  • If you meet the criteria, you may be eligible for this payment https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/pandemic-leave-disaster-payment?context=60352
  • I can imagine a whole lot of eye rolling on reading that. Wha a lot of fluff. My workplace was pretty much the same, but at least they set a hybrid plan. Work from home Monday and Fridays if you want, be in the office Tuesday to Thursday. If you wanted a different work from home arrangement need to have formal approval.…
  • In Tasmania, still have a mask mandate for indoors. I expect once the small spike (from school return after summer holidays) balances out that the mask mandate will be dropped except for high risk venues/events. We still have high compliance because the mask mandate (aside from some minor ones related to the occasional…

  • MFP calories do not include exercise...so when you exercise the exercise calories are added back for you to eat. Some people eat all or only some of the exercise calories (in case they are over estimated), some eat none. Go by your hunger levels or weight loss levels. Losing too fast eat more of your exercise calories,…
  • Nuts,yoghurt, fruit or whatever else fits in with our calories or macros
  • I am sure if you had gained half a pound it wouldn't be 'only', you'd feel like it was a lot, so why doesn't it feel like the same in reverse. Celebrate your losses, every single one of them.
  • The article doesn't say why the person wasn't vaxxed but I can only imagine how difficult it would be doctors to have to ask these questions and for doctors to have to even consider such requests.…
  • I don't believe there are any real consequences, but if someone wants to access the financial support available for not being able to work they need to have registered first plus it allows the health department to offer services, for instance in Tasmania there is the [email protected] kit that has monitoring equipment, daily…
  • In Tasmania and Victoria those who have a positive RAT have to register details to the relevant health department not the patient's medical provider, I assume the same in NSW (if not its coming soon). Numbers are quite high and local clinics would be overrun it people had to report their medical provider. Tasmania has an…
  • It does sound like there is a proviso though...what is extra level of protection...testing that is referred to? Is this the rapid antigen testing? “The answer to that is: Yes. An extra level of protection would be the testing that Dr. Walensky mentioned,” said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and…
  • In my little state of Tasmania, we have reached 90% fully vaccinated rate for 12+, borders were fully opened on 15 December (with some stipulations regarding vaccinations, pcr tests plus isolation if travelling from hotspots as well international arrivals). Since then we have seven cases (not a lot, but a lot for a state…

  • I had the shingles vax about three or so years ago. I had to pay as I was under 70 and received a very small rebate from my health fund. The vax was recommended after having a bout of shingles over one of my eyelids. I had to wait a year after having the shingles.
  • You started to experience these additional symptoms in May or not long after? But is is only now you want it checked out ASAP? Or did I misunderstand?
  • In Australia, $1million up for grabs, milliondollarvax campaign with the funds being donated by philanthropists. I'd be interested to know if the rate of vaccinations has a sharp increase in October.
  • Are you sure you have your settings set appropriately? I am 5ft2 and to lose weight my calories are almost identical.
  • Well done on the weight loss. Just wondering if you have a lot of excess skin? If so, I wonder how much of that contributes to the last 8kilos you want to lose.
