Halloween trick or treating urges to be safe

It comes at this time of year when trick or treating wants to get access to your front yard for candy and chocolate.

This may not be the most hygienic practice during a pandemic, which is why NSW Health has urged people to take extra precautions.

Dr. NSW Health’s Jeremy McAnulty said groups should ideally be limited to household members.

He says people should Avoid sharing masks and Halloween costumes and should Make sure the treats are individually wrapped.

“Halloween will be different like any other event, so we urge people to take extra care that they and their children are protected,” said Dr. McAnulty.

Fun Fact: In Ireland, where Halloween originated, the night is called Oíche Shamhna, which means the night before the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain, which marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of the dark winter months.

COVID-19 racism

The President of the Chinese Australia Forum says racism against Chinese migrants plays into the hands of Beijing.

Since the coronavirus pandemic began, there have been multiple media reports of abuse and violence against Chinese-Australians.

In June, China issued a tourist travel warning warning Chinese students of the risks of traveling to Australia.

Chinese Australian Forum President Jason Yat-Sen Li says racism makes a number of migrants feel like they don’t belong.

“The increasing anti-CCP rhetoric, this whole narrative that this is a China virus, is something that China has brought to the world, and it is China’s fault,” Li said.

“All of that just piles up, there is always a bit of racism and prejudice anyway.

“They believe that this is a competition of ideas between the CCP and Australian values ​​if we do not make migrants with Chinese backgrounds who have chosen Australians feel like they belong here, just for their bosom drives the CCP. ”

Comment on problems …

It seems that at the moment we are having some issues getting comments. ie we don’t get any.

It occurred to me that people just didn’t want to get in touch, but we ran a few tests and it seems like comments just don’t come in.

We have alerted the relevant people and I assume they are working as hard as they can to get the problem resolved.

Subsidized visits to Melbourne proposed by the state opposition

Victoria’s State Opposition has drawn up a travel discount plan to bolster the state’s tourism sector recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the proposed system, the Victorian government would subsidize the cost of accommodation for bookings of three nights or more.

The 50 percent discount would be capped at $ 200 for travel to any part of the state, including local Victorians visiting Melbourne.

“We all know that tourism is an important part of the Victorian economy in terms of keeping people and jobs busy,” said David Hodgett, Secretary of State for Shadow Tourism.

“After months and months of lockdown, they really have problems, so we worked with tourism companies to come up with ideas that would give tourism the boost it needed.”

WA Premier is considering updated advice on hard limits

The Washington government is considering new advice from the state’s chief health officer amid ongoing pressure to lift the state’s hard line.

The government confirmed yesterday that it has received updated recommendations that will be submitted at today’s meeting of the State Disaster Council.

Prime Minister Mark McGowan has previously said there must be 28 consecutive days with coronavirus nowhere to spread across the nation before the border can be opened.

WA is the only state that doesn’t commit to reopening its borders until Christmas.

Yesterday, Education Secretary Sue Ellery said “The hard borders policy has served us well” and she would not speculate on what the new health advice would propose.

WA currently has 49 active cases after a new case was registered yesterday, a man in his twenties who tested positive in hotel quarantine after returning from overseas.

Border decision threatens

Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk is meeting with CHO Jeanette Young today to discuss the reopening of the New South Wales border.

The border has been closed since August, and Queensland authorities have since stated that NSW must reach 28 days of no community broadcast before the border is opened.

NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said yesterday it was frustrating that the border had remained closed and that other states had merged NSW with Victoria.

“There’s no reason NSW residents shouldn’t be welcomed into other states,” she said.

“It has been an acute feeling of frustration for me and our agencies in New South Wales that a large number of Prime Ministers in recent months have chosen to put New South Wales and Victoria in the same category.”

Ms. Palaszczuk said she would not risk the lives of Queenslanders.

“I have to do what I have to do to protect Queenslanders,” she said.
