COVID-19 Update 2023
We are now in the social recovery stage of the pandemic where normalized relationships are being reinvigorated. Many within our community are now adopting a lassiez faire attitude, a move encouraged by governments throughout the country, acknowledging that COVID remains active but that cautionary self-regulated measures are the responsibility of the individual. Those who are vulnerable should continue to adopt preventative measures including updating of vaccination as it becomes available, mask-wearing indoors, meetings in outdoor settings, limiting physical contact and maintaining hand-sanitizing. The vaccination of the Australian population has been substantially successful even though detractors who seek to minimize the significance of the virus and those who subscribe to conspiracies about the etiology of the virus remain an active force within our community. The conflicting thoughts can be confusing but the overriding consideration remains science and the advice from medical experts. We are far from over this pandemic with more variants likely to emerge over time – this has been the experience of the first pandemic, influenza, which has regularly morphed and continues to cause death and harm over a hundred years later. We ask that you exercise common sense in order to avoid exposure by simply adopting preventative measures that are known to work. The mask is inconvenient however it IS our friend. The past years have been difficult for many. It is right that we be optimistic for the future but it is also sensible to feed that optimism with caution.
