I will be keeping a very close eye on Covid numbers until “freedom day” for the unjabbed, some time in December.
If the only people who are breathing and moving around outside of the home are double jabbed,
the Covid numbers should drop to virtually zero.
Watch this space.
In the meantime….a tough few months ahead for those who still refuse to cross the jab line.
Yesterday in Australia will be remembered as the day the segregation began. As of October 11, 2021, the rules below now apply to anyone over 16 who is not fully vaccinated.
On-the-spot fines of $1000 (individuals) and $5000 (businesses) will apply for non-compliance:
If you’re not fully vaccinated, you can’t visit another person’s home, except in limited circumstances (eg childcare, helping someone move, caring for someone). Visiting purely for social reasons is not permitted.
PLACES OF WORSHIP
If not fully vaccinated, you may not attend any place of worship.
If you’re not injected, you may visit only essential retail stores, eg supermarkets, hardware stores, laundromats, post offices etc (see list at Govt. link below). You may not visit non-essential retail stores.
If not fully vaccinated, you cannot go to a hairdresser. Nor can you visit a beauty salon or massage premises.
WEDDINGS & FUNERALS
Weddings of up to 100 people are now permitted. But if you’re not vaccinated, you may attend (or hold) a wedding of only 10 people: the couple, the celebrant and seven guests. Same with funerals: 100 vaccinated people now allowed – but the unvaccinated may attend funerals of only 10 people total.
You may not visit any cafe, pub, bar, food court, kiosk etc unless you are fully vaccinated.
TRAVELLING IN CARS
If you are not fully vaccinated you can travel in a car only with people you live with. You can travel with someone you don’t live with only if it is, for example:
* an emergency
* for a compassionate reason
* to provide care/assistance to a vulnerable person
* a taxi or rideshare
* required to use a vehicle for your work
Similar restrictions apply to boats.
HOLIDAYS & REGIONAL VISITS
If you are not fully vaccinated you cannot take a holiday outside your own local government area, eg if you live in the greater Sydney area, you can’t leave that region. You may not share a holiday home or short-term accommodation with anyone who is not from your household.
SPORT & EXERCISE
You can’t participate in group outdoor sport unless you’re vaccinated. You may exercise outdoors with just one other person. Vaccinated people may exercise with up to 20 people.
Up to 30 vaccinated people can participate in an outdoor gathering, eg for a picnic. If you are not fully vaccinated you can gather with only one other person or with your household.
Recreation facilities such as zoos, aquariums, sports stadiums, showgrounds, racecourses, motor racing tracks and theme parks are now open – but closed to the unvaccinated.
