As New South Wales takes the first step in our Roadmap to recovery, Albury Business Connect is encouraging everyone to be mindful of the Public Health Orders and the restrictions still in place.

It’s been a tough 18 months for border businesses and residents as we’ve navigated two sets of restrictions and multiple lockdowns. The NSW rules for 70% and 80% double vaccination are there to help keep us safe as we move towards the 1 December 90% double vaccination milestone.

We’re calling on all members of our community to come together to support one another over the next six weeks until the 1 December milestone is reached.

“As a business owner we would ask everyone to be respectful of all staff and management. Bullying and harassment is never ok and not acceptable at a workplace. COVID has been a difficult path for business to navigate and this is another bump in the road. We would ask everyone to remain respectful and kind to each other and look forward to brighter times ahead.” – Barry Young, Albury Business Connect Chair

Businesses have the right to operate safely, employees have the right to work in a safe environment, and customers have the right to feel safe when they enter a business premises.

The COVID safe business toolkit and NSW Roadmap resources are available online. The NSW Small Business Commissioner has a handy guide for business requirements as well.

Our team is here to support our members and the wider community in any way we can, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need us. The Better Place Project also has mental health and wellbeing resources available for employers and staff.
