Brampton mayor to dine at Asian restaurants to help combat Coronavirus concerns
Over the past two months, concerns related to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have been an issue across the province.
As a result, Chinese and Asian businesses, particularly in the restaurant and food services sector have experienced a decline in customer traffic, which is believed to be associated with the outbreak that occurred in China.
In support of local businesses that have been affected by the decline in customer traffic, Mayor Patrick Brown, members of council and Jenny Lo, Founder and President, Brampton Chinese Business Association, are inviting the public to dine with them at two Asian restaurants in Brampton.
This will help to reassure residents that the establishments are safe to visit and remind them that they are an important part of Brampton’s economy.
The public is invited to join on Tuesday, February 25, at 7:30 p.m. for appetizers at Pho Viet Nam, located at 14 Main Street South, followed by a dinner at 8:00 p.m. at 9 Queen Chinese, located at 9 Queen Street East.
The Region of Peel would like to remind the public that no cases have been confirmed in the region and the current risk in the region remains low.
