Ballina Shire Council defs not a ‘boys’ club’, says outgoing female councillor

This person is claiming that the council is a 'boys'' club and that the out-going mayor is one of them.

Southern Cross University has announced they have temporarily closed their doors of the Lismore campus owing to a staff member testing positive for COVID-19.

Officials at the university say they will be closed until Tuesday 5 October to allow deep cleaning and to assist NSW Health with contact tracing.

It is believed the staff member was unknowingly exposed off-campus last Friday to another person associated with the current Kyogle cluster. After attending work at the university on Monday and Tuesday, our colleague began to feel ill, sought a COVID-19 test and is now resting at home.

SCU has identified nine staff who have had some form of contact in relation to the staff member’s movements on campus Monday and Tuesday. All have been notified and are self-isolating and getting tested.

The Lismore campus has only just emerged out of the recent lockdown but was still only partially operating this week.

The University has been operating in a study/work from home mode since July as a precaution.

  1. The division of our community is a known aspect of war. This war is already lost. No amount of evidence will matter at this point. Ego prevents any real discussion.
    As a final gift to help fence sitters decide, ask your corrupt communist puppet leaders how they can detect Covid19 fragments in sewage when the ‘vaccinated’ shed fragments also.
    This obvious control, and associated targeting of those capable of researching for themselves, is merely the first wave. The weakening of our nation to reduce resistance to inevitable UN/Globalist soldiers.

  2. Another expert who has cracked the code. Except you haven’t.
    Vaccination doesn’t made you shed virus fragments.
    Being infected with the virus is what makes that happen.
