      It’s not close contact so I haven’t been told to isolate. But I just can’t risk it so I’m isolating from my family. My 6yo sits at my door and cries for me to let her in. It’s breaking my heart.
      😭😭 I'm sorry, I hope your test comes back negative

      • Still waiting for DH's results! 3 days today. I've now realised mine must have had a rush put on them since I'm a teacher.

            Thanks everyone. Hoping today goes better. It’s too early to test, I need to let the potential germs incubate before I test. I’m thinking Sunday or Monday. Then it will take a few days to get the results.

              I think Andrews has shown grace and professionalism through out. He has acknowledged mistakes and lead his state.

              Morrison has done nothing and in fact, had he not finally seen reason and listened to state premiers at cabinet meeting re overseas returning travellers this whole situation would be a disaster. He brings nothing to the table.

              The aged care disaster because the Morrison government didn’t exact any plan. Their job was to provide resources to these facilities to stop the spread - they didn’t.

              I don’t see the state government blaming the federal government for the quarantine debacle... despite bio security and immigration actually being a fed responsibility. What have the feds actually done?

              Other than the renovations for the rich, even then only 250 people took up the scheme so far. Oh and repeatedly ignoring or refusing to fund more social housing.

              I’m in Vic so the focus within the media is squarely on the current crisis but I’m a bit sick of the Dan Andrews bashing and crickets about the Scotty from Marketing.

              Just wondering Bub hubbers in other states - is there much coverage on the federal response?

              • A little here in the ACT, not enough to get through to people unless they're actively looking though.

                It's disgraceful the cynical way Morrison and Frydenberg in particular are exploiting the outbreak in Victoria to damage Andrews politically. They prob see him as a threat should he ever move into federal politics, because he's competent and popular, so they're trying to smear him now.

                I think Andrews has handled this crisis and himself very well - not playing politics but managing a large state through a pandemic. Not an easy job, particularly when you see how many people refuse to cooperate in the absence of heavy penalties.

                • Thanks [MENTION=150759]Kalina[/MENTION]. That’s so disappointing. I’d hope it was because Victoria is in own bubble right now (literally and figuratively!). Alas, no such luck!

                  Can you imagine DA in the feds? He would be great, although given it seems the feds do SFA, I think Vic should just keep him for ourselves 😂.

                              I reckon I had more “wanna catch up” messages this weekend than I’ve had in months. Lockdown has turned them all into h0rny sex pests!
                              My response:
                              1. No you are not one of the reasons to leave my house
                              2. You’re a stranger
                              3. You probably have rona from all the pesting you’re doing
                              4. Just no.

                                I tested this morning. I love Dan Andrews and I’m not blaming him, but I honestly think the system isn’t great. Somewhere it’s going wrong. My work said it’s only 4 minutes, it’s not close contact, you don’t have to isolate. I opted to isolate anyway and rang the hotline to see how many days after exposure is it best to get tested. They said within 48 hours?? That seems a bit soon for my body to register the virus. They also said if I talked to him it was close contact.

                                I go to the drive thru today and they will only test you if you’re symptomatic. I had I had casual contact and had a small sore throat. They said well that’s no contact then, but I got a test because of the sore throat.

                                Previously when I’ve been tested I got my results via text but my kids never came through, even though it showed it was sent. I’ve also been given conflicting information from the hotline versus the testing staff about who had to quarantine from our house.

                                Not the mention the different ways at work this has been handled. 3 companies involved and two made their people isolate but I didn’t have to.

                                I just feel like the left hand isn’t talking to the right.
