Butchery owner says close contact exemption scheme is confusing

A butcher believes the new close contact exemption scheme raises more questions than answers.  

Under the scheme, critical business workers won't have to isolate if they're identified as a close contact at phase two of the Omicron outbreak. 

That's if they return daily negative rapid antigen tests. 

Businesses can go online now and apply if they think they meet the criteria. 

Westmere Butchery Owner Dave Rossiter told Mike Hosking the whole thing is confusing. 

“I’m trying to submit the online forms, which is nearly impossible.”
