And still people don’t get it. Local pub in the West advertising $3 pints from 9am til midday when they have to close. Good pub I’ve frequented plenty over 20+ years with good people, but this is just ******* stupid as.

Small businesses are in full panic mode, understandable in these times.

For those who are dislodged from work set up your MyGov account and make a claim through there, albeit it has crashed this morning, that will be the best way to get "into the line".

sorry to hear that mate, hope things can return to normal in a coupel weeks


Minimum month isn’t it?


Gyms are well known as a good place to spread germs but the one we go to (F45) has changed their whole system to cater for coronavirus. It's circuit style training but instead of moving stations after every set they changed it to doing all sets at one station, then a minute to sanitise the station you're on (disinfectant & wiping materials supplied) & then move to the next station. Felt very safe to me. Luckily for the wife, daughter & I, my son is one of the trainers there & a fully qualified PT, so we'll be doing home sessions for the time being.

My F45 suspended membership for 4 weeks as of this morning.

Also hasn't the franchise released an at home workout?

Agree mate.

Ironic bottle o's can remain open but a place that looks to improve your health mentally and physically whilst also building your immune system as a natural secondary benefit gets shut down.

I know it's probably trivial but don't know what I'll do with myself for the next few months! I'm going to drive people on SAFooty nuts!
I'll probably be offered work at a BWS or Dan Murphys but the missus doesn't want me to take it as she's got immune deficiency issues as does my daughter. The missus will be working from home too.
Luckily money isn't an issue and I really feel for those that it will be. Am I too old to get back into online gaming? Do I have the attention span/patience to read some books? Will I survive with no sport?
Weird times. :?

Just had an interesting experience with posty... saw there was a package so went outside only to be told to "get back! Right back, im serious" (nothing agressive or anything just firm)
Then they put package on ground and didnt make me sign.
The new norm i guess!

My gym just posted that they aren't eligible for any Govt. support, which is sad given they have no choice but to shut :(
