Covid-19: No support coming for tourism businesses hit by bubble pause - Jacinda Ardern

From Morning Report, 7:15 am on 28 June 2021

Tourism businesses, suffering due to the pause in the Australia travel bubble, will not be eligible for any government assistance.

The Australian school holidays start today and are traditionally one of the busiest times of year for operators here.

However the pause of the New South Wales bubble, followed by the stopping of all flights from anywhere in Australia, has led to thousands of cancelations.

The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, told Morning Report there would be no financial assistance for these businesses.
