A hospo boss says new government help doesn't go far enough.  

A targeted payment will help some businesses struggling with revenue loss due to Omicron. To be eligible, they must show a 40 percent drop in revenue, since moving to phase two.  

Lone Star Chief Operating Officer Paul Steiner told Kate Hawkesby while it's great there's support, it doesn't address the problem of staffing. 

“The bigger issue is the return to work for existing staff, the delays in testing, the inability to access rapid antigen tests et cetera.”
