I have never been in favour of that. The opposite. But we do need to shut down hot spots which is close contacts and second degree contacts. That is what happened here. But this guy ruined that principle completely. If the hot spot people don't follow the rules then the next thing to resort to is State shut downs. And no one wants that.Ah but what could be worse? This virus is so horrific we shut the country down. We can’t even consider going to WA because the virus once existed in some states.
I think my subtleties are being missed. The point I’m making is that it’s not a practical solution to lock people up when there’s nothing wrong with them at 30 seconds notice and to provide no support. It’s an action we use for criminals, not innocent people (who are supposedly so sick they’d need help) and we cannot expect a rational response from people.
Anyway my family is now concerned about it and will remain so until Wednesday. MrP reckons if I have it then he is already exposed but I am keeping my distance etc. If it happens unknowingly then there isn't anything I can do. I can not knowingly give it to anyone now. Shame that doesn't seem to be a principle shared by all.
Having said all that, I dont believe for a second I have it. Trying to convince the son is not working. DIL (GP) is very guarded. But it sure as heck confirmed my thought that masks should be mandatory and shopping very limited to essentials.
