Regional Victoria during COVID – Time to Open Up

Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (13:13): I am using my members statement today to congratulate the work of regional Victoria in fighting coronavirus and in particular the businesses in regional Victoria that have opened safely. Some businesses have reopened despite not being able to open fully, at full capacity, and despite having to comply with strict COVID plans. Hospitality workers have had to wear masks despite groups of up to 10 diners sitting next to each other and not having to wear masks, and this weekend the staff even did it in 28-degree heat. I commend the businesses in these areas and all over regional Victoria who nonetheless are complying with mask wearing and the restrictions within their COVID plans. Let us keep at it, regional Victoria, so the whole state can reopen again and so our businesses can thrive. After all, agribusiness and small businesses are the heart and soul of country Victoria.
