    The view from my "office"

    Hotel quarantine in BNE. I try at all times to only see the river.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I am currently in HQ in QLD. I applied for an entry permit into QLD and duly flew in. They offer quarantine in BNE or CNS. There were also a few people on the plane with me who travelled to my hotel to stay overnight before taking onward flights overseas. This case is particularly infuriating...

    General Coronavirus chit chat thread - non-travel specific

    Currently in HQ and apart from gaining weight at a rapid pace, no apparent mental health issues. :)

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Really, if you'd been kicked as much as Victoria has in the last year and treated like lepers because of things that are out of your control, you'd be defensive too. We are treated as if it's somehow "our fault" when for 99.99% of us the only thing we've done wrong is choose to live in Vic...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    This is very similar to what I got yesterday MEL-BNE - flight left at 1420, so I guess I should just be happy with getting what was touted as "hot meal" because the stress of getting ready to leave to go into quarantine up here made me nauseous and meant I only had a few mouthfuls of food all...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I REALLY don't understand why diplomats are exempt from HQ - or even getting tested. Makes no sense if we are aiming for covid-zero.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Wait, so where did this other variant come from? And you can hardly blame the officials for interrogating people on arrival after the number of people who have been selfishly breaking the travel rules.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    This week there have been messages on the Pleb line that there's a long wait and if you aren't flying within 24hrs to call back when you are. (I can't see how this would help the airline's forward planning but I digress...) Today there was an option for callback, which I took, and lo and...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I don't see how you can blame contact tracing for this. The fault lies squarely at the feet of Case 5 and he, quite frankly, should be taken straight to jail when he recovers from Covid.

    Are you Going to use the COVIDsafe App?

    The software IS a POS. Otherwise everyone would still have it on their phones! I uninstalled it because it kept interrupting the bluetooth signal to my headphones which was infuriating even without the battery drain.

    Are you Going to use the COVIDsafe App?

    Saw the Health Minister get asked directly at today's presser if the covidsafe app had been any use in the current outbreak and he said with a sardonic smile "No." Then amended it to "Not to my knowledge" But yeah, another useless POS.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I don't understand why the staff in the age care facilities were not wearing PPE when it's still a requirement for staff in hospitals - unless alone in your office or eating or drinking obvs. Surely, SURELY an age care home is as critical as a hospital when it comes to needing to protect...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Trust me, the testing labs are running 24/7. It may be that because of the lockdowns last year that there are far more testing sites in Melbs (list here Department of Health and Human Services Victoria | COVID-19 testing sites) and they do not see the need to keep any open 24/7. In fact, I'd...

    @Bundy Bear my doctor retired last year, which was a disaster for me. However, I asked my friends for a recommendation and my new GP is super awesome.

    Standing ovation. Really struggling right now and to keep on hearing that it's somehow our fault here in Melbourne is really getting old.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    This guy should be charged with reckless endangerment and sent to jail - with a manslaughter charge if anyone dies. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS.

    Marvel Stadium. The absolute worst because of the way you get funnelled in and out of there in huge tightly packed crowds through narrow spaces. :( Lockdown inevitable.
