ERG will review Covid support on 'ongoing basis'

Businesses say winter help will be needed

Financial support for businesses affected by Covid-19 will be reviewed on 'an ongoing basis'.

The Economic Recovery Group says it remains committed to providing 'timely financial support' in the short, medium and long term.

Applications for a cash injection for customer facing businesses, which saw a drop in turnover in August, will be open until the end of October.

Some businesses have claimed the support will be needed more in the winter months.

In a statement to Manx Radio the ERG said: "All financial support schemes facilitated through the Economic Recovery Programme are reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure that where national or international COVID-19 policy have severely restricted their market sector or operating ability, businesses, industries and jobs in the Island are protected through a transition period and are supported so as to put them in a strong position for the future."
