Dalton area during the first part of April.

“CRI members worked together for the good of the community in this vaccine initiative,” Yarbrough said. “CRI is honored to work for the health and safety of our community members.”

Both manufacturers and community organizations have taken steps to provide vaccines in a safe, professional, and practical way.

“As we near the end of the pandemic, our community leaders, organizations, and businesses remain diligent in protecting the community and keeping the public and the workforce safe,” Yarbrough commented.
