Charlottetown, PE – The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement following the Government of PEI’s announcement to further ease public health measures and to extend the border closure to non-essential travel until at least January 25, 2021:
“While it is unfortunate that we are unable to move towards re-opening our borders, we recognize that the Atlantic Bubble must remain closed given the current situation in our neighbouring provinces,” said Penny Walsh-McGuire, Chamber CEO. “Re-establishing the bubble, when it is safe to do so, will be important for businesses, families and our economy.”
The Chamber also welcomes the easing of public health measures for organized gatherings, recreational and team sports, and restaurants so that businesses and community groups can continue operating safely with additional cohorts.
