Member for Mackellar Jason Falinski MP has called on the NSW Government to better target lockdown provisions, releasing hundreds of thousands from stay at home orders and letting business get back to work.
There have been zero community transmitted cases of COVID-19 across the Northern Beaches and Central Coast regions over the last four weeks.
“We need to forge through this pandemic and break this seemingly infinite loop in Australia of outbreaks equating to mass lockdowns.”
“Continuing to accentuate the pain of this pandemic by limiting individual liberty, crushing certainty for businesses and causing hardship for families through extensive restrictions when there is no overriding and greater public health reason for doing so has to end,” Jason Falinski MP said.
The Member for Mackellar has echoed the state Member for Manly James Griffin MP in calling for an easing of ‘stay at home’ restrictions across the Northern Beaches, the resumption of business, and getting kids back to school.
“People of the Northern Beaches paid their dues over the Christmas and the New Year period. They carried the country and avoided a mass outbreak by locking down.”
“It proved you can manage the outbreaks through LGA restrictions without unreasonably upending millions of lives.”
“Australia can’t survive on Federal Government handouts; we need to get businesses back open, people back at work, kids back to school and all of us back to normal.”
“We can’t afford as a society to be unnecessarily spreading the suffering of this pandemic when we should be focused on limiting its impact,” Jason Falinski MP said.
As of this morning over 8.6mpeople in Australia have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination and by tonight it will be a lot higher. Record jabs are being given daily and across this week alone we are expected to reach a million people.
