This week we met with Hon Shannon Fentiman Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development, and local state members, to discuss:
> Easing of Restrictions to stage 3– We gave feedback on the stage 3 easing of restrictions outlining concerns of members in relation to the 4sqm rule. In some cases where a venue is between 201 – 450 sqm with a approved covid safe plan, under the “easing of restrictions” they will be further restricted. It is also important to realise that businesses are still not viable under the current restrictions without Job keeper in place.
> The announcement around Business Support Officers to assist local chambers over the next 12 month
