    why could that report not include how many cases in total and all the whereabouts’ isn’t it bad enough that the premier never includes us or gives out information on the no’s and locations?!!! Us residents on the central coast are having a very difficult time trying to get this information and it’s not supplied on your site on f/book either! And NSW Health is too hard to negotiate with or fathom because even there you can’t tell how many infected people on the central coast with it. Surely it wouldn’t be that hard for the council to provide this information! I’ve noticed the Premier doesn’t ever give us total cases either just the new cases, it’s pathetic!

    I’ve taken to follow Adam Crouch on Facebook, he has up-to-date figures for the coast.

  3. I think we have been very lucky here on the Central Coast but very angry at all of the idiots that went down to protest as well as the idiots from Sydney still coming up here when they know that they are now allowed… frustrating

  4. COVID BAD!!!!

  5. I must agree with comments from central coast residents. We are not being provided with up to date stats!, it is also very hard to work our way through health on line sites. We are all very worried that people travelling illegally around will spread it to our beautiful communities. Premier just ignores Central Coast in her updates. Are we regional or Sydney?? They chop and change our status continually. Compared to overseas we are still very lucky, BUT FOR HOW LONG?

    I work in Coles and I see some people still come in without Masks on and I dont even think they even QR code either so frustrating and we are here to help and serve you give a little respect to us please.

  8. It seems to be all too hard for folks to follow the rules, they are as plain as daylight about how far and when you can leave your home, forget just fines, throw them in gaol for a spell, it is a criminal offence to bend these rules, it puts the nation at a big risk.
