We’ve had our right of choice and to have control over our daily lives ripped out of our hands in the past two years.
Now, with more than 93 per cent of Victorians fully-vaccinated and hospitalisations for COVID on the decline, we deserve the chance to get back to normal life.
While the State Labor Government continues to arrogantly impose handbrakes on our freedoms – against the advice of medical experts – The Nationals are proposing a common sense, safe way forward.
We believe there’s five changes that will immediately put families, businesses and local communities on the path to recover and rebuild.
With contact tracing no longer occurring, QR Code check-in requirements should be suspended for low-risk settings.
Further, density limit rules should be removed for hospitality and entertainment so they can welcome back more Victorians.
We believe more people will start planning a weekend away and spending in our local towns if they can be confident we won’t be thrown back into lockdown.
That’s why we’ve committed to no more lockdowns. No ifs. No buts. No more lockdowns.
Labor must match this commitment, as well as ruling out imposing a booster mandate for the general Victorian community.
Regional Victorians can be trusted to continue to do the right thing – for themselves, their families and their communities.
We have all done what has been asked of us and it’s now time to allow all Victorians to recover and rebuild so we can make Victoria Number One again.
