Gippsland East Nationals MP Tim Bull has sought more detail from Government on the permit system that will operate to allow interstate travel.
This will be critically important for communities like Mallacoota, Bonang and Bendoc, as residents rely on services from over the border that do not exist in that local community.
These can be as wide ranging as medically related matters or trades related requirements.
Given this is likely to be in place for some time, it is important border residents know what they must do to obtain quick access to services they need.
It is frustrating that this decision seems to have been based on COVID cases in metropolitan areas, and those country people who live close to the border are now seemingly paying the price for the carelessness of some city residents.
