Commenting on the story: Epidemics expert questions Marshall’s schools advice

I understand that the employer is to provide a safe working place.

Because state schools and TAFE colleges are to remain open and if employees become ill with Covid-19, is the government accepting responsibility.

Will the affected employees be entitled to compensation? – Claire Briggs

I humbly request the PM to close the schools as soon as possible, we are so worried about our kids going to school. – Meera Ajesh

Commenting on the story: Elderly-only shopping hour after shelves stripped bare

Would it not make more sense for the toilet rolls to be kept at the front of the stores holding “special” hour shopping?

As each customer’s pension card etc is checked by a staff member or two,  they could be offered a pack of toilet rolls from the stack.

This way you no longer have the fittest shoppers being able to reach the aisle (which is generally a distant aisle) stocking toilet rolls etc before less able people.

For those people who are only there because they’ve been unable to get loo roll,  it will also save time and effort. – Helen Adelsbury

Took my autistic adult son to Woolies at exactly 7am, he was looking forward to the shop to be quieter and being able to buy things he needed.

Neither happened. Shelves still empty, shop busy. Saw many older and disabled people very upset over still empty shelves. 

Whats the point of this hour if there is still nothing to buy? All that it does is upset vulnerable people more.

I went to get my usual Ventolin today. Chemist won’t have any for least a week.

Selfish hoarders are putting lives at risk. – Donald Budge
