Small Business Australia director Bill Lang said there was concern the snap lockdown could continue for longer than five days.

“There’s not a small business in the state that isn’t still in shock in coming to grips with the implications of this third lockdown,” he said.

Mr Lang said JobKeeper would not help small businesses that had lost money on produce, and he called for targeted support from the federal and state governments to reimburse the most affected businesses.
