Like all roadmaps, we need to execute and stick to it to ensure its success. There may need to be some changes to what we have prescribed, but let’s use this as the baseline for hope and to get the conversation started.

We support the use of automated vaccination certification with QR code check-in.

We now ask the State Government to help us finish this race against COVID-19 with a roadmap out of lockdown. All businesses stand ready to work with the State to support the roadmap we have proposed so we can get off the COVID-19 treadmill.
