ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Canberra businesses divided over COVID-19 restrictions in roadmap out of lockdown | ABC News” – below is their description.

It was the news so many in the capital had been waiting for — a detailed pathway out of lockdown.

While there’s some optimism at the Canberra Theatre that life will slowly return to normal once lockdown is lifted, the gradual easing of restrictions still spells tough times for some in the business sector.

That’s especially true for hospitality venues, where indoor capacity limits will make it unviable to re-open at all.
