Things look pretty shark
in NSW. Their lockdown could go on for months, with other states keeping borders hard shut.
New cases in SA & VIC are all being traced, to known exposure sites, so reasonable hope, they will come out of lockdown in next 1-3 weeks. They have done it before recently. VIC have learnt the lesson of previous failures.
QLD 1 case, WA no cases - so life goes on, though in QLD we continue to wear masks outside the home as we should. Both states have since the pandemic started, taken a hardline with quick border closures etc, and have handled Covid well. The risk is some fudgeers sneaking across the NSW/QLD stateline with the virus. It's a large border.
Really who the fudge knows, but this far out from a late October A League start date, having all the A League teams relocate to QLD (as NRL & AFL are doing now) for a hub to start the season, looks one prospect. Victoria may have things under control, but going on history likely higher risk of another outbreak.
Then when the states & Federal Govt finally agree, on basically a date when borders will no longer be closed, lockdowns will cease, and the virus will be 'tolerated in the community' - you move to a normal H&A season, if not before.
At least the APL has plenty of time to plan ahead, unlike NRL & AFL who are caught up in all this mid season.
Should add I'm age 52, and I'll be double vaccinated by next Saturday. Mate in Melbourne age 48, is already double jabbed. Neither of us are essential/health workers.
