The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is urging shoppers to keep safe whilst out shopping this weekend with the Northern Ireland circuit breaker restrictions ended. Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor, Peter Johnston said: “As we move closer to Christmas, our energy is focused on reminding people to stay safe whilst doing all that they can to support local businesses in these challenging times.
“This has been a difficult year for everyone, not least those who have been striving to run a business, as they continue to provide services and keep people in jobs during this pandemic.
“Business owners and retailers in Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Larne have worked hard in putting the necessary measures in place to help keep staff and customers safe. So when out and about, it’s important that everyone follows the public health advice: wash or sanitise hands often, wear a face covering and practise social distancing.
“We all have an important role to play in helping to stop the spread of Covid19.
