  1. Someone likes going to Coles :o)

  2. May I ask why the covid updates are up to 2-3 days behind for the coast. State reports dont give active areas you do.

    • Christine, we receive and publish verified information from Central Coast Local Health District. The case number data is from 8pm the night before, the exposure site data is rolling data based on the contract tracers best efforts. We have requested more granular data about case location, recovery and activity, we expect that to hand some time soon. Thank you for the question.

    John Barrilaro quoted 22 new cases on the Central Coast today. Great, there go our chances of being set free on 10 September!!!!

    Maybe they should crack down on people not wearing masks. Likewise look at the number of people who wear masks below their noses. And then there’s the attitude that we’re on the central coast “and it couldn’t happen to us” so this COVID spread was just waiting to happen.

    How are these cases getting to the coast I.e transport drivers construction workers how can someone give a more accurate account
    The amount of people out and about on the coast is ridiculous it’s as though nothing is wrong if this keeps up we will be in lockdown till Christmas

    Stewart there are some legal n medical reasons for some not to wear a mask or below the nose. Don’t assume you know every medical ailment on every person. It’s called discrimination n is punishable under the disability discrimination act 1992

  7. I think the ‘it can’t happen here (central coast)’ attitude is a major issue. Get with the program people and take it seriously, or we will be in lockdown till new year or longer.
