COVID-19: Business Support
On Monday 23rd March the New Zealand Government announced the level of alert for COVID-19 had moved to level 3 and would be raised to Level 4 by Wednesday 25th March. The 48 hour grace period is to enable businesses to prepare to close their premises and to set up to work from home where possible. Read all about it here.
The Otago Chamber and the Otago Regional Business Partner Team are available to support you through this challenging period and as providers of the Regional Business Partner Network in Otago, we have an important role, funded by government to link businesses to available support.
