    COVID Support: Opposition Leader David Crisafulli is demanding that the State Government launch a COVID support package, following the recent border closure with parts of Sydney.

    The policy would assist businesses impacted by lockdowns and border closures by covering the costs of deep cleaning and cancelled events.

    “What I want to see is when a decision is taken for the greater health good, that it’s not left to business to carry the can.”
