Sioux City's effort to go "blue" and get healthy is growing.

After nearly 6 to 7 months in the making, the Siouxland District Health Department became the latest business to be designated a Blue Zone Work site.

They held a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate this achievement this morning.

"We felt that something as a public health agency , that this is something that we strive to educate the community and about also following some of these practices. So for us to become a designated Blue Zone Site, it fits in with our overall mission and goals of what we look for as an agency," Kevin Grieme, SDHD Executive Director.

To go "Blue", Siouxland District Health implemented a stairwell campaign to get people to use the stairs instead of the elevator.

They also added a breast-feeding and lactation room and an in-house wellness room for clients and staff to use.
