New Brunswick Economic Development Organizations Launch COVID-19 Resource Website for Businesses
To help you prepare for that impact, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton in partnership with several other economic stakeholders in southeastern New Brunswick, has created this webpage to provide the latest and most comprehensive information.
We’re going to get through this together. But for now, we urge you to stay home and stay safe. If you have to go out, practise social distancing as we need to support our front-line workers and vulnerable employees that have to report for essential work during this crisis.RESOURCES
On March 19, 2020, Premier Blaine Higgs declared a State of Emergency in New Brunswick due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All retail and public-facing businesses were immediately mandated to close, except for essential service businesses.
This unprecedented situation will impact the operations of many of our downtown businesses for the foreseeable future. In our effort to keep you connected and informed, with the help of various economic partners, below are links for resources to help you, our downtown businesses, cope with and prepare for the ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR OFFICE IS CLOSED BUT THAT WE ARE WORKING FROM HOME. If you need to get in touch with us, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
