Not trying to rain on anyone's parade but just wondering if this is the ideal time to have a group meeting where people pass various objects amongst each other - possible greet each other with a manly handshake or worse still a "bro" hug.
Just curious. :)

Advice from AHPPC addressing issue of public events on 8 March is the latest advice -

At this time the AHPPC consider that public events should proceed, but strongly recommend that people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms should not attend public events or gatherings. This is particularly so for people who have recently travelled from overseas.


People who have been a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19, or who returned from or transited through a listed higher risk country (www.health.gov.au/covid19-countries), must not attend public gatherings until 14 days after leaving the country or having contact with a confirmed case even if they are completely symptom free. Those undergoing COVID-19 testing also must not attend public gatherings until they have received their results.


It is difficult to predict how the outbreak will evolve in Australia and the situation may change rapidly. When significant community transmission is occurring, social distancing measures such as cancellation of public gatherings will be considered. Australia does not have evidence of significant transmission currently, therefore cancellation of public gatherings – at this time - would not be proportionate nor particularly effective.

No change in that advice since that time.

Hi @alfredus @nsavage @khun_diddy and the Adelaide crew. As a contender for the very severe 15% because of heart problems I very regrettably have to wimp out of getting together tomorrow. I understand that the likelihood of contracting the virus is quite low at this stage but I would rather be sensible than not. When this thing passes I look forward to our next meet up [ or the one after that :) ]

Completely understand @nsavage (y)

Ok guys, I think I will call this one off for now and postpone it to after the coronacalypse :D

Sorry, but it seems we should air on the side of caution...
