Following the advice of NPHET the Government is now imposing Level 5 restrictions to curb the significant and swift growth of Covid 19 in our communities and Nation. These measures will come into place midnight Wednesday .
Whilst this is a necessary requirement to protect us all, it will undoubtedly cause great concern to those businesses and their employees who will be directly impacted by the restrictions. Now is the time for us all as business owners and employees to dig deeper, we are all feeling weary and find this extremely challenging but we need to keep going.
Now is the time to focus on supporting our family, friends and the local business community and where you can, please shop local. Check online for your favourite local shops, their front door may be closed but their digital one will be open.
Keeping it Local, keeps Jobs, where they belong in our community.
