Tasmania is much more civilised. I received a phone call yesterday from a very well spoken private. He explained that they would shortly be in my area, checking to see if I was home. I gave him directions to our back gate, as the recent rain had made the official entry unpleasant. I drove down, when I saw them coming up the track. They sat in their vehicle, their side of the gate. I sat in mine and we had a chat. They didn't want to come in so I gave them advise as to the best spot to turn and offered to come down with a tractor if it didn't work out.
In my instance, it was the army, and I don't really believe they'd have been able to confirm much at all. The gate at which we met was on a bend so the two vehicles were not square on. This meant the reflection off windscreens was a factor. I could just make out two figures in the car and I can't imagine they had a much better view of me. Had there been two persons meant to be at home, they would have been able to confirm that, but not that it was the correct two persons.Just wonder for those in this position, would the police (from their car), know that there are supposed to be say 2 of you home, but you did not mention that one of you had gone off someplace?
I know that my brother and his wife fronted outside for the police. I don't know whether they were both requested to, but I imagine so.Just wonder for those in this position, would the police (from their car), know that there are supposed to be say 2 of you home, but you did not mention that one of you had gone off someplace?
I worry about this too. I also worry that the effects will linger for years in the way that many veterans suicide many years after the war they fought in.I worry that the continued lock downs for a possible period of six months will have many more deaths via suicide than the virus .
OMG three weeks ago I suggested to my husband that they might put lo-jacks on us when we arrived home.Criminals?
A very good article.Definitely should be read by many people even if to just give them some understanding of some of the reasons why people are feeling down with these restrictions.

Useful for those of you who may be struggling, or know others struggling; or even if you think there may be a chance that you'll be impacted at some point.
We had a test on a Friday, the office was closed. Went to office on Monday and after a 10am leadership meeting with our UK and Europe office, we were all sent home. Been 3 weeks already for most, week #4 for me.I wonder if more companies trial work from home perhaps one day a week to ensure that if necessary people have an infrastructure in place to slip into
My Dil did and is coping fairly ok with the transition to all days at home not just two a week
