'Rigid' distancing measures must stay as restrictions ease | Sky News AustraliaAustralians have been urged to continue some of their lockdown behaviours as restrictions are eased with the Deputy Chief Medical Officer telling Sky News it may be a long while before you can hug your mates. \n\nSpeaking with Sky News, Dr Nick Coatsworth said he was optimistic about Australia’s result in the battle against COVID-19. \n\nBut he said if we want to be able to head back to the classroom and into retail spaces then Australians will need to keep up the “rigid” behaviour. \n\n“What we really want to see is to be able to have the mobility of society increased,” he said. \n\n“But at the same time, the bahviour has to stay very, very rigid and cautious.\n\n“Unfortunately no hugging, no shaking hands for the foreseeable future, excellent hand hygiene, going into every store and seeing some hand santiser there we can use. \n\n“If we can do that … we can get society back on its feet while maintaining coronavirus at a very low level.'

Kieran_Gilbert Oh I suppose, now it's being revealed that the numbers have been over inflated then? 🙄 Kieran_Gilbert on the evidence of last night it's 6 or 7 drinks before you hug your mates...

Chief Medical Officer flags National Cabinet plan to ease restrictions | Sky News AustraliaLockdown measures could soon be lifted after Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy said the National Cabinet was working on a plan to relax measures in what would likely be a staggered approach.\n\nMr Murphy said the cabinet was 'seriously looking' at which measures it could ease as it worked through the development of a package that would 'return our society to as much normality as we can safely do'.\n\nMore than 4.5 million Australians have downloaded the government's COVIDSafe app - a measure Mr Murphy said would expedite the likelihood of restrictions being relaxed. \n\n'The more we have signed up of those 16 million, the more confidence I'll be able to give National Cabinet they'll be able to make a decision,' Mr Murphy said.\n\n'The more confidence they have, the bolder they might be.'\n\nImage: Getty Good on you 🇦🇺 .

NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro bows out of Eden-Monaro race | Sky News AustraliaAs NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro is reportedly expected to declare he will not be running for the vacant seat of Eden-Monaro, Liberal Senator Jim Molan has told Sky News he’d “love to do it,” but has not yet made up his mind.\n\nMr Barilaro will on Monday announce he won’t be running for the seat, leaving Mr Molan or Liberal NSW cabinet minister Andrew Constance as the likely coalition candidate for the election .\n\nMr Molan said it would have been a “big call” for the Nationals to take its vote from seven per cent “up to a winning per cent anyhow”.\n\nHe told Sky News host Paul Murray, whether Mr Constance runs or not is “irrelevant” to him and said it “won’t impact on me in anyway shape or form”.\n\n“This is going to be extraordinarily hard for the government, for the coalition, to win”.\n\nLabor will on Monday announce Kristy McBain, the Mayor of Bega, as its candidate for the seat.\n Do you have to live in the electorate to run for the office? I wonder why? Good

'Two sets of rules minutes apart': Wodonga's mayor calls for restrictions to ease“It would have been great to have a whole nation approach rather than state by state. That makes a lot more sense, particularly when you do live on the border” Yet chooses to ignore chronic under-investment by the NSW state government on the North side of the Murray. Repeated all the way to SA border. It makes sense when you live on the border, but the state approach makes more sense for everyone else Yet attempts by Whitlam to unify the cities were toppled by the then National Party and local government
