Niagara Public Health issued an order under Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, introducing new restrictions on food and drink premises in the Niagara Region.
The Grimsby & District Chamber of Commerce supports the rescinding of the recent Section 22 order, which has placed additional restrictions solely targeting the Food & Beverage industry in the Niagara Region. We strongly encourage all levels of government to make data-driven decisions, decisions that encompass all sectors shown to be contributing significantly to the spread of COVID-19, and that the data behind future restrictions be made public.
We urge all citizens and businesses in Niagara to be part of actively stopping the spread of COVID-19: wear a mask, maintain physical distancing, and practice excellent hand hygiene. And, support your local businesses in a safe, responsible, and respectful manner.
