Concrete Playground's Statement on COVID-19: Let's Continue to Support Local Businesses
Going out might not be at the top of your to-do list right now, but you can help small businesses without leaving your apartment.
Dear Concrete Playground Readers,
With the growing concerns surrounding COVID-19, we wanted to take a moment to check in.
Going out might not be at the top of your to-do list right now, but you can continue to support small, local businesses without leaving your apartment. These businesses have had a tough run of late — battling through the lockout laws in Sydney, the bushfires in regional areas and, now, coronavirus fears — and they need our support now more than ever.
Buy from artists who've had their shows cancelled, order gift cards and merch from venues that are struggling or just book in a dinner for that birthday a few months away.
Then, when we come out the other side — which we will — we'll be raring to get out there and hit up concerts, food festivals, comedy galas and charity raves once again. And we'll be there with you every step of the way.
To stay up-to-date with the events postponed and cancelled in your city, head over here. To find out more about the status of COVID-19 in Australia and how to protect yourself, head to the Australian Government Department of Health's website.
