    A lot of talk about Australia not doing a good enough job with social distancing
    According to modelling 70% isnt good enough, 80% is decent, 90% is excellent

    Obviously, my limited sample is not a good representative, but I dont know/heard anyone breaking the rules,

    Cant imagine anyone breaking rules deliberately unless its certain sections of the community

    Rules broken are
    - social distancing,
    - self isolation after travel
    - opening businesses that are supposed to closed

    (Note, poor hygiene is technically not illegal)

    My brother got back from overseas recently, i put a ladder up to his bedroom verandah and he went to his room that way.
    He has been in his room for a week now, we bring the food outside his verandah so he doesnt have to ever open his door leading into the house.
    We only use disposable cups/plates to reduce potential contact.
    Maybe we are over doing its but better safe than sorry, it helps him that his job was already set up to be done remotely if necessary.
    People need to take this seriously, it might not be deadly to some but if our health system gets overwhelmed thats when it gets really bad.

    What gets me angry is that, as of yesterday more than 50% of the confirmed cases (and virtually all deaths if im not wrong) are all related to people who have travelled or come in contact with them,
    yet all we hear on the news is cruise liner passengers let off here and there, incoming passengers crammed into immigration queues, self isolation not been done by incoming passengers that are required to

    I think it could be a combination of deliberate and also unknowingly. Observed neighbours across the road. The couple are of my vintage (very late 60's :(). Up rolls grandkids and carry one as if nothing is untoward. Whether it was due to a deliberate decision or plain ignorance I don't know.

    Go get a morning coffee and while standing well away from anyone observing a supermarket. Pensioner hour and all waiting to go in were at a respectful distance. Barista said "Watch what happens." Sure as. As soon as the appointed time came to enter, all those waiting converged in a herd together.

    My nephew is getting married next weekend. It was up on a property with caterers bringing in food. They'd hired porta-bathrooms. The reception was postponed until later in the year, but the marriage was going ahead. With new rules, they are allowed five people including bride, groom and celebrant. That means my brother and the bride's father can attend as witnesses. Nobody else.

    But I'm meant to vote this weekend. It's stupid. What about social distancing.

    We won't be voting. I know my MIL cannot get through to telephone vote, so I might try that today, but otherwise, we just won't vote.

    We did go to vote early but that voting place had about 30 people lining up. My son just went to Mt Gravatt early voting and there were 50m lines of people queueing. I told him to go home and don't bother.

    How can we have a limit of five people at a wedding and still allow a queue 50m long to vote?

    Yes... I saw that. The rules need to be more logical. No wonder people are confused.

    Take along a coffin and you can have five more. A boot hill camp.

    It’s an absolute joke, It should be postponed. The lack of forethought is only surpassed by NSW Health allowing thousands of cruise ship passengers to create havoc in Sydney.

    Premier's response to suspending the elections was something like "It's the same as going to the supermarket"

    I'm pretty sure I can manage to suspend my vote for 6 months.

    May struggle not going to Coles/Woolies for 6 months..

    There's no rule to say you can't have a boot camp at the same time & place as a wedding. Invite 10 guests, tell them to wear active wear & do some stretches while the ceremony goes on.

    I'd say it's because people are generally a lot more kissy/huggy at weddings (and funerals), hence the tighter restrictions.

    But ten people are allowed at funerals, five at weddings.
