The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation with support from the Enterprise Forum and the Retail Consultation Forum have launched a survey to get a better understanding of business issues around implementing Covid-19 Prevention Measures. Results from this survey will be used to inform strategies that can help businesses implement measures to further reduce the spread of Covid-19 for both customers and employees. You can find the survey here.
