Tommy Dilosa
So if a business motel / hotel is open but the province has travel restrictions and isolation policies are in place from the province and also the country has it's borders closed how does a business get around paying an employee that we do not have any work for knowing that we do not expect any guest.
Terri Shobbrook
I just want to say thank you for this~
Dan Coffin
Thanks Terry and team. Very informative and glad you take the honest and open approach. 70% drop in business is not a happy or easy message to share, but good to be honest so we can all work with what we are really facing.
Werner Buchhofer
So what can we expect from the government for financial help for our loss?
