NSMG has received federal funding to help mitigate COVID-19 in the community, and is using this to support local small businesses and their employees. It will fund, at no-cost:
- portable air purification systems, which can help reduce airborne contaminants, including particles containing viruses.
- starter packs of at-home COVID-19 test kits, allowing employees to quickly self-test when they or their families are symptomatic.
- a consultation with NSMG staff on proper use of the purifiers and tests.
These tools, when used properly, can significantly reduce the spread of COVID-19 and help ensure our residents stay healthy and our businesses remain open. With the level of interest in this program unknown, priority will be given to businesses with the most interaction with the public.
