Dorset Chamber of Commerce has asked members how they feel about the so-called ‘Freedom Day’ on Monday. That’s when social distancing measures will be up to individuals.
The survey revealed significant support for retaining the use of masks. And the businesses questioned weren’t keen on resuming handshaking as a greeting.
Chamber chief executive Ian Girling knows Shaftesbury well – he grew up in the town – and he expects business owners and residents here will share similar views.
