  • My partner and I have been very cautious and have decided to only see people who have self isolated when not working. Since the restrictions eased we visited both of our families. When more restrictions eased we visited some friends still abiding by social distancing rules. We used to see our family and friends every weekend but will only be doing it every second weekend now. Of course, still not visiting those who are unwell or having visitors ourself if we are unwell. Being in self isolation for 3 months has made my anxiety very hard to deal with. I went to the shops for the first time to get groceries and was overwhelmed by the amount of people who were there and not abiding by the 1.5m rule. I ended up leaving the shops without my groceries because of how overwhelming it all was.

  • We will be more respectful of people and the space they need. I have educated my elderly parents as to the benefits of staying at home and only going out if it is essential. We recently took a trip to see family in the country who have self isolated. No Covid down there at all. Taking all precautions no hand shakes and hugs but good conversation and a meal together was just what they needed to feel normal. As soon as more restrictions are lifted we will travel to more family members. We plan on having more family reunions as not seeing family was really hard. Phoning them of course was important but not being able to come and go was hard. If your sick stay at home and get tested. Easy!

  • I hope that post covid19 we have learnt what is really important…family time, homemade meals and learning new skills.
    I also hope that it has identified the need for regaining our independence and being less reliant on other markets. It’s time to get patriotic and look after our own!

  • I am most excited that I can see family and friends and travel a little further for a visit to the beach :)

  • We will still be wary of places with larger crowds etc, but definitely looking forward to a meal out at some stage (someone else cooking and washing pots is my idea of heaven!)

  • Probably won’t change too much except on where I go walking lol
    I was back at work this week, which was a great feeling. I’m hanging out to meet 3 new babies though now restrictions have eased, one being a niece

  • Because of my and my hubbies work commitments, our kids have been at school 4 days a week (except for school holidays), but apart from school, we are enjoying our little bubble and no running around to sports and other activities. We will just see my mum & in-laws to keep up contact but apart from that we are content.

  • I will be being a little more cautious for a while once restrictions are lifted as I feel we will see a resurgence and one of my children is vulnerable. Its been fantastic for her to be back at school but have been as cautious as I can be. I can’t wait to visit my family though who live 4hrs away so we are unable to visit even under current relaxed restrictions

  • Apart from sending the kids to school, we won’t be doing much for a while. We have vulnerable people in the family, so will be very careful.

  • Just heading into the bush for hikes!

  • Although I am looking forward to seeing friends and family but I am a little concerned about lifting restrictions too quickly.

  • I think just being cautious in what ever we do now is a good thing. Think first.

  • Actually; within my area of influence I am encouraging people to maintain PPE and keep distance and practise good hand hygiene. It is important that with the easing of restrictions that people remain vigilant and follow good hygiene habits that hopefully have developed at this time. If everyone follows these guidelines and rules then life can get back to a new normal.

  • I’m much enjoying working from home and hoping my company willlet me continue even a few days a week

  • I think we all need to be very careful and not race back to the way it used to be. I feel it is a warning not to get too close to people so social distancing should still be done and making sure your washing your hands and making kids aware that they still have to not share food and washing their hands. Be careful not to let people move too close I had a women move close when I was getting served at the bakery I couldn’t believe it, it had a sign up only two people in the shop at one time and while I was grabbing a loaf of bread from the rack this women just walks in and I felt the shop owners should of told her but they didn’t. I’ve never liked crowds so I moved to a country town away from crowds and have felt a lot safer.
