Economy Minister Gordon Lyons has encouraged visitors and staycationers to help ensure the tourism industry is ‘Good to Go’ by supporting local businesses.

“One way people can ensure precautions are being taken is to keep an eye out for ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark. The UK industry standard accreditation, which businesses display in their premises and online, indicates they have agreed to comply with Covid-19 safety guidelines, like social distancing and recommended cleaning processes; and also to undergo spot checks to ensure procedures are being maintained.

“Currently over 1,800 businesses in Northern Ireland have been awarded with the ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark with more coming on board all the time.”

The Minister added:

“As we get out and about more this summer, I would also encourage everyone to take the pledge to take care of Northern Ireland.

“By signing up we are all committing to make a difference to take care of each other, to take care of the land, and to take care of local businesses. Together we can help our economy to recover while keeping everyone safe.”
