Stop the state of origin in newcastle

We are a covid free region that has escaped lockdown due to the diligence of our community.  

a super spreading event such as this should not be held in NSW. We have seen the results and transmission that 1 covid case can destroy a huge area and number of people. 

Our local tourism industries and local businesses have all seen a decline in sales due to the greater Sydney lockdown but if we host the state of origin and just 1 case of covid or close contact comes as a result of the state of origin and we end up in a lockdown this will devastate these businesses. 

If the state of origin has to be played then it should be in a locked venue with no spectators or fans allowed at all. 

This is not a reward for good work by the hunter community this is punishment and the community should not stand by and accept this. 
If we want our freedoms to remain intact and our friends and family members to remain safe then we must stand together and be heard. 

One day of revenue is not worth the public health risk. This state is on the brink of a crisis and it is hugely dangerous and irresponsible to allow such a non essential event. 

this will effect us all. Our families. Our community. our businesses
