Until lockdowns “become a thing of the past” the event industry cannot plan ahead without the government providing cancellation insurance.
PM Morrison said today that he believes the vaccine rollout will be essentially complete by the end of the year.
“By the end of the year we will be in that position, where everybody who has had the opportunity will have had it,” he says.
This means lockdowns will “become a thing of the past” by Christmas, he says.
“I would expect by Christmas that we would be seeing a very different Australia to what we are seeing now … lockdowns become a thing of the past when you are at that level.
“That gets us a roadmap to Christmas, I think, which means we will be living life different at Christmas than we are now.”
