The Premier of New South Wales decided to do a state wide lockdown as 466 new locally transmitted cases were recently reported. Stay at home orders will be applied across the whole of New South Wales, with people only permitted to leave home to shop for essentials, receive medical care, exercise outdoor with one other person, and work if residents cannot work from home. Schooling will also be pushed back online. More than 500 army personnel have been deployed to help police monitor compliance. This kind of control on ones own citizens reflect an authoritarian government, not a free Australia.
