Mr PEARSON (Essendon)- It has been quite a week, and with businesses opening up all over Melbourne, today is quite a day. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to our state, our country and our world, and it has been such a difficult time. We are all excited about taking a step outside as a community and supporting businesses as they reopen. We will be cautious, safe and cognisant of the health advice of our experts. We will hold on tightly to this COVID normal we are building, and we will honour, remember and rebuild what has been lost.
