To clarify, the last bit of the tweet ("11:59pm Tue 18 Jan") is when this announcement kicks in.

Who the hell has 5 RATs to test for 5 days?

My family work in mining, my son is tested daily, 1000 man er person camp at shift change and all the visitors are tested too, all day every day.

Workplaces that got off their arse. I’ve 100s of the useless things.

This is probably necessary, but it's just a part of a cascading issue. Now these workers in critical industries are more likely to infect their coworkers, leading to more active cases in these vital workforces. I wouldn't be surprised if the next step is having them work even when covid positive because there just aren't enough healthy people to staff these positions. I mean they already have been doing that for nurses in NSW, I believe.

The other day there was an article about it being introduced for abattoir workers in SA. So we're already there =

Has anyone realised they don't have to listen to the government and can choose to isolate and wear masks and wfh without a mandate?

ID: hsfdnd3

yes.

The government "mandates" are way to confusing to keep up with so I'm just doing whatever I feel is best for me and my family at this point. I really feel sorry for those people that have to work in the community and have no protections though.

Unless your employer tells you that they're not paying you sick leave and expect you to rock up tomorrow, with an official warning ready to be signed if you don't.

Wonder how the ACTU are going to handle this now that Labor are openly onboard.

10 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 01:58:02ID: hsfjqln

Aren't these the same essential workers who have worked right through, often without a break or leave?!

11 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 05:14:45ID: hsg8v9d

and who is providing AND paying for these RAT tests? There’s not a RAT in sight anywhere near me.

As a pregnant HS teacher, this pisses me the hell off.

15 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 01:05:33ID: hsfcp60

Lol at this point ALP aren't even Lib-lite - they're full strength!

Disgusting from a former workers party

Does education include University or only years 1-12? I'm so confused on that part.

ID: hsfs7tb

I'd love to know this. I work at a university, not a RAT in sight. No idea how they could think we could test for 5 days per person when we can't really test at all

17 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 04:33:40ID: hsg45is

Just get rid of close contacts as a category all together. Make it so either you have the virus or you don't.

18 :Anonymous2022/01/12(Wed) 23:29:01ID: hsf0bqy

It’s shit when a LNP state does this and it’s equally shitty when a labor state does it too. Another sign how desperate things are getting if we’re allowing known positive people to got to work and infect other critical workers

ID: hsfzktb

But these same people are not allowed to go out for anything other than work purposes if I’m understanding it correct? Crazy

20 :Anonymous2022/01/13(Thu) 04:29:23ID: hsg3nhq

Wait does this include cafes?

21 :Anonymous2022/01/12(Wed) 23:22:05ID: hsezb4d

Because letting a close contact work is so much safer than letting an unvaccinated person work?

ID: hsf13pv

Since we need to explain cause and effect again, here's the chain.

  • Unvaccinated people get job mandates lifted.

  • They return to their place of work.

  • They inevitably pick up COVID faster upon return than they previously would have now that they're in the community for an extra 40 hours a week.

  • They have disproportionately worse medical outcomes than the vaccinated as has been well and truly documented.

  • They end up going to hospital at a faster rate than previously, pressuring the medical system even harder than it already was.

ID: hsf0g49

it's much better to catch covid from someone who's vaccinated

We've got enough problems with omicron, lets not throw more delta spreaders into the mix.

ID: hsezuu8

What makes it more dangerous?
