With the current coronavirus outbreak, and the social distancing measures in effect, businesses everywhere are facing new challenges and threats. To help support our local businesses, which are vital to the well-being of our communities, this article will present a list of businesses who are responding to the pandemic—letting you know what measures they’re taking, and how you can support them.

We ask that customers only touch products that they intend to buy. If you need help finding a product please ask a Cheese Shop staff member for assistance.

Please also note the following regarding current operations at the Cheese Shop:

Please use your best judgement when planning your visit and follow the recommendations from Provincial authorities: If you have had any COVID-19-related symptoms, have been around anyone who has displayed symptoms, or have travelled outside the province within the last 14 days, we ask that you refrain from visiting the store. We would like to stay open for as long as it is safe to do so, but this will only be possible by following these guidelines.

Clarence Braun & Russ Kehler - Keller Williams Real Estate: For us in Real Estate, the changes we face have been ever changing. Showings are allowed under certain protocols but as of now all Open Houses have been suspended.

Within the past 2 weeks I have personally taken the precautions when showing properties by using the following:

- The use of sanitary wipes and protective gloves upon entry of homes for myself as well as clients.

- When necessary the use of a mask if I have been unsure or for any first meeting with clients.

- I have taken steps that ensure that I am not in the house when clients go through. This is unprecedented and something that I do not like but I am committed to social distancing. I will always ensure clients are in agreement with this before showings.

- I leave any feature sheets and marketing materials in a folder inside for people to take along with them.

- After the showing I meet with clients outside the home from a very safe distance and answer any questions that might arise out of the showings.

Country Snacks: Together with Red River Co-op we are taking steps to help our community stay safe and healthy.
