Do you live in Melbourne? Are you worried about this lockdown?

Isn't this only applying to Melbourne? 

No restrictions in WA----------yet!

Only Victoria Celia, except toilet paper.

I live in metropolitan Melbourne and I am not worried in the least about this latest lockdown or the border closures, necessary and sensible measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We now order our groceries online and delivered weekly. Apart from  milks we have no trouble getting adequate supplies from the supermarket, only two cartons milk per delivery is hardly adequate for our wants but we get by. We have lived in places where fresh milk was unavailable and had to use Sunshine powered milk all the time so we are not too badly off. The main thing we miss is the Bakers Delight bread, but we are grateful to be well, protected and safe.

i put an order in for SAFEWAY last thursday,  but no delivery until monday, [tomorrow]    so must be heaps more people ordering online,    there were restrictions on some things,    went to COLES on friday,  to get my meat,   restrictions there also,    but plenty of meat,   BUT,       NO FRESH MILK,    have no idea why,   but only a couple of  cartons of low fat,     i had to get a 3LITRE carton,   as thats all they had,   and only a couple of those,     why would [people hoard milk, ?   

Surprised today people are not wearing masks here, but we are out of Melbourne, in Gippsland. No shortages either. Take care everyone.

 

What a cute Avatar Phyl!

Phyl I agree with Celia, love the puppy, Gippsland has only 1 active case I think. And it is a big area.

It's  like a recurring nightmare
