With all of that in mind the reality is that the Eurobodalla businesses have been dealt another MASSIVE hit as the lockdown ties in with the Winter school holidays - Monday 28 June - Friday 9 July. Accommodation providers are reporting cancellations up and down the coast. With each cancellation comes the trickle down impact into our cafes, restaurants, shops and activity providers. So here is a call to arms of what we can do. Use your DINE and DISCOVER VOUCHERS. Go out for a meal, go to the movies, visit a giraffe, go to a club. BUT FOLLOW THE COVID RULES Yes, it might sound scary but you are well trained for all of this. Wash your hands, stay away from politicians who want to shake your hand or kiss your baby, be Covid safe and know that every single dollar you spend in your community over the next two weeks helps your community to survive another Covid setback.
