At the start of lock down, the City of Cape Town engaged businesses across the City on the impact that the lockdown and the COVID-19 pandemic was having on their businesses. The inputs from that survey have been used to inform the City’s response to business support in the pandemic. The economy is now gradually re-opening and people are returning to work. This is not without its challenges. In order to continue to support businesses in this time, we are undertaking another survey.
The purpose of this survey is to gather information to determine the impact of the current COVID-19 virus pandemic on businesses operating in the Cape Town/Western Cape region with the aim of directing those in distress to suitable institutions for assistance. We would appreciate it if you could take ten minutes to complete the survey which can be found at the following web link:
The City of Cape Town will continue to support businesses in distress as we seek to minimize the economic impact of the pandemic. Two useful online resources that can assist business returning to work and looking for government and private sector support can be found at:
