Prime Minister Scott Morrison has urged Australians to ‘keep the tension in the cord’ over the Easter long weekend.
“This Easter weekend will be incredibly important. Stay at home. Failure to do so this weekend would completely undo everything we have achieved together,” Morrison said.
“You must follow these very helpful and straightforward requests we make of you.”
The government has repeated the messaged to cancel travel plans for the school holidays in the last few weeks, despite the destination.
It was also announced that commercial tenants and landlords are now eligible for the new Job Keeper scheme for businesses who turnover $50million or less.
During the pandemic, landlords must not terminate, and in turn, tenants must not terminate the lease either.
