With the rapid spreading of COVID-19, the Voice put the call out to local businesses to indicate if they would be offering contactless pick-up or delivery over the next few weeks to months.
With social distancing already in place and those with symptoms of COVID-19 being asked to self-isolate, and a total lockdown not out of the question, the local community may rely on a delivery service to get by.
Shopping locally also helps keep our local economy ticking over, just at a time when they need it desperately.
This is by no means an exhaustive list and only represents the businesses who replied to the Voice’s social media posts.
There will be many more businesses that will offer this service, and our readers are encouraged to do their own extensive research.
By shopping locally, we can help our small businesses get through what is already a tough time. And it’s only going to get tougher.
With a statewide shutdown being enforced from tomorrow (24 March), it’s more important now than ever to order online as much as possible
Spending money locally also helps keep local people employed.
We all need to help each other.
– Justin Flynn, news editor Ocean Grove Voice
