P-06-1182 Only shut businesses that have previously had a COVID-19 case linked to them



This petition was submitted by Chris Morgan, having collected a total of 115 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

For me and many others who work in the leisure and hospitality industry it is frustrating when we are getting shut down and punished for selfish behaviour from a small minority. I am proposing that businesses who have not had any COVID-19 cases linked to them and are complying with all COVID-19 safety regulations and more should not have to suffer and be allowed to remain open as we are providing a safe, controlled environment for people to meet in.
