The County of Brant has found a way to help local businesses by creating a webpage to navigate them and residents of the County through the COVID-19 Pandemic at www.brant.ca/BrantWorksTogether. The Mayor, David Bailey, put out an address about it.
As part of this new effort they have created an interactive map that allows you to see local business that are open and operating during this COVID-19 Pandemic. Find it at brant.ca/BrantWorksTogether under the title Brant Business Resiliency Map.
Using this resource you can sort through a surprising number of businesses under the headings of Groceries and Food Retail, Pharmacy, Restaurant, Retail Businesses, Essential Industry Operating, and Public Facilities.
To get to the interactive menu be sure to click on the layers tab under the welcome. Then you can click on the various dots to get business names, addresses, contact information, even website or social media sites they use to help with their services!
This is a brilliant resource that should help many to continue to shop locally and find what they need during this time.
