NSW on friday had 20 new cases....today 11 new cases...hopefully we have a handle on it.

Be proactive...stop Sydney people leaving Sydney....sometimes the earlier they enforce things the better. Victoria didn't....surely they should learn from past mistakes....???

If people won't comply with the restrictions, it will get away.

There are just not enough resources to provide the enforcement necessary to effectively contain the spread via policing....

Too many selfish numbskulls that just don't get it.....

Possibly the most under utilised rule we should have.

I think the whole of Vic should be on stage 4. Except maybe extend the 5km rule in rural ares. Prevention being better than the cure. Alot of us have been doing the right thing from the very start of this pandemic and all those sacrifises have been for little or nothing because of those self entitled f..k wits. People have lost jobs, bussinesses and livelyhoods and may never recover. This extended lockdown is killing people in more ways than just covid. Forced quarantine followed by jail time for non comformers. It's time to get tough.

Dan did enforce quarantine for returning travellers, which is where the current infections have come from, but unlike other states Dan decided to use the lowest cost private contractors, and the rest is history. It's too far gone now and stage 4 won't stop it, the people who didn't follow the rules last time aren't suddenly going to follow the rules now. Look at the modelling from overseas, no country has been able to stop/slow it once it it widespread. We now get an out of control virus and a destroyed economic outlook.

It should also have been applied to all that returned a positive result, not just returning travellers.

Should have monitored all positive results while numbers were low enough.

Zero tolerance for those that didn't properly self-isolate....straight to forced quarantine.

Too late now.....

Better pray for an effective vaccine.

Without one, the lockdown will be all for nowt.

The virus will be waiting for us on the other side....

Out of self isolation for the 3rd time now. Go to do the shopping. Short time out and found 3 morons.
1st one, no mask (cough cough). I have a condition (cough cough). I don't need to wear a mask (cough cough). BullShit I have to line up to get into the supermarket (cough cough). Supermarket is big enough for all of us (cough cough). We're all paying for this BLM, Black lives matters bullShit (cough cough). Don't think she seen the couple at the counter happened to be dark skinned, maybe she did. He turned around and looked but kept his cool. She was a small woman, obviously with a small brain and a small intelligence. Got dressed up to go out shopping in her tracky dacks  and her moccasins. Didn't notice if she had a smoke resting on her ear.
2nd and 3rd. Standing face to face, did have masks. 2nd, they told me I had to get tested, get up there now and get tested, so I've just got tested. 3rd, yes I've was told the same, I've just been.  Must be some reason for them both to be tested ASAP. But then after being tested both go shopping. All 3 were older people. This is not the first time I've seen this happening.

Received a message from a colleague, his neighbour was fined $200 for not wearing a mask when bringing his bins in this morning, this is in Mitcham VIC.

Seriously that is ridiculous.

Queensland Gov has earned itself $5.2M in Corona virus fines so far.

Maybe now VIC Gov wants to go one better... ::)

Fine for walking your bins out to the road with no mask yet the Qld government AND the NRL think that the 3000 people all sitting shoulder to shoulder is ok  ??? ???
Wonder what $$ are involved for letting the football go ahead between the government and the NRL?

Funny you say that I had this uneasy feeling this morning walking from front door of house 4 steps across the deck, down 3 steps and 4 steps to the car door...

Victoria Police revealed 172 infringements had been issued in the past 24 hours to people who flouted the chief health officer's stay-at-home directives $1652 ea?

They gotta make back the millions somehow....

Then you read another story (there was another pokemon fool last week!!)

There are so many situations like this... mind blowing. Thus lots of confusion.. Why have furniture stores and massive shopping centers been open all this time when its supposed to be only going out for work, food, exercise etc.

I agree with the 1 rule - just stop piss farting around and do it.

Team. at this time there are some hard times ahead, can we keep the thread on track and not attack anyone. I have just deleted a number of threads, sorry to those that have been effected.

On a serious note to all in Victoria, keep safe and as most of you are stay safe. Talk to your mates and loved ones and ride out the times. Times will be tough and some of us are going to be hit harder than others. Stay strong and all in all stay as safe as you can

 For those in other states, learn from Vic, i would encourage you to wear a mask when out in public, and also keep up the social distancing. Things are about to get really scary down here with the lockdown and closures of business.
