Durham Region Businesses Answer The Call to Fight Coronavirus

Durham Business Coronavirus

With the COVID-19 pandemic creating chaos across the world, there has been an incredible change in our day-to-day lives, with many vulnerable people sick, needing to stay isolated or helping others that are. 

Many people who work in the front lines fighting this invisible foe work tirelessly, and are also in fear of catching this virus and spreading it to others. They work in healthcare, providing essential goods and services, keeping our infrastructure running and in so many other facets of our communities.

A number of local businesses are stepping up to help, with many modifying their product offerings or doing something completely different from what their normal product or service is. Some have made exceptional offerings, be that in supplies or services.

Let's not forget their contributions, both during and following this crisis. Links are provided for you to give them a boost on their facebook page or on their website. Even better, support their business now, and after this crisis is over!
