People will be flying in from across Australia and the world. Not everyone goes to every test match. Adelaide hosts the only day/night test match.
To be fair, if Perth shifts east they're also looking at doing a day night test to emulate what Perth would have been like .. odd, but yeah.

Who knows with these clowns. Apparently debate was quite heated yesterday and I think Marshall knows if we are shut at Christmas his goose is cooked. I’ve given up trying to understand it

Ok, I'm sorry but the SA CHO now tops our booted out QLD CHO for plain crazy..... you are now the crazy state! Passing the crown over!

You guys need to get rid of her. Stat.

They have lost the plot, and they only had a slim grasp on it to begin with...

It’s not her that’s the issue, it’s the Commissioner pulling the strings

Oh, sorry, forgot his scientific medical research training. What a useful perspective he must have on the new variant.

Seriously? Is this really happening again...?

There are three making the decision - usually the SA Police Commissioner is the tie breaker lol

Just with a friend who had a phone call from her daughter in tears - was supposed to come to Adelaide from Vic on Monday with the family. FFS
I’m still hoping by some miracle that the powers to be don’t come to that decision tomorrow and that they hold their nerve.

Booked straight away to go check out Coffs Harbour. Previously unable to travel as essential worker and can't wait test result without taking additional time off (extremely difficult at the moment...).

MEL-CFS-MEL with dormant VA travel bank. $105 each way and free Platinum upgrade to Business used on both flights as well...super value. Something to look forward to in a couple weeks!
Great! I'm off to Coffs too!

Actually no - it appears it is your CHO who again has stolen the crazy crown from QLD. Please accept it gracefully 🤪🤦‍♂️.

She needs to go the way of the one way exit doors, like ours. It’s the only way… Actually, now the QLD CHO has gone she is the least qualified in the country by training, Dr Ron can check that!

These state border wars have to stop.

Chief public health officer Professor Nicola Spurrier has twice in the past week requested borders be closed again but no changes were made.

It's insanity. What the F did they think would happen when they opened, why did they say We got this, Spurrier said we have to change the mind shift but now they've lost their bloody nerve. Maybe if we get slammed with cases they will give up on this nonsense. There is only one person on the transition committee whose focus is anything but completely health and let's say, there will be very terse words.

I had heard yesterday that the SA border was very close to being shut and it took some last minute wrangling for Marshall to keep it open but this afternoon I was told it could potentially close on the weekend and that the Commissioner and Spurrier are angling for it to close

'The Advertiser' and 'The Australian' this morning confirm your fears.:


"The South Australian government could shut its borders with NSW, Victoria and the ACT within days, as health officials reportedly contemplate a return to hard borders.

SA health authorities will meet today to consider a major crackdown on borders over Omicron fear..."

---------------
This is just lunacy.

The cost of closing state borders is massive compared to any 'benefits'.

Mediocrity from State Premiers, although the leaders with that are Andrews with his draconian legislation, McGowan and Palaszczuk, not that Masrhall and Gutwein are much better.

Reading adelaidenow comments they are very angry that the three stooges might do this. Reading SA Health FB its more like the doona brigade by 2/3. Already emailed Marshall expressing my disgust and embarassment at being a South Australian. Not that it matters a jot.

Actually she is the CHO with probably the most training. She is a qualified Paediatrician with a few papers on asthma in children. She is also a qualified public Health Physician and has a graduate diploma in Epidemiology.
But there is no training unfortunately in common sense.

LOL most relevant training I should have said.

Lord help SA. They actually could become the new WA, because WA won’t reopen to them - they will be completely isolated if they do this….
