Many people are confused about what they are able to do at present - particularly business owners. My relative owns a business and I'm involved in business also. They do not know how they are going to operate into the future or what certain sectors will be targeted next by the Prime Minister.

The list put out by the Prime Minister this evening has already hit some businesses, some that have announced they will have to close in the short term - like those in hospitality, as some simply cannot rely on take away as an operation.

Please note his list this evening did not include beaches! Why not?

In terms of getting out - including in places like parks, this is important for all. People are still able to be socially apart from others and for people like myself who need good levels of Vitamin D it is essential. I need to be able to improve my health at a younger age and I've been advised this is possible.

I live in a house surrounded by shade. So I need to get out for health reasons. Any restrictions on freedom do not take into considerations the needs of others. If I feel any circumstance is beyond going out for the benefit of others or myself, I am fully capable of making that decision for myself.

"Confusion reigns as schools remain open but kids told to stay home" at:

So I'm not the only person here and some of the double standards from the Prime Minister are huge! He's also not realising States and Territories can make their own decisions.

"Many people are confused ..... " because they are being bombarded by misinformation from self-appointed 'experts'. Listen to the chief medical officers; that's where the Prime Minister gets his information, and it has been spot on. People like Nathan are making fools of themselves thinking that they know better. Deliver us from ratbags in this time of crisis!.

Hey NathanJ,

"Confusion reigns as schools remain open but kids told to stay home"

The reason confusion reigns is because maybe some people are not aware of the PRIMARY reason schools have not been closed already.

The PRIMARY reason schools have not been closed already is this:
38% of nurses have children currently in school.
So if we shut down schools, then we lose 4 out of 10 nurses who have to go home to look after their kids.
Thats the PRIMARY reason WHY schools aren't closed because of the virus already.
Nothing at all to do with the danger imposed by COVID-19 to staff and students, or preventing it's spread.

It's a 'bigger picture' issue.
Hospitals need nurses working right now as a greater priority.

Knowing this, people are foolish to have not pulled their kids out of school a week ago already, no matter what the government advice was.
