If you just launch the state app, then it doesn't matter how old your phone is as log as it has a camera. There is no time saving opening camera first, in fact it slows things down as it ends up launching the app anyway.

QLD 2 covid cases on the loose + 1 in HQ from Melbourne, oh the dangers....... surely surely WA to close right away, been great while it lasted.
How long was it?? ha.

37 seconds 😂

And I’m glad - because it makes the WA Gov look like fools every time it goes up down up down and just builds more resentment against them = pressure to speed up their woeful vaccination program 😂

HIGH ALERT.

Please let this get our slow vaccination rates up….

It’s going to keep spilling over the border…

——

Qld on high alert over two new local virus cases​


Of those cases, one is an unvaccinated 17-year-old from the Gold Coast who presented to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a headache before being diagnosed with the virus.

He is understood to be a close contact of someone who travelled from NSW, with investigations underway into how that person crossed the border into Queensland.

The second case is a woman in her 30s from Melbourne.

A truck driver from Gympie has also contracted the virus, though he tested positive in NSW and has been included in their figures.

The truck driver travelled to Bundaberg while infectious.

A funny story I heard way back. An older mother asked her daughter what she should do with all the photos she’d taken of all the various QR code’s.
I saw a strange interaction where an older person swiped a QR code with a credit card at a doctor’s surgery, then sit in waiting area to be called

Unless it spreads and causes a lockdown it is unlikely to get vax rates up. Qlders have dodged so many "bullets" they think they are invincible.

Or just plain diligence and self-interest. The 2 Bunnings I go to here in sthn Tas are also diligent in checking the checkin-ing. But contrary to experience in a comment a few posts above, folk here are very good at using the QR codes, notwithstanding no local cases for a year or more (no scares). And if they initially forget, there are prompts to remind them. Server at a restaurant will ask one or two times if everyone at a table has checked in ... the gym supervisor will periodically ask people in the gym if they have checked in ... etc. QR code signs throughout a premesis, not just at entrance.
Over here in Perth I continue to check in at most places, and I see others checking in as well. All the big places like Bunnings and supermarkets, and definitely restaurants and pubs. And doctors’ offices. Not so much every little shop in a centre where you might stoop for only to browse, Definitely at airport and entering Qantas lounge, who check its being done.

Here’s an interesting one… just booked a hotel in Coffs Harbour and received an email telling me I needed to show a negative covid test taken within 48 hours or they won’t check me in 🙄

Hello free PDF editor.

Ridiculous.

I'm booked in for The Coughs Harbour for early December, but through a private accomodation Vrbo, like AirBnB, no mention of any covid test, not even a need to be double juiced.

Private, no reception, but obviously still mixing with other guests at times, common pool etc.

This is getting ridiculous. This is going to bankrupt all of the states with the continued PCR test costs. NSW has spent more than a billion I believe.

Just found the costs: Private pathology companies receive a Medicare subsidy of $85 per test and public laboratories receive a benefit of $42.50.

RATs cost $10. Surprise surprise - the Royal Australian College of Pathologists is opposed to the use of RATs.

Buy Laverty/Sonic shares asap...

I think you missed the boat for Sonic and Laverty is owned by Healius - wouldn't bother with them at all
