Live Borders announces steps taken to respond to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, charity Live Borders has temporarily closed all venues to the public.
Ewan Jackson, CEO of charity Live Borders said: “These are unprecedented and challenging times for everyone. Thank you to all staff and customers for their patience and understanding as we work hard to navigate a very fluid and ever changing situation around COVID-19.
“Like so many others affected by this pandemic, it is worrying times for everyone, including our staff. We remain committed to the wellbeing of our teams and to ensuring our staff are supported. Live Borders is a charity and every penny we receive is reinvested into supporting active, creative and healthy communities in the Scottish Borders.
“We are investigating digital options to maintain contact with our communities, with online videos linked to our health, culture, leisure and sports offerings – and with our digital library membership there are books and magazines available 24/7.
“We will be in touch with all our customers, members and users to update them on all developments as they happen. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe. By working as a community in these difficult times, we will come out the other side stronger.”
At this point in time, there is no indication as to how long the venues will remain closed. The re-openings will be guided by advice from the Government and Public Health Scotland.
Like every customer-facing business, Live Borders has been receiving a high volume of calls, emails and messages and the teams are responding as efficiently and effectively as possible.
