While the government has forced the closure of a lot of business, those that can stay open have been left feeling confused about whether they can shut down.
Phinc owner Tracey Togni said the sooner the government shut everything down the better, but on Wednesday she decided to shut the door of her shop even though she didn't have to.
"It just didn't feel right to stay open," she said.
Ms Togni made that decision despite having been told that businesses who voluntarily close when they have not been ordered to shut will cut themselves off from any government financial assistance.
"I don't know what's going on there," she said.
On Monday, Ms Britnell said businesses were being told that if they shut without being ordered to they were going to be having implications with unfair dismissal.
"They're very confused about that. That's the legal advice I'm told they're getting," she said.
on Wednesday Ms Britnell said there was still a lot of uncertainty at the moment and there needed to be more clarity for businesses.
"Businesses that have closed but remain an active business are still eligible for the Federal Government's boosting cash flow for employers package, but there is still little clarity about the state government's $500 million business support fund which is still simply asking businesses to register their interest to get more information when it's released," Ms Britnell said.
"There is no timeline for that. In this time of uncertainty and of forced closures, small business owners need to know what support is available to them so they can make the best decision for their business and their staff."
Ms Togni said that she had hoped that by today all non-essential shops would be shutting.
"It's silly," she said.
"I just want it to get into lockdown so that we can get it started so we can move on quicker.
"The sooner that we go in and take action the better. We don't want it to spread any more. The essential businesses need to stay open but I don't believe clothing is an essential business.
"We're not making sales now. I'm just paying expenses at the moment.
"We've had a couple of people in the shop looking but mainly people coming in to pick up laybys really."
Ms Togni said people were confused. "People don't know whether they should be coming down the street or not," she said.
"It's just confusing, people don't know what to do.
"No one's about. It's like a ghost town. Last night when I went to close it felt like Christmas Eve, you know when everyone's gone home and you're the only one still doing things."
Ms Togni said she was now working from home and she was putting her efforts into the online side of her business.
