Coronavirus Disease PSA

Hello Everyone,

On friday, the Prime Minister Scott Morssion announced a ban on mass gatherings of more than 500 people to be enforced across Australia. In the last few days, many music, art and sports events have been cancelled along with ANZAC day marches. Despite the seriousness of the global pandemic that has been recognised by the World Health Organisation and the already existing cases that have resulted in infections at schools, the government has not yet put forward a closure on schools.

We are very aware users from our site do attend universities and high schools. Some even live in the regions where the virus has been detected which has already resulted in some of these institutions to be temporally closed in the past few weeks. Particularly in Sydney with Epping Boys High School, St Patrick’s Marist College in Dundas, Willoughby Girls High School in the city and Katoomba High School in the Blue Mountains so far have had detections reported.

Experts have indicated that the virus not only can be spread via the air but can also be spread by contact with contaminated surfaces upto a period of 16 hours after being contaminated.

The world health organisation has recognised that people who carry the virus can exhibit no symptoms and still spread the virus. According to the department of health, 298 cases as of writing this message have been detected cross Australia.

NSW: 134
QLD: 62
VIC: 57
WA: 18
SA: 20
TAS: 6
ACT: 1

Health Gov

We think that it is very reasonable to be cautious in this time of crisis and imagine that further escellations in containing this virus will likely occur in the coming weeks and months, potentially resulting in more institutions to close. Despite reassurance by the government, we’ve already seen several closures due to detected infections from students and staff. So I lay out this suggestion for our users.

If you are going to school or university, stay home.
If you’re catching a bus or train to get to school or university, stay home.
If you have flu like symptoms or a cough, stay home.
You are infinitely less likely to get infected if you just stay home.

Thats the PSA. Take care everyone.

I'm not allowed to just stay home. Unless school says I can.

Sorry to hear that. The PSA is for gents who wish to make the argument for rational isolation. Prevention of infection probs a good idea for gents.

Schools are pretty much cancelling everything but class at this point, as much as they can within government guidelines.
