We are committed to contributing in whatever way we can to help flatten the curve. With at least 35 Protea Chemicals employees residing in Dunoon and considering that the community is among the most vulnerable to COVID-19, nationally, we took the collective decision to begin our roll-out of hand rub in this area.”
