Blanket measures will unnecessarily fuel disruption - Ibec

March 16, 2020

In a statement today, Ibec CEO Danny McCoy said: “As businesses, we all hold a responsibility to help address the enormity of this crisis.  It continues to be imperative that all stakeholders adhere to Government guidance on social distancing measures for the long-term sustainability of our society. Collectively and individually we must play our part.
“However, blanket measures imposed on business will unnecessarily fuel disruption and inevitably wreak long term economic damage. Business is diverse and includes manufacturing and other essential services which can follow social distancing measures to protect the welfare of employees.”
