Retail NI Welcomes Executive Covid-19 Relaxations

Commenting on the Executive’s decision to relax Covid-19 regulations, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“It is to be welcomed that non-essential retail, close contact services and hospitality have at long last dates to reopen. This is a very significant step forward for the reopening of our high streets, our local economy and is fantastic news for thousands of local small businesses”

“30th April will be a hugely important day and the Executive needs to work with industry groups and councils on the preparation for the reopening of our high streets. Public hand sanitisers, Covid marshals and agreed Covid compliance signage for businesses all need to be in place ahead of reopening to reassure consumers that our high streets are safe to return to and also to reduce levels of the transmission of the virus”

“There is a lot of hard work ahead of reopening but today is real progress”
