Deja vu – In Lockdown Again
Just letting you know that where I am, my family and I are once again in a lockdown, this time for three days from midnight tonight. Our previous lockdown was three months ago. I had almost finished a couple of posts to make up for my tardiness of late, but they might need to wait for a bit longer.
This is the Anzac Day long weekend for us. So, many are heading away for the weekend, but can only do so now up until midnight tonight. It’s back on with masks from 6pm and staying at home, with many now conducting a driveway Dawn Service on 25 April 2021 instead of attending major services.
We have 9 full hotels in Perth that are dedicated to Aussies and other visitors returning to Western Australia from overseas and other places. However, it seems the hotels are a source of an outbreak, yet again. This time there has been community transmission.
We have been lucky previously, while watching much of the world struggle to deal with the pandemic. We have been able to do what we need to do because of good controls in place. Which is why we haven’t had to concern ourselves too much with a vaccination program that is way behind where it should be.
Hopefully, contact tracing will deliver a good result at the end of the three day lockdown and is not extended. We have become quite adept at the sudden lockdown and coping with it. For now, my mum is isolated at her home and Linda’s mum who was due to fly back into Perth from our state’s north after visiting Linda’s sister, husband and our niece, may need to stay where she is for the time being.
See you on the other side 😊
