How Murraylands Businesses Are Coping During COVID


Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the vast majority of businesses in the Murraylands are optimistic about continuing on post-pandemic.

New data, released by Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland (RDAMR), reveals that 94% of businesses in the Murraylands and Riverland have remained open, or plan to re-open, once restrictions lift.

Most businesses have had to adapt drastically and set up online platforms to stay afloat during the pandemic including Murray Bridge retail outlet The Birch House and cafe Noti & Folk, both owned by Murray Bridge husband and wife duo Ray and Tania Long.
