The problem is we’re in a period where there’s a lot of people who have had to work through this coronaviral pandemic,” he told AM.”
It’s a really tough situation, and I think we’ve got to work together as a community to get us through this.

Mr Barr has been working with the Northern Territorians Government to set up a coronavirecent team to work with community groups and other stakeholders to provide more support and advice to those affected.
