Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters is calling on the Federal Government to provide urgent support to our local early learning sector.
“I’ve spoken with childcare providers across Central Victoria who are pleading for urgent support.
Stranded Central Victorians are increasingly desperate for clarity from the Morrison Government on how it is helping them get to safety.
With borders and airports closing, airlines cancelling services, and only five days of international Qantas and Virgin flights remaining, time is running out for Australians trying to follow the Government’s advice to come home.
Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters is reminding residents to think about the impact of abuse and violence on workers in the retail and fast food industries, as Central Victorians prepare for the impact of COVID-19.
“We are navigating a new and difficult situation with many unknowns and as stores manage stock levels, I’d like to remind local residents to be patient and show respect to staff,” Chesters said.
