Yeh that's tough man. Has to be done though.In Melbourne we are in Stage 4 lockdown now and you not only have to justify your reason for continuing to work you need to carry a Vic Govt approved permit to travel outside of 5 kilometers from your home. There is also a must be at home by 8pm curfew in place and there are fines measured in the thousands of dollars for any breaches of the new rules.
Are masks mandatory?
If I was the premier I'd lock it all down hard and mandate masks.
I get it hits the economy and what not but it's the only way to do it. Just lock down hard and kill it.
People act like it's some forever thing. But while it would be difficult a solid super strict one month lock down would probably do wonders for suppression of the rona.
Same thing with masks. Just enforce them. I'm sick of people "I have a medical condition" bullshit. mask up or stay home. The same morons that claim they have a condition and can't wear are mask are usually the same muppets claiming that sick people or those at risk for the corona should stay home and the rest of us need to deal with it. Well if you're to sick to wear a mask you should be at home too!
Also for my 2 cents. I'd make the fines for breaking the rules far harsher as well. Those dumb cunts girls who went from Melb to goldie when they had the rona only got $4000 fine or something. that's far to low!! Would be at least $10,000 if I was in control and lying on the declaration forms then taking rona into another state would be about as clear a case for someone to be jailed as anything. Maybe not jailed but those girls should have been put on a 3 or 4 month house arrest with ankle monitors to make sure they don't leave again.
"the government is just revenue raising"... too right. The fines are in place to protect everyone and get the rona under control. If you want ot be a dickhead and breach them then hell yes we'll revenue raise the shit out of you!!.... I wouldn't be playing this slap on the wrist shitt.
For what it's worth, NSW is still doing better than Vic. But with the flare ups, I'd be all for mask mandates here as well.
