Initial fears have been eased for a local business thanks to some funding made available.
The Vernon and Kelowna Denture Clinic owners were worried about what the future might look like for their businesses due to COVID-19. Both the Okanagan clinics have been closed since March 16.
The business has recently been granted eligibility for emergency benefit loans (and is just waiting approval) and expects the newly announced commercial rent subsidy will also help.
“These have of course have given us flexibility to keep afloat while we remain closed,” said Regan Truscott, who owns the denture clinics with her husband Tyler Perrault. “We are grateful that the federal government has worked so quickly to put supports in place that will ensure our return to the work we love.”
But just when they can start seeing patients again is still unknown.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to open as soon as possible so that we can resume care of our patients again,” Truscott said.
