When you think things are starting to go back to normal in the Byron Shire after 18 months of this global pandemic, you awake to a Sydneysider with his two teenage children, positive with Sars-COV-2 and travelling around the region looking to buy property.
Does this person have no commonsense? Are they just really stupid? Thanks to him people’s health and lives are jepordised with this selfish act. I guess we have the state government to thank for its wording – by not using ‘lockdown’ and instead opting for the less dramatic wording of a ‘Stay at Home Order’. The rest of the states and territories used the word ‘lockdown’ – why can’t our State government?
I think we know why, it’s not to hard to work out. That’s why the coronavirus case numbers in NSW are out of control. No one in these hotspots is wanting to listen to the government when they aren’t using the right wording.
With this current situation affecting the Shire we know it will probably not be the last. Fingers crossed that people will start learning.
