“Building a stronger Bodmin in Business for the Community”

Concerning the novel coronavirus "Covid-19"

Town Centre Covid-19 Management Scheme — Chamber Position

The Bodmin Chamber of Commerce’s principal consideration in this matter is the need to ensure that people coming into the town centre, for whatever reason, are able to do so without compromising their personal safety. Our absolute priority, both from a civic duty perspective and from a business standpoint, must be the prevention of onward transmission of Covid-19. An outbreak in Bodmin and its environs would not only be a personal tragedy for anyone affected but would also necessitate Bodmin being locked down: all shops and businesses would be required to close, and to wait for a second wave to pass. We must all do everything in our power to avoid this.

Covid-19 advice for local businesses and residents

The Bodmin Chamber of Commerce and Industry is, for obvious reasons, not competent to advise anyone on how best to avoid contracting Covid-19, nor to advise on how best to proceed if they suspect that they may have contracted it; we can, to a certain extent, offer advice as to how businesses might best protect their existence during the current crisis. The links that follow are therefore primarily to authoritative sources of information such as the World Health Organisation, NHS UK, NKS Kernow and H.M. Government, who are in a position to offer authoritative advice on these vital topics.
