Cafe and employer of disabled workers Equalitea are moving to takeaways and deliveries and are optimistic the business will survive COVID-19.
NT Friendship and Support community engagement executive manager Tricia Kelly said the NDIS-funded organisation has already sent its youngest workers home.
"We've had to put off our casual staff which is made up of high-school students," she said.
"They can focus on high-school now but they were learning new skills and it is hard for them because they're anxious about friends and family.
"We still have a supported employee with a disability on Tuesdays and Fridays and a full-time staff member so we'll find ways to keep them engaged because they've been here from the start," Ms Kelly said.
Equalitea is just one of many Katherine businesses looking for new streams of income to survive the hard times, make sure you also let us know you are open as well by filling in the form as well so we can others through out popular website.
Despite COVID-19, Ms Kelly said Katherine residents are making the effort to support Equalitea and other businesses in their position.
"They're getting behind us as much as they can with the restrictions now in place, we've been getting quieter but that's to be expected," she said.
"You've just got to support local and people already are."
"We've had people say that they're going to a different cafe in town every day to share the support around and I think that's a great idea, that's the way to do it.
"Ring us up for your Schnitzel or whatever, we'll have it ready for you at the time you want it," Ms Kelly said.
