Hi Moonstruck. I'm so glad for you that you will be released from the full lock down later today, even though it seems like you are now stuck with almost exactly the same mask rules as Greater Sydney, for the next 10 days at least. I saw that there were zero cases again and that you will be rid of the rule regarding wearing a mask while driving in your own car from 6pm today. I think that one might've gone the same way as some of the rules we had here, earlier in 2020, regarding bans on swimming in the sea and sitting on the grass or a park bench in the open air. These bans caused a lot of difficulties for both members of the public and the authorities. These bans were, thankfully, withdrawn at some point mid last year without ever having been reimposed although there was never any admission about the rules being illogical in the first place. Oh well, at least those rules are now gone. Also, I see that the cricket will be a bit different in Brisbane to what has taken place in Sydney. The GABBA can have 50 percent capacity and masks only need to be worn in indoor areas and while moving around, but not while seated. However, at the SCG, which started off allowing 50 percent capacity crowds but then had to reduce it 25 percent capacity due to so many calls to cancel it completely, masks must be worn everywhere, including in the open air while seated. I feel that the rules imposed on fans at the SCG may also go the way of the dodo once the enforcement difficulties and inconsistency with other rules make this too much of an imposition on fans sitting in the blazing sun all day, and also for the police and security people, who must be having an awful time of trying to enforce this in the outdoors when they themselves are also being expected to wear it. The rule also seems to be driving people to drink in excess as you don't have to wear the mask while drinking. I hear that there are a lot of intoxicated people out there, which is a very bad outcome of this rule (and not good for public health, I dare say). One good thing that might come from this "go early and go hard" lockdown is that people might learn not to engage in panic buying. All the best, Moonstruck, and to all in Brisvegas.
