I’ve been talking to a few people about the Pandemic over the last few weeks.

We have just had another lockdown in Victoria.

It’s interesting to observe that some people have really not been affected in any way by the pandemic, while others have had their lives totally changed.

I can only use my experience to say that it has been shit for us, I can’t travel and 80% of my work is interstate. Even the workplaces I visit in Victoria are hesitant to bring anyone into their sites for fear of introducing Covid to their workplace.

So my work has pretty much dried up.

Others are still going to work, able to socialise, go for day trips, stay in accommodation, have family get togethers. So not much has changed for them.

I’m not angry about this, I realise that it is just the way it is. We are unfortunate that we happen to live in the state that has copped the worst of it (I’m not going to start to blame anyone for why it seems to be just us).

But I can imagine that some people are starting to develop an ‘Us against Them’ mentality.

Let me just ask you to consider how others are coping, if you live interstate and have someone you know in Victoria be considerate of how these lockdowns have impacted some people. Try not to rub it in as to some of the things that you can do that we can’t.

As the ad’s say ‘We are all in this together’.

After writing this NSW, WA and the NT have all called a snap lockdown, this is terrible and I hope they all get on top of it as soon as possible. But in some ways it might show people in other states what we have had to deal with and just how serious this is. COVID Sucks!
