There are 913 active cases within the aged care sector in Victoria, this is bad news, I believe the community transmission cases are a lot smaller than the 723 cases announced today, even if it were say 200-300, it's still far too high, from 11:59pm Sunday night, ALL of Victorians will be required to wear a mask outdoors.

Face coverings to become mandatory in Victoria following another record spike in COVID-19 cases

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced that masks or face coverings will become mandatory when outside home in the state from midnight Sunday. The move comes after the state recorded 723 cases and 13 deaths on Thursday.

Well I've heard of everything from visiting pubs, cafes, supermarkets etc...  No way is this going to be contained.

Incidentally, the Brisvegas pair also allegedly went on a luxury handbag shoplifting spree before the illegal party in Melbourne.  Jail time for those Nicki Minaj wannabes likely I would imagine.

So the only leadership chairman Dan has on Covid is to lead a state of Australia to 1000 daily cases before implementing less than the required restrictions? Top work mate.

For context
In 2014 I had an Aortal bifemerol bypass graft (look it up) I was switched off and on a few times and I had a couple of TIA's during the operation, (12 hours) and have had some TIA's since, I've also have had 5 stents, I have diabetes the self inflicted type of course and I also have copd
I sometimes get brain fade (you may of noticed)
I'm on 11 tablets in the morning and 4 at night
I am only 57 years young and I am worried  s h i t l e s s

Everyone has a story I know

Shut the state down now and shoot anyone disobeying the rules or at least lock them up
  Mr. Lane Chief Commissioner

The public handling of this in Victoria is woeful.

Should have gone to stage 4 a week ago, or at the very least only absolute essential causes for leaving home.

Starting to think that instead of referring to Victoria as Mexico I am going to start referring to Victoria as America.

Most people are doing what they are told within the actual hard requirements and not too many people are running around shouting about losing their Freedumbs. But it is becoming quite clear that people still feel the pressure to go to work and so I think that option needs to be removed.

I even know permanent workers still going into work with mild illness because they know if their bosses find out they are sick they will send everyone in the building home to get tested and not be able to come back until cleared and they don't want to be the person who causes that to happen.

I think we should go Stage 4 for a period of 3 weeks then re-asses and that it should include Geelong. For a great many people like myself, we are already effectively in stage 4 since mid March except for that little window before the second lockdown.

I have real doubts that statewide mask wearing will make a difference, but whatever, I am doing it anyway, its not that much of an issue.

You're not the only relatively young person with a heart condition.  I need to be careful too.

This thread would make interesting reading 100 years from now. If only one was created at the time of the Spanish flu.

This started off with humble beginnings.... Where some of us claimed " its not going to breach the hospital walls". Look at it now.

Trucks should not be allowed to cross interstate. Loads should be decoupled at the Vic border or put on a freight train.
  justapassenger Minister for Railways

A number of companies are already doing almost just that by having one driver handle the sector within Victoria, a second shuttling loads back and forth on the cross-border sector from Nhill to Keith (suggested by the SAPOL/ADF task force as locations with more suitable truck parking facilities than the Dukes Highway border checkpoint in the middle of nowhere), and then a third taking over for the sector within SA.

With community transmission accelerating further in the working/middle class suburbs of Melbourne, it might be time to also insist on interstate trains also adopting relay working.

Yeah, and with all the self proclaimed epidemiologists commenting here and other fora, especially the media sites, people in the future will wonder why it wasn't nipped in the bud earlier.

Point to point / depot to depot working rather than relay.
Relay working is where you haul a relay van and two crews share the entire distance. They then change over every so many hours/kilometres.
Most working on the Trans-Australian Railway is done this way these days.

Charming young girls go to Melbourne for a shoplifting spree in high end shops and instead end up bringing back COVID19 to Brisbane and have been potentially spreading anywhere and everywhere. What lovely, community-minded ladies they are - Seven News;

7NEWS now understands the two 19-year-olds travelled to Melbourne, allegedly intending to commit thefts on high-end fashion stores.

The two women also attended an illegal party on July 19 and were handed $1600 fines for blatantly ignoring restrictions. On July 21 they flew on VA863 from Melbourne to Sydney. By not leaving the terminal, they avoided border checks. They arrived in Brisbane on VA977, where they allegedly provided fake names and false border declarations.

For the next eight days they visited restaurants, shopping centres and a church in the Springfield and Logan areas, exposing a huge number of people.

Now, hundreds of anxious members of the Parklands Christian College community are angry and fearing that they have potentially been infected.

700 is not 1000. Pull your head in.

Regardless of the present, and even the most stringent future restrictions, we all know that the type of people who are flouting the rules are those with a healthy sense of self righteousness. Pompous old farts set in their ways, Miss Prissy's who think the world revolves around them (regardless whether they are teenagers who apply makeup with a trowel, or middle aged princesses sick of walking the footpaths of Brighton), conspiracy theorists, religious zealots, deniers etc. Generally speaking, such people believe that their individual rights are far more important than their social responsibilities and hide behind archaic and barely relevant constitutions (classic example are NRA members in America). Grouped together, please remind me who they would normally vote for?

Seriously? Have you seen where the cases are greatest? It ain't Toorak or Bra-ton.

And as if that wasn't enough, the brother of one of them is furious with the media for failing to respect his sister's privacy, and says that this was only done because she's a person of colour. Rather than respect her privacy, I'd put her and her idiot brother in the stocks.

It's the exact opposite of what DirtyBallast said, the people who are flouting the rules don't really strongly identify with Australia or Australians because they weren't born here and they don't think obeying the rules is important. They only think their own little world or enclave is what matters. And to a great extent its the various Labor-party led governments that have reassured them that this is the correct way of thinking; that the greater good doesn't matter.

Daniel Andrews: The blame game

20 June: Blamed families
‘We have had many stories of families that have given it to each other’
7 July: Blamed people not following rules
‘So many people want to pretend this is over’
22 July: Blamed workers
‘They continued to go shopping, continued to go to work’
26 July: Blamed young people
‘You probably know someone who isn’t following the rules’
28 July: Blamed private care homes
‘These private facilities are not run by the Victorian government’

Next will be the Commonwealth ("They didn't help us enough"), Liberal voters ("They voted for the wrong party") and Donald Trump ("He hates China")
