The government, in its infinite wisdom to drip feed we recalcitrant children with policy that is for our own good, seeks to reopen cafes and restaurants with a maximum of 10 people. One size fits all. Forget that 170 out of 500 local government areas (LGAs) have no cases of coronavirus.
This is a picture of ‘Essence‘cafe in Neutral Bay. It seats around 10 people in cramped quarters on stools.
400 metres up Military Road is The Oaks Hotel in which can accommodate 400 people.
Yet 10 people in Essence would attract a far higher risk of infection than 10 at The Oaks because of the difficulty of maintaining 1.5 metres.
Never mind. Not withstanding all food and beverage outlets are required to meet hygiene and capacity requirements.
Wouldn’t it be smarter to open up based on a percentage of mandated capacity? No, one size is easier according to our authoritarians.
Shut up and do as you’re told. You’re not qualified to exercise your own freedoms and respect for your fellow citizens.
