With Omicron cases in the community rapidly rising, it is increasingly likely that COVID-19 will affect small businesses in your local government area. The Small Business Development Corporation has put together a practical toolkit to assist businesses owners to prepare for, and manage, the impact of the virus at the workplace. The toolkit contains:

✔️ details about what to do if a workplace is an exposure site

✔️ information about staff leave and pay entitlements

✔️ tips for communicating with staff and customers

✔️ how to undertake environmental cleaning

✔️ links to relevant resources

🔗 If you are a local business, please make sure that you add your details to the Shire of Chittering’s Business List. Not only does this help connect your business with other locals, but also means in the near future the Shire can get in touch to research the impact COVID-19 has had on your business to see how we can assist. Find it here: www.chittering.wa.gov.au/listings/business/business
