Retail NI Comment on Executive Decisions on Covid Relaxations


8th July 2021

Commenting on the outcomes of today’s Executive meeting on Covid-19 relaxations, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:

“While there will be some disappointment that we are not moving faster, these decisions do give us an outline of a roadmap toward the full reopening of our economy and a return to some sort of normality”

“We need to see the Executive work with the business community to achieve the safe return of staff to offices and workplaces and provide indicative dates to achieve this. This reopening will be important to boost footfall for our members and high streets as a whole”

“It is vital that we all play our role in encouraging full vaccination and containing the spread of the virus as we hopefully approach the beginning of the end of this pandemic”

“Retail NI is disappointed that the roll out of public hand sanitiser units in our town centres and high streets has been virtually non-existent outside of Belfast City Centre. This needs to happen if we want to reduce transmission of the virus and provide confidence to shoppers”
