Businesses on edge and covid-19 case
Towns in the North East are feeling the pinch, as the COVID-19 restrictions on the border start to bite.
Last weekend, many businesses in areas such as Rutherglen and Beechworth were closed for dine-in and only served takeaways.
With owners feeling on edge, patrons were asked to hand sanitise and maintain their social distancing.
Wodonga Mayor Anna Speedie continues to warn off Melbourne visitors to the border.
She says there are always some people with no regard for the health of others.
Making news today:
Business opened again after covid-scare
A border business that was forced to close its doors, following a covid-scare has opened again.
A customer who recently moved from Melbourne to Wodonga failed to disclose information to the business, which meant staff had to be tested for coronavirus and self-isolate.
Owner of the Border Heating and Cooling Karen Pitteri said it has been a tough blow on her business due to being closed for several days while waiting for test results.
