  1. Sick and tired of people not doing as requested and also tired of the Police not enforcing restrictions. Terrigal is like a summers day people sitting around chatting all day long

    • Soo.true l don’t go to Terrigal but Avoca beach we local doing the things man from Terrigal tryed tell a local here we don’t have to wear mask at Terrigal say no more

  2. It now obviously out and unstoppable in Central coast region and it definitely been seeded from entitled or desperate Sydney people either escaping from Sydney to their 2nd homes or contractors looking for work.With state government soft vague boundaries it was always going to happen.

    • How do you know its priveleged sydney people? It could be coasties who work in sydney bringing it back after each day’s work.

  3. Honestly, who cares anymore?

  4. My father-in-law lives at the Peninsular Village at Pozziers House. at Umina Beach We were told as his career that if we took him out on Fathers Day he would be made to stay in isolation in his room for 14 days. The reason was that the covit numbers had doubled and they could not control their staff so again the old people have to suffer. We are all double vaccinated and I asked because my father law is not allowed out how could he spread this and again they blamed the staff. I feel this has become a prison to him because they have staff they cannot control
    Please contact us with a personal reason why they have to bw quarateened for not going anywhere. We need not to be penalised we are not western Sydney

    • You just said you wanted to “take him out”.. that means he IS going somewhere! The elderly are so vulnerable to ANY virus, not just Covid, and for you to want take him away from where he MOST safe and out into the community is selfish on your part in my opinion.
      And what do you mean they can’t control staff??? The government has made vaccination mandatory in aged care (which I don’t actually agree with by the way, and yes I have had my first dose) so they actually are controlling staff. You are worried now? Be more worried when there are less staff looking after your father because they have left the industry in a week or so

  5. I would like to know how Bateay Bay Square can be so busy, everyone I drive past the car park is full. I thought we were supposed to be staying home except for essentials. Only one person from the family is supposed to be shopping for essentials. I am really fed up with the selfishness of so many of the public. The Government is doing all they can BUT it is up to the public to do their bit. I never thought Australians would behave like this

  6. A permit for work like Newcastle and if you travel to Sydney compulsory testing not to much to ask we won’t be vaccinated on coast till November

    You can’t keep starving people it causes desperation civil unrest to follow not everyone is a crimenal don’t have any one to fall back on too trust the pollies there have shown their true colours sad I see this

  8. I unfortunately came across 2 young construction workers at Kincumber Shopping Centre (in Coles) at 5pm who were wearing masks under their chins. When I asked them (from 2 metres away) why they weren’t wearing masks, they told me because COVID is not real, they laughed and walked off then into Liquorland. I pointed out to a Coles staff member what was going on and she said that they’re not allowed to say anything. It was very busy and I was really concerned. This kind of complacency and selfishness (construction workers) will keep us all in lockdown. Shame on them. Nice that they still have jobs to go to!!!

    Coast people have not been following the rules particularly where TAKE AWAY is concerned. Toowoon Bay corner has seen crowds of 10 -20 people converserving outside the coffee shops, & until recently unmasked as well ! Take away means Take it away from location.

  10. It’s only a matter of time
    Everyone is going to catch this,
    It’s all over the world 🌎

  11. After seeing now that covid is in Terrigal it was a matter of if but when.
    I live looking straight at the main Street of Terrigal , everyday I see hundreds of people in Terrigal walking in groups and no one wearing masks at all.
    There a no police patrols and if there were I dare say there would be alot of fines going out as you can clearly see people ain’t doing the right thing.
    Also I think personally if you a gonna wear masks outside wouldn’t you mask your children also. I see this alot wear the parent is wearing a mask but there kids a not.
    My personal opinion is children can catch the Covid also why not cover your children and pretect them as much as can be.
    As ATM there is no vaccine from 0-11 so wouldn’t you atleast buy them a mask.
    Terrigal is a beautiful place and I understand why we have alot of people here but it’s not a holiday and it seems to me people a in alot of denial thinking they won’t get the virus here.

  12. A bad example is set by a large number of TV outside reporters who report the news from places within NSW without wearing a mask. ABC is the worst TV channel to do this.
    I am sure people see this and then take the attitude of “ If they do not wear a mask why should I”

  13. I agree with John Johnson.I have reported a neighbour to Crimestoppers 3-4 times for constantly breaching rules having visitors. Police didn’t bother showing on a couple of occasions. I felt It was not taken seriously. I then rang Gosford Police a further 3 times as he is still having Visitors. The Police have shown up, but whatever the Police are saying to him is not enough of a Deterrent for him to stop this reckless behaviour and the same people coming and going. People winged about us on the Coast not having Cases and being classed as the same as Greater Sydney. Well Congratulations Mr Crouch for not standing your ground and protecting Central Coast Citizens. Knowing we have had Vaccine taken away by Cru el a de BerajiklianMorrison DeVille you still gave in, had us changed to Regional and now it is spreading like wildfire on the Central Coast and we do not have enough Vaccine and Appointments to Protect us.
    To Mr Crouch Mr Morrison Miss Berajiklian wanting to be Popular for Votes is not “Protecting Us”.
    Is there anyone else who sees a connection with drug dealers & people flouting stay home rules?
    Surely the Police can??

    To claim a fact and insist on it, is at its basis, pathologically disturbing. Douglas Eaton, wannabe mayor’s claims on coast road spending fall squarely into this realm.

  15. It’s not a lockdown, it’s a Mockdown!

  16. Get vaccinated and give yourself even more less of a chance of dieing. You will inevitably catch it at some point so don’t stress when that is, no point hiding from it. Drink plenty of water, exercise and eat well. You’ll be right.

  17. Response to Amanda Sept 4th….What sort of response is that….I care/and many people out there care! Honestly, with an attitude like that no wonder Covid cases are surging!!!

  18. I been inside Doing the right thing like many others I know
    It’s not fair for many of us
    Central coast I go to bataue bay every 4 days it is a joke carparks packed I miss my grandchildren

  19. Just do the right thing everyone. I miss my family, grandchildren and friends. I live alone and every day things are getting worse.
    Get vaccinated , do the right thing and life can return to some normality.

  20. Can we please get our Community leaders and members to start loudly voicing for Central Coast to please get vaccinated.Needs to be encouraged and voiced more! Not good enough on coast.

  21. I really feel for our young, I am 58 I have enjoyed wonderful freedom, rock concerts, bike rides first love. Everthing in life is special and should not be taken for granted. If reality is at present to respect and protect others then please do this and then maybe the young will run free and the old will age gracefully.
