West to take on board the public health messages and
work together to contain the spread of Covid-19.

and Chamber President Jimmy Stafford on the border at
Jimmy Stafford, President
Letterkenny explains, “As cases in the North West
continue to rise we decided to come together to issue a
joint message on behalf of our member companies and
businesses across the North West region. We are asking
everyone to wash their hands, wear a mask, keep social
distance and cut down on social gatherings. Businesses
across the region have done all they can in terms of
protecting their customers and staff. If we all stick to
the guidelines over coming weeks we can protect lives
and livelihoods across the region”.
