The COVID stage 4 lockdown has ended, however, some modified restrictions remain in place, including limits on social gatherings and wearing masks indoors at all times.
Many local businesses are doing it tough during the current restrictions. By shopping locally, you are not only supporting small businesses, you are also supporting local job growth and helping to build strong, vibrant communities.
Here are some ways you can continue to support local businesses while maintaining social distancing recommendations:
You can find a local business in our Be Kind to Business directory.
Our Economic Development team can help put you in touch with assistance resources, programs and tools. They can also provide a one on one consultation with a business expert who can provide advice based on your unique situation.
Download these information sheets with information and guides to help you reopen and meet the current requirements.
If you know someone with a business that needs support, visit the Business section of our website or call 1300 368 333. The Business Victoria hotline is also available for assistance on 13 22 15.
