Sophie Cotsis: Government must provide better QR code support for local businesses


Labor is calling on the Government to support businesses in establishing QR code check-in systems and COVID safety plans in the lead up to Christmas.
The Shadow Minister for Better Public Services Sophie Cotsis said Premier Gladys Berejiklian continues to condemn businesses who have not implemented QR codes as a condition of entry without providing any support to those who may need it.
“We support the need for all hospitality venues to have QR code check-in systems and COVID safety plans in the lead up to the busiest time of year but the Government has to assist rather than threaten NSW businesses,” Ms Cotsis said.

“Small businesses are already trying to do their part and the Government needs provide them with clear instructions and in some cases more hands on assistance for those who are less tech-savvy.”
Ms Cotsis also said she was concerned the Government has overlooked people in the community who don’t have smartphones for QR code sign-ins.
“Victor Dominello has to take more leadership in helping the many businesses and citizens who need assistance in adopting the code system,” she said.
“The Government must act now to ensure the community is protected from COVID-19 while keeping venues open during Summer and securing jobs in the hospitality sector.”
