Australia - overseas returnees enforced isolation

Recommended Posts

Yes....it has come to this.

 

I have been utterly staggered by the behaviour of two of my friends who have left it to the very last moment to return even tho' I told them repeatedly that this would probably happen.

 

At least for the moment the old world has gone..perhaps we should not have criticised it so much?

Why 'utterly staggered' ? ... a bit of 'pearl-clutching' here surely? this measure is no big deal ...

They were the one's that were complaining...

Yesterday  - all incoming passengers (of all nationalities) were told to go home and self-isolate for 14 days ... some didn't ... there were penalties for non-compliance 

 

Today  - all incoming passengers (of all nationalities) are told to go into government-funded hotels and the like and self-isolate for 14 days ... most will ... there are penalties for non-compliance

 

imo your friends are cute, their self-isolation period is now Oz government subsidised and they are staying (in some cases) in prime Sydney locations and they are being closely observed by trained personnel who will know how to react if they show symptoms (shoot them!!! just kidding)

And media reports indicate that movement from arriving airport to assigned hotel will be strictly monitored by the ADF (Australian Defense Forces) and whilst they are in the assigned hotel. Good news.

Sorry, please accept my apologies, i thought when you said "I have been ..."  ... that you were referring to yourself (being "utterly staggered").

 

Re-reading your post more closely, of course it is now obvious that "I" in fact refers to your friends, and not you.

 

I hardly know where to put myself [fans self with canasta scorecard]

Yup, his pals get pollie-grade security in crime-ridden Sydney too. But sadly the ADF aren't actually armed, so maybe they'll be utterly staggered all over again when they learn that. My oh my.

Ha..ha..ha..I am like Yossarian as I am saving my missions up-"Thanks" will only come when Col. Cathcart stops raising the number of conspiracy theories-which he is very unlikely to do.

With special thanks to my old pal Juvenal.
