How does JobKeeper work for my staff?

My business is in the health industry with a multi-disciplinary natural medicine clinic.  Some of my staff are casual and some are contractors.  It has been very confusing working out who is eligible and who is not.  Also knowing how much tax to take out and do we need to pay them before we get the money from the government? I feel responsible for my staff but with my business currently closed and no income, how do I pay them?
