    Covid at the esplanade ettalong beach, and also box on the water
    as residents we are doing the right thing.
    Just go to ettalong at the cafe on the water.
    what a joke nobody wears masks, always chit chatting, no distance, sitting on the wall. Its outrageous all seats covered by plastic but there still sitting on the wall. Its a bloody joke .no one cares it will be a epidenmic in ettalong soon.
    all the elderly in this town are suffering and people dont care. Biggest joke we have locked down for so long ,send in the police to get them fined dooooo something

  3. I support Carmen Wells as she is very correct. The coast is not in lock down, not if you look how busy the place is, and they want restrictions eased, even though the virus is spreading through the coast, numbers are climbing and as Carmen states, we have many elderly people here, may retirement homes, they will be severely effected, but trying to get through to some people is just to hard as they obviously do not have a smart brain. I believe it doesn’t matter how many certicates one holds, or there status, or finances, some people are just plain ignorate and selfish and dumb.

  4. Carmen and Tricia, you both need to get a grip, Delta is virtually never transmitted in the open air environment. People who take the opportunity to enjoy the outside and chat to other people are not doing anything wrong. If you are fully vaccinated, which most elderly people should be by now then you have little to fear. Stop being alarmist and scaring people, the Government already does enough of that.

  5. Totally agree, people flouting the lockdown is outrageous and puts everyone at risk. We need more policing of the rule breakers so that everyone will be safe!

  6. When is the NSW & Federal Government’s get their head of the sand and get on with doing what they are paid to do – at the moment they don’t have a clue what they are doing.
    Walking and driving around Gosford area I am seeing 9 out of 10 people aren’t wearing masks – reported to Crime Stoppers who report to police who I think just fill it
    Let’s follow our Commonwealth partners in the UK and just get on with life
