This week’s phased reopening of our economy is a positive and sensible response, to the sacrifices we have all made to restrict the spread of COVID-19 and protect others. It is a strong endorsement of our collective effort and as we go back to business, small business owners must prioritise the safety of their workforce, customers and suppliers.
In this edition we outline the latest public health advice and identify and implement suitable control measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 infection in the workplace. We update readers on the Restart Grant and other COVID-19 available business supports and advice on how to conserve water for essential purposes.
The international consultancy McKinsey & Company has published some interesting research on changes with six trends in consumer sentiment and behaviours globally as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
