Suffolk Chamber's reaction to the tiers
“Being placed in Tier 2 was what most Suffolk businesses were probably expecting. This does represent progress on the national lockdown situation for many businesses in the hospitality, retail, leisure and personal care sectors. But we seem to be many months away from a return to full-on trading conditions.
“The focus must now be on a comprehensive rapid turnaround test and tracing system and vaccine rollout. Suffolk’s industrious and imaginative businesses, which have been so agile in adapting to the constantly changing restrictions over the last nine months or so, deserve good Government planning and effective delivery to help them manage themselves out of the current situation. Westminster and Whitehall must now step up.”
