LOCKDOWN Wednesday

The Australian Hotels Association President David Canny says the government has got to revise its road map and get the hospitality industry moving –  “The debt-cliff of Victoria’s 1,450 pubs and hotels cannot be walked away from. It continues to mount daily, along with anxiety and mental pressures.” We ask what does the industry need.  

Dr Peter Slattery has been leading a group of researchers monitoring our behaviour in Lockdown – for the most part we are compliant – Worryingly however –  more than a third of Australians with cold- or flu-like symptoms spend time in public and almost one in five go to  work despite rampant COVID-19 cases and deaths.

Landscapers, Pool & Spa Builders and Pool technicians are dumbfounded that the government has not allowed them back to work – despite both organisations being at the forefront of Covid safe practices. We speak with Megan Flower, CEO Landscaping Victoria Master Landscapers.  

Despite the pandemic- Probus is celebrating on the eve of Older Persons Day. We speak with past President Margaret Robinson about Probus and its future.  

School teacher and local resident Despi O’Connor says she is committed to her local community – and is standing in the Briars ward for  the upcoming council elections.  

AND what is hotel lockdown really like – we speak with Victorian Breanna Guterres who is  isolated in a Brisbane hotel as she waits on a heartfelt reunion with her family.
