I have no idea how Austrailia is doing as far as covid issues,
sad to say.
But people in my area are pretty much over it. We seem to be having
an uptick in cases over the last month, most folks either just "are sick"
or home test. Only a few even talk to Medical Personnel.
I checked the date of
the OP, thinking this was a year old.
Like I said, anyone with a mask is categorized as some city fool or a kook.
That said, we were at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh last week.
The hospital monopoly that owns it requires masks on everyone.
Wife and daughter knew that and found a dispenser, I completely
missed it. Not even on my radar. Seeing all those masks pissed
me off. They are never going to back off of that power to force
30 months ago we were told that only N95 masks had a chance of
possibly being effective. And yet 2 1/ years later they require folks to
put something, anything, over their face. Cheap paper, thin fabric....
There is absolutely no logical reason to do so.
And yet, with the exception of one hillbilly family I saw and myself,
not a single person seen over 3 hours didn't 100% comply.
Even watched 2 people sitting at a table drinking coffee, wearing masks.
Moving the darn thing for every single sip, then putting it back.
