Hi Fedup,

Take my word I am looking out for myself and I have a lot if time built up so I may retire early this yr. I think
35 yrs. is enough. I also found out today that 6 postal workers now have the virus so I will have to get my mail
with gloves on and wipe it down before I can open it up. I wish you only the best of luck and May God Bless You!

We seem to heading to more semi-lockdowns/restrictions since COVID cases are on the rise again. There's a lot of stress coming from all sides, so I hope folks can find ways to get relief and help as needed.

Gone into lock down with me to try and reduce the rate down, some people just do not seem to be taking this serious still.

Hi Fedup,

I'm sorry to hear you had to go into a lockdown again. I have heard that when Thanksgiving break comes
one of the big colleges by my house is telling all the students not to come back until the spring semester. If
this is true the population will go way down because the college owns 2/3's of the town. It's Cornell University.
The principal of the school where I work has been quarantined for 2 wks. because she's been around someone
that has the virus and I found out on Monday that one of my students is quarantined also so give it time and they
will probably shut the school down for me also. I wish all of you only the best and May God Bless You!

Thankfully, we haven't had another full lockdown. There are restrictions on some things, though. Masks are required everywhere. Now, restaurants, for example, can only serve diners outside or for drive through/take out.

We're finally getting things under control here. My state had been in lockdown (especially the city) since August and the other day we recorded our 1st day of all states not having 0 new cases in a very long time.

The premier of my state is slowly easing restrictions.
Where I live isn't so bad but it's a bit crazy because I'm on the border of 2 states and restrictions are strict in my state but the other state they're pretty eased.

They still have borders closed which makes it harder to get over but there's talk they may open soon 🤷‍♀️🙄

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later and it did a parent came into the school with covid and on top of that
an employee of a well known dept. store where many people shop went to work with the virus for 3 days so thanks to both of these
people I got tested today and I'm losing time from work. I'm grateful I have 4 months sick time. I just hope my test comes back
negative and everything is fine. Wishing all of you only the best and May God Bless All of You!

We seemed to keep Covid pretty much under control here compared to most countries but were probably a little more slower with the vaccine roll out.

I think out of all the states the one I live in which is Victoria has copped it the worse, last year they had 2 big lock downs then after that every time there is a slight case of covid they have a snap lock downs which is usually only for 1 - 2 weeks and they pretty much happen straight away.

At the moment Sydney area which is the main cities of New South Wales (the state which joins onto Victoria) has a bad case of covid but it’s only now the state leader is putting in strict restrictions.

It’s now gone to Melbourne again so last Thursday it was announced we would be in a 5 day snap lock down. This is the 3rd lock down this year for my state and 5th since covid so we’re used to it but the smaller businesses do struggle to keep open.

Im just lucky that where I work we’ve been able to stay open during the pandaemic.

From my understanding and little bits of info I seen on the news there were some removalists who moved a family from Sydney in NSW (the city that was infected with covid) to Melbourne. These removalists had covid and either didn’t report their info correctly or didn’t get test it. But it’s under investigation.

One of the towns they went through was actually not far from where I live but I don’t think they went near me (NSW / Vic Border. Albury is the adjoining town to me)
