The Atlantic Vice President of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business says he's pleased with the province's decision to reopen the economy, but adds it still lacks some clarity.
On Wednesday, Premier Stephen McNeil announced the province's next steps to reopening the economy, saying businesses that were required to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be able to restart operations on June 5.
Jordi Morgan told NEWS 95.7 he's happy to hear this, but adds there are still some questions that need to be answered.
"It remains to be seen how well this happens because we're still not entirely clear on what all the requirements are for these individual businesses," said Morgan.
Morgan is also pleased with the province's new small business reopening and support grant, a $25 million fund that will help businesses welcome back customers safely.
"Very happy to see that because there are a number of businesses that are going to require some bridging to reopen, invest in personal protective equipment and other things that are necessary in order to operate the business," said Morgan.
He says once they get all the guidelines in place, they'll have a better idea of how to operate and keep both the public and employees safe.
