Imagine not being able to go for a picnic even in a pandemic?

Thankfully, the police threw up their hands and didn't do a hard press at Bondi beach.

I'd hate to be a westie because the 5 km rule means there's no nearby beach for yous to go to.

Good for them. Open up society for the vaccinated and let the unvaxxed watch from inside. It’s a shame it’s taken this long, but that’s what needs to be done to protect the innocent from the ignorant

Vaccine is not mandatory, but non vaccinated are so scary for the society that they can not even have a walk to the park to eat a sandwich ?

Of course you can go for a picnic! It’s the socializing with friends that is restricted to the vaccinated.

How generous, a few picnics…wow. And they all are even immediately happy and easily satisfied.

It was bad enough reading the ignorant comments of many Trump supporters when he was pres.But the ardent,pro-vaxxers are getting on my damn, last nerve as well.

Attitudes to anti-vaxxers are bit like attitudes to smokers. It's fine to do what you want to do to the detriment of your own health, but when it affects the health of others, then people discriminate.

Personal freedom is fine, but when it is has a vast negative impact on the health and economy of the whole society, they are looked down upon.

Promoting discriminatory behavior and no better than Trump actually.

A bit of unnecessary bating there... ;-)

Reynard- divide and conquer, right?

At least Australia is following the science. We all know that COVID spreads like crazy outside, especially if you go beyond 5 kilometers of your house.

Not really.The stuff some people write is outrageous.Talking about unclean,dirty and worse.You'd think they are talking about people living in third world conditions.But they're not.Talking about foreigners living in Japan.With the extremely high death tolls of "first world" countries like the U.S. and U.K. wouldn't the cleanliness of people living there be brought into question by some?

Of course. Hence the endless bait and switch from the governments.
