Patron caps are unworkable say Gippsland hospitality venues

There is pressure on the state government to lift the very low density caps for hospitality venues.

Under the current Covid restrictions, hospitality businesses in Gippsland can only have 10 patrons inside and 20 seated outside, which operators say they just can't make money from.

Eastern Victoria MP Melina Bath said some local restaurant and pub owners are not even opening, leaving many casual staff still out of work, even after the lifting of the lockdown.

The caps are just a fraction of the capacity of many venues, she said.

“The Andrews Government must allow the hospitality industry to trade using patron density limits and deliver a more workable, viable and fair-trading solution, Ms Bath said.”
