Shadow Minister calls for 'trial reopening' to include the Illawarra


Shadow Minister for the Illawarra Ryan Park has today written to the NSW Premier demanding that the Illawarra be included in any plans to trial reopening across NSW.

Mr Park said that "Illawarra and South Coast business owners and workers have been hit particularly hard given the 20 months of COVID and the period before the pandemic where they were impacted by bushfires."

"Given Local Government Areas such as Wollongong have been included in the Greater Sydney catchment during the COVID restrictions it is only fair that business owners and workers be given the opportunity to be part of a possible trial reopening that the Government has under consideration."
