Being told to stay at home , when you are supposed to be at work wasn’t so bad. In fact it was time with family that you wouldn’t normally get, and of course it was the right thing to do by our country.  We were told only to leave the house for essential items and exercise. Kids thought it was cool too, no school! 

Some people cooked and baked , some worked from home , some did video calls and some walked the dog. And then some started to research the pandemic. As the pandemic rocked mainland Australia, with deaths in Victoria and NSW, here in Tasmania there was an outbreak at the north west regional Hospital and over a period 13 people lost their lives to the virus, Tassie was in shock!

Events were being canceled left ,right and centre. Panic buying was prevalent, dunny rolls were in high demand (still confused about this) and people were truly scared. The media train gathered momentum filling everyone with the dangers of being around other people.

Someone coughing or sneezing in the street gathered foul looks . Forgetting the new sanitizing rules just once and shop keepers would pounce! Things had definitely changed and seemed to be getting worse. All business that were non essential simply shut the doors, small business suffering the most .

While the bottle shops , Bunnings , Kmart etc all kept trading because they were apparently more essential. The word on the street was death was now here in our little state . The elderly were the most valuable according to the government health department and so people became super defensive about the elders , families started to disagree about who visited. More events were shut down and the Tassie was officially declared a state of emergency!

As Christmas approached everything had changed , instead of working some had government income support, the unemployed had their payments double and no renter could be evicted by the landlord for not paying rent. Anyone who could work from home did. Shops were open again but borders remained closed . Tasmanians abroad were stuck , no one could cross our ocean border.

For some strange reason everyone is looking forward to the new year seemingly thinking that the changing of a date would make everything better again but that was just the start.  much worse was  still to come ….
