Commenting on the story: Defence called in to swamped testing sites as COVID cluster grows

I don’t believe staffing is the only issue, although extra staff may help. In this day and age, it seems Neanderthal that bookings cannot be made.

Surely they know approximately how long each test will take. I can book a GP appointment online, so why not a COVID test? That would relieve a lot of the angst and people would only need to queue for a short time. – Alexandrea Cannon

SA Health, now at crisis point to staff Covid testing locations, have let Adelaide down. There appears to have been no immediate contingency plan, so now they are calling in the military.

Perhaps their narrow-minded employment policy is to blame. As a recently retired clinical drug research associate with over 27 years of clinical experience in the operating theatres and administration of drug therapies, I am not eligible for employment as I’m not a nurse.

How naive of the health system to think only nurses are capable of performing Covid testing and administering vaccinations. There are many paramedical disciplines equally qualified to to assist in this pandemic, yet seem to be of no value to SA. – Joanne Petito

Commenting on the story: $100 million in SA Govt grants for businesses shut during lockdown

Micro and owner-operated businesses not registered for GST miss out, yet again. 

Just because a business isn’t registered for GST should not mean it is any less valuable or important. Many single operators with low overheads have small businesses that are their sole form of income and are now shut down. – Jo-anne Cain

Commenting on the story: Lockdown a major blow to Adelaide’s winter festivals

To everyone whose theatregoing has or will be curtailed by the lockdown, and whose income is unaffected, please do the decent thing and donate the ticket cost rather than seek a refund. We owe these people. – Kathy Keech

Commenting on the story: Love, hate and Savvy B

Great article Tony, and yes, the 2021 Shaw & Smith is a beauty! – Doug Govan
