We are in mega-ultra-super lockdown here in suburban Sydney. It is a lot less fun than you would think it would be.
Keep safe and well everyone.

We're all good down here on the far south coast and have been for over 12 months, but as Cosmo says, only a matter of time.

Has any member on here actually had it or someone in their circle of friends?

We are doing alright here on the Mid North Coast of NSW near Taree. No real restrictions and only need to wear a mask when in shops or other businesses and of course sign in as well, no big deal. The only thing upsetting the apple cart is deliveries out of Sydney and Brisbane to this area. I have no idea why as the guy across the road drives interstate mainly NSW - Qld and has little trouble crossing the borders but try and get orders delivered here  is like pulling teeth. It also may be that some places are simply slack and cannot be bothered.
We have canned a short holiday over in the New England district but will wait a little while before doing it becasue things change so fast with restricted areas cropping up and the one at Orange district was a bit close for us to want to take the chance so will continue working here.

I'm glad I don't live down south. YES I know what it is like as I know people down that way as my home town is Wollongong
Here in Townsville we have had no cases WHY? Last year we had a big boxing match, football games the V8s for two races and a number of other events
This year again football matches and the big game NSW verses QLD 20,000 people no masks etc and there was people for all over come from NSW and again the V8s for two races and other event and still no virus cases WHY?
The number of people from VIC and NSW up here is amazing they are everywhere pushing up rents and buying up our homes, the prices are up never been so high  with some going over $1 million which is not normal for here
The people and freight movement through Townsville is high as you have to come here to go elsewhere and still no virus cases
Then the big on a woman cam up from Brisbane with the Delta Virus roamed around Magnetic Island and Townsville for about 5 days result we had to wear mask for two weeks and have a 3 day lock down and still no virus case
We have had 1.5 years to get a case, Townsville is not a small town we have 200,000  people but  no virus cases WHY ???
