The Cleveland Clinic is advising a Parisian firm to ensure the cleanliness of a city in Texas.

The clinic said it's advising Paris-based Bureau Veritas to make sure the city of Plano, Texas, which is north of Dallas, is clean enough to reopen municipal operations.

Bureau Veritas said it will deploy its "SafeGuard Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label" to support the operational restart activities of government facilities and services, educational institutions, recreation centers, and office buildings in Plano.

The Cleveland Clinic serves as the medical advisor for Bureau Veritas' health, safety and sustainability programs.

Bureau Veritas said Plano is the first municipality in the United States to deploy its Hygiene Excellence and Safety Program." Bureau Veritas said in a statement that it will inspect, audit and certify 10 of the city of Plano's facilities including, Jack Carter Pool, the police department headquarters, the municipal center, and Haggard Library. 

This partnership with Bureau Veritas is one of many that The Cleveland Clinic has made in the past few months.

In mid-July, the Cleveland Clinic said it will work with the Clorox Co. to develop new cleaning protocols to combat the Covid-19 crisis.

Earlier in July, the Cleveland Clinic said it will work with Air Canada to help develop Covid-19 safety measures for the airline.

And in May, United Airlines partnered with Clorox and the Cleveland Clinic on new cleaning and operational changes intended to reassure travelers about their safety at the airport and on its airplanes.
