Victoria’s small and medium business community has applauded Dan Andrews’ decision to ban the unvaccinated from all events, restaurants and bars through the use of vaccine passports from October.
Up to 30% of the Victorian community, an estimated 2.5 million people, will be banned from attending businesses, venues and industries hit hard by lockdowns.
“I applaud a man that’s never run a business and worked exclusively in government his entire career to make a tough call like this,” John Stapleton of Small Business Victoria said.
“It’s great to see that he’s doing as much as he can to get us back on our feet again, whilst destroying us for the last 18 months with unscientific lockdowns.”
Andrews says he’s confident he can get the bankruptcy rate “up to 90%” in the coming weeks.
