OPERATORS need more clarity about exactly how re-opening will work for venues in the Hunter, Business Hunter chief Bob Hawes says.
"Without legislation, at the very least we want to see a concerted campaign by NSW Health and the new leadership in government to educate the public on their individual role and responsibilities in the economic re-opening from 70 per cent double-dose," Mr Hawes said.
Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery has confirmed a concession will allow workers to return to jobs in regional local government areas with one dose and a booking for their second in acknowledgement vaccines had been harder to procure during the rollout.
That concession does not apply to staff in health, aged care, education staff or police, and excludes the Central Coast.
IN THE NEWS:
Ms Hornery said it was only for staff.
"Businesses need simple, evidence-based resources for visitors to refer to at points of entry so that the terms of entry are clear," Mr Hawes said.
