At the time of writing, the Makers Market in Warrington is still scheduled to go ahead. We have a stall on that date and are looking forward to our first Makers Market.
As the event takes place outside in the open fresh air it is safer than enclosed supermarkets, etc.
Advice from Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Jenny Harries, on BBC Breakfast this week:
“At outdoor events the virus won’t survive very long. Outside it will lose its viability to transmit disease, and so, outdoor events particularly, are relatively safe.”
The organisers have put measures in place to ensure stall holders and visitors are in the safest environments.
It goes without saying if you do feel unwell, or have been to any of the affected areas such as Italy, to self isolate.
Otherwise, if you feel like a bit of fresh air and able to support small businesses at this time when they need it most, we will be there.
