Commenting on the NI Executive’s Coronavirus recovery strategy, Ann McGregor, Chief Executive of Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, commented:
“The Executive’s five-step plan provides a significant step forward in terms of information available on the easing of lockdown, however the absence of dates means that planning ahead will be a challenge for businesses of all sizes.
“Businesses share the NI Executive’s ambition to see more people return safely to work over the coming weeks – and they will do everything they can to protect employees and customers, maintain social distancing and operate successfully. They now need to see the Executive’s plan supported by clear guidance. It is imperative that companies have detailed advice on what will need to change in the workplace, including clarity on the use of PPE, so that they can make plans to re-open safely.”
