Rob wrote: ‘How long have we known that hotel quarantine doesn’t work?

‘I’m curious to know. Because we are all doing our best wearing masks and using QR codes. But for some reason governments are not pulling their weight.

‘This lockdown is only happening because of poor management. Theatre is shut down. Restaurants. Bars and cafes, closed. This is money that we can’t get back.  

‘Arts and hospitality unite… Lawsuit?’

‘It’s been over 12 months and we can’t work out how to safely quarantine people who return to Australia. If this was Karen in HR, she’d be fired by now. 

‘Who’s going to pay back the $$ for loss of earnings to the hospitality and ARTS community who can’t just ‘pick it up’ next week?!
