What can I do to support local businesses?
Carterton has already been doing a fantastic job of supporting our local businesses. We know some of them will continue to feel the effects of Covid-19 for quite some time, so it’s important we keep putting our money where our heart is – in Carterton!
Scanning QR codes at local businesses with the NZ COVID Tracer app keeps us 1 step ahead of the virus — the more we scan the safer we’ll be. Keep your phone handy to make scanning in quick and easy.
