Local Leadership Sharing Importance of Staying Home in Compilation Video

Cape Breton Island, NS – The Cape Breton Partnership has brought together local leaders of all levels of government from across our beautiful Island as part of a video to share why it is so important to continue to stay home in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

“Never before have people around the world been directed to stay at home to keep their loved ones safe and healthy,” says Cape Breton Partnership President & CEO Carla Arsenault. “Thankfully, those of us fortunate enough to call beautiful Cape Breton – Unama’ki home are known for our resilience. By staying home, we can keep our greatest resource, our people, safe and healthy.”

Coordinated by the Cape Breton Partnership and Seaside Communications, the video features Cape Breton – Unama’ki wardens, mayors, chiefs, MLAs, and MPs answering one important question: Who are you staying home for?

The video will be shared this week through a number of social media and televised platforms and can be found online at https://bit.ly/CB-Who-are-you-staying-home-for.

Cape Breton Partnership staff have been working closely with the business community and all levels of government, discussing the various resources available since social distancing and travel restrictions were put in place to flatten the curve and reduce COVID-19’s community spread. In response, the Cape Breton Partnership developed a COVID-19 Resource page on its website and a webinar series aimed at helping businesses navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. The resources webpage is updated daily and can be found at https://www.capebretonpartnership.com/covid-19-resources/.
