COVID-19 Toolkit for Small Businesses

To help small businesses navigate their way around the current COVID situation they are being encouraged to download and use the resources from the NSW Government COVID-19 Toolkit. 

“Service NSW have developed a toolkit to assist small businesses deliver the message about current public health orders,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “This toolkit addresses the changes regarding physical distancing restriction, maximum capacities and mandatory requirements in all indoor areas.”

“It also has a lot of helpful resources including posters to display, social media content to inform customers and employees and information on what is required when entering the workplace or business shop.” 

“Small businesses are greatly impacted by changes in the COVID-19 restrictions as it changes the amount of people coming into towns and shopping locally,” said Cr Ambrose Doolan.

Businesses are encouraged to jump onto Council’s website, under the businesses and small businesses tab, and download this COVID-19 toolkit. 

All businesses should now have Service NSW QR codes in place, ensuring all customers are signing in when entering and remember that masks are mandatory at all indoor venues, including workplaces. Signing in using Service NSW QR codes is set to become mandatory for all staff and customers on 12 July 2021.

“Although these restrictions may impact our communities, we want to see businesses stay open throughout this time. It is up to us to follow the restrictions correctly, stop the spread and shop local,” Cr Doolan concluded. 

If small businesses are unclear about the new COVID-19 measurers for their industry, please contact Council’s Manager Economic Development and Tourism on (02) 6849 2000.
