Michael Smith started this petition to NSW Government

A decision to ease or extend restrictions will be made on data from a Thursday.  Any announcement will be made on Friday morning.  If there is a decision to ease, delaying that easing to midnight means that people from affected areas will be unable to travel that weekend.  The impact on regional areas that rely on tourism as a result is dramatic.  Thousands of accommodation bookings cancelled, meaning tens of thousands of fewer tourists in those centres and towns as a result.  That's millions in lost business revenue for those already on the brink.  It's a small change that arguably won't have any impact on the health situation - but will have a dramatic impact on the mental health and financial well being of regional NSW.

If data says we can't lift then this point is moot - it's only relevant if a decision to ease is made, and those few hours will make a major difference to those that need every but if help they can get.

Thanks for considering - and thanks for you continued support of regional NSW - we looking forward too seeing you soon
