NSW LEFT IN THE DARK: THE ONLY STATE WITHOUT A ROADMAP FOR RESTRICTIONS

-->

Labor is demanding the Berejiklian Government follow the leadership of every other state in Australia and release a roadmap for the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

Labor Shadow Minister for Health Ryan Park said: “While every other Australian state, and many other countries have published recovery plans, the Berejiklian Government has left the people of NSW in the dark, and is making changes to restrictions that look confusing and unplanned.”

Analysis shows that NSW is the only state that has failed to release a roadmap:
 

State

Recovery Roadmap / Plan 
 

Victoria

  YES

Queensland

  YES

South Australia

  YES

Western Australia

  YES

Tasmania

  YES

Northern Territory

  YES

New South Wales

  NO

“Leaving NSW in the dark about the roadmap out of this crisis reduces confidence in our government. It leaves people confused and it makes the Berejiklian Government look like it’s in chaos.

“NSW needs a clear and transparent roadmap out of this health crisis, so families, businesses big and small, churches and community organisations can begin to plan to get back to normal. MS Berejiklian must get her act together and give this State the guidance it deserves.”

Yesterday the Victorian Government announced a roadmap to recovery, yet in NSW hundreds of thousands of small businesses still have no certainty.

Labor Shadow Minister for Small Business Daniel Mookhey said  small businesses need certainty about when they can open. 

“Ms Berejiklian’s complex explanations about who is allowed to trade has left NSW small businesses confused.  
 
“Gyms, cinemas, massage parlours, tattoo clinics and cultural centres simply want to know when can they open their doors again.
 
“In Victoria, these small businesses know they precise date they can trade. NSW small businesses don’t have the same certainty.
 
“NSW small businesses need a clear and simple roadmap that lets them plan for the future with certainty.”
