Get jabbed in your non-dominant arm because it’s going to be sore for three days.

Take something to read because you might have to wait.

And if you get annoyed waiting remember - our health care friends are working long shifts to jab you.

Six is a Maribyrnong man in his 20s.
He works in Derrimut. Very disappointing that I have to spell Maribyrnong again - gets us to six.

Victoria. What the hell??
This is like when you’re having a great time in the club and then your ex turns up! 🥴

Enter: Delta not Goodrem.
What the actual.. I thought we were all good? Same bestie. SAME!

We started the day with ZERO new cases. ZERO! The CHO turned into Dean Boxall. We boasted. We loved ourselves sick…..and then - one. new. case. 🤬
How?
The health people say she’s a Teacher at Al-Taqwa College in Truganina. They don’t know how she got it.They’re testing her household contacts and the school will close with all students/teachers to be tested - then iso.
The same school had an outbreak in July last year.

Ok, the Queenies went BAM!

Straight into lockdown town.

And that means - you’re up first!
What in the hell happened? Let’s step through it.

A school girl from Indooroopilly High tested positive yday. We knew this. Today-boom-six cases - a tutor, a teacher, her parents and siblings.
They’re trying to work out how she got it but they’re looking at some return travellers who possibly gave it to the tutor - who’d been everywhere.
