Defense Force member with violation report in Darwin

Northern Territory police have reported a violation to a Defense Forces member who allegedly left his quarantine facility in Darwin yesterday.

The 41-year-old was subjected to a mandatory 14-day quarantine period after his return from abroad.

Police say he took a negative COVID-19 test both before he left and when he arrived in Darwin.

The man was brought to the police’s attention based on what the police called his “aggressive behavior”.

The fine for not following the Chief Health Officer’s instructions is $ 5,056.

In the meantime, more than 33,000 conformity checks have been carried out in the NT, with 155 fines being imposed.

A question about the quarantine between NSW and Victoria

I live in Sydney. Do I still need to conduct hotel quarantine in Victoria or NSW when I return from the Victoria or Metropolitan Area? I still see the hotel quarantine request on the NSW permit application form. Are the rules different if I enter NSW (Sydney) by air or road?


good day Alwyn.

NSW is demanding that people entering the state from Victoria go to hotel quarantine.

You don’t need a permit or have to go to hotel quarantine when entering Victoria.

You must follow the strict rules that apply.

A matter of deaths in Australia

Hello Mick, hello blog team. It is now being reported how the number of cases is increasing, what about the deaths? Is it comparable to the first wave? Is it less due to less severe cases, a better case section, or better treatments?


The deaths in this country during the second wave of the virus were far higher than the first.

We’ll all be together soon

Hello Mick, I wish you and all ABC bloggers a good Sunday. You were a lifeline. Today we celebrated my mother-in-law’s 90th birthday with lunch at home. Socially distant, masks on when we don’t eat or drink, just the three of us. Sad that her only granddaughter, 30 km from here, couldn’t come to see us, but we made a Skype call. Soon we will all celebrate together again.


Hello Liz.

We hope your mother-in-law had a wonderful birthday.

A bit of positivity in Melbourne for a Sunday afternoon

Today we finally had to leave home more than 5 km …… Many people in Port Melbourne enjoyed the sun with friends. Most of the people wore masks, were far away from other groups, we felt comfortable, even if a little nervous. Please wear your mask in solidarity so that we can enjoy this beautiful city.

-Free at last

I just got in the car and took a Sunday drive. We didn’t stop anywhere and stayed within the 25km zone but it was such a relaxing way to have a sunny Sunday afternoon in Melbourne.
