    went to coles supermarket just before and i had never seen a notice go out that they were following woolworths lead in closing early at 8pm

    and i got there at 7:56 and had to run around like a madman and grab a few things until i could go back out during the day tomorrow

    8pm is just too early to close in my opinion my wife finishes late and we are so used to going around 8pm on a Wednesday

    it was quite horrible i hope this panic buying slows down so this shopping stuff can go back to normal because this sucks

    i feel like we have to go to 10 different stores to get what we need because of low stock and limits which furthers both our exposure to more people, it seems really backwards if you ask me

    all our online shopping has been suspended as well for all places so you litterally have no choice

    all over Australia because they can't keep up with whats happening in store which means they can not fulfill orders for online orders as orders from our grocery super markets are filled from your local store and only some of the orders are filled by a warehouse but even the warehouse is too busy right now just trying to keep stock on shelves each day

    yesterday i drove past a supermarket near me at 5am to drop off my wife and i saw 6 semi trailers waiting to unload and this is not normal, usually they get 1 truck every 3 days and urgent stock is delivered by smaller trucks daily

    yep i was just about to post this myself, Australian borders will be closed from tomorrow at 9pm to NON residents and the PM URGES every Australian overseas even in remote places to come home IMEDIATLY

    @Oddsocks ... god bless mate and lets get through this the aussie way

    The PM has reiterated that our reality has changed, saying Australians will have to "behave differently" for up to "six months".

    "I understand people are anxious. But for the next six months we need to work together. So we do need to moderate our behaviour and understand things need to change. Life is not like it was before.

    Thanks everyone for trying to answer yesterday when I asked if officials have identified what exactly is the main source of transmission that caused the cluster outbreak at that Australia wedding and other clusters.

    There were some good thoughts on why the clusters are breaking out although I wish officials and scientists would prove exactly what caused them and then publish that information in the same articles about certain cluster outbreaks. We seldom see the official root cause report of why each main cluster happened. If each cluster has an official proven determined root cause, it would be nice to have that list somewhere.

    I think its important that the officials prove each cluster's source so they can prevent other cluster outbreaks.

    a place for all Websleuth Australians to post about Covid-19 and information from Australia


    Ten Americans on SA wine tour test positive

    Ten people from a US tour group were among 17 new positive coronavirus cases in South Australia, the biggest single-day jump so far since the emergence of the pandemic.

    The tourists are part of a larger group of 18 from the US who are all now in isolation at their accommodation in the Barossa Valley, north of Adelaide. None have so far required hospital treatment but chief public health officer Nicola Spurrier said that could change.

    More than 150 sick passengers left Sydney coronavirus cruise

    More than 150 people who fell sick on a recent cruise that docked in Sydney were allowed to disembark with no order to self-isolate, it has been reported.

    The Ruby Princess docked in Sydney on Thursday with at least four passengers subsequently testing positive for COVID-19. Two of those flew from Sydney to Darwin, upping the Northern Territory's coronavirus figures.

    Authorities are now urging the remaining 4000 passengers to go into lockdown.

    More a personal note, this year my aussie family planned to visit Europe for the first time after like 40years, this was a combined business and private trip. Now all is for sure cancelled, makes my cousin so sad in addition to the fear how the crisis will develop around her.

    Queensland will close its borders as the state government moves to stop the spread of coronavirus.
    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said her cabinet made the decision on Monday after the state confirmed 60 more cases of the disease, taking its tally to 319.
    At a press conference earlier on Monday, the premier said people should “stay in their suburb” during holidays.

    My son and his gf live in Brisbane, the local elections as of today are still going ahead this Saturday!
    Closing borders but having masses of people file into polling booths, voting with cardboard dividers between people which can't be cleaned, given 'how to vote' cards and slips of paper to vote, it should be postponed! Too late for postal voting, phone line for voting is constantly engaged!

    Elderly people will turn up and risk contracting the virus! ECQ advice, bring your own pencil! :mad: o_O

    Thousands of cruise ship passengers told to self-isolate due to coronavirus days after disembarking

    Passengers from a recently arrived cruise ship in Sydney spent four days in the community before they received NSW government advice to self-isolate due to a positive coronavirus detection.
    Now federal and state government ministers are blaming each other for how cruise arrivals have been handled.

    Four cruise ships docked in Sydney last week, each with passengers who later tested positive for coronavirus
    Passengers on board two of the vessels said there were no health checks

    Three thousand people got off a cruise ship in Sydney last week. Four days later they were told to self-isolate


    :rolleyes: :(
