COVID-19: South Australia goes into 6 days lockdown

COVID-19: South Australia goes into 6 days lockdown

As of midnight tonight, Wednesday 18 November, South Australia is going into 6 days of full lockdown to get on top of their current outbreak of COVID-19.

The lockdown is pretty strict, tough, and will be enforced by police. Households are limited to one person out of their homes once per day.

Air travel into Adelaide will require 14 days quarantine unless you are a FIFO worker. You can find full details on the South Australian governments website. Basically you need to register, and not embark on travel until you have received approval by email.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Fortunately, I don’t have any travel planned to Adelaide at the moment. Its also a lesson, that just because others are being relaxed about transmission of COVID-19, that’s no reason for you to be.

I was startled that virtually no one was wearing a mask in Adelaide. Even though you agree to terms mandating wearing a mask, no Uber driver wore a mask at any stage while I was in Adelaide. Friends of mine have been told not to wear masks by Adelaideians as it would ‘freak people out’.

Well this outbreak is a lesson to us all. Stay vigilant and wear a mask!
