Causeway Chamber Reaction to New Executive Restrictions
Commenting on the NI Executive’s new Covid-19 restrictions, Causeway Chamber President David Boyd said:
“We are extremely concerned about the impact of the announced closures today and the impact they will have on reducing footfall for our members and our towns and villages”.
“The Executive also needs to outline what assistance will be given to retailers and other businesses who aren't legally required to close, but are forced to do so because their numbers of customers and trade dramatically decrease as a result of the restrictions and it quite simply isn’t financially viable for them to remain open”.
“There is also a concern that this four-week restriction may only be a prelude to a wider lockdown. Let’s be very clear - there cannot be a return to full lockdown”.
We urge everyone to play their part, reduce the spread and help the business community to survive.
