Surely this time they have gone too far: Now they’re confiscating alcohol delivered to locked-down Australian apartments if booze volume exceeds state-sanctioned limits. You can see from the way this is written, it’s for a non-Australian audience who think Australia is run by despicable idiots.
In New South Wales — a southeastern state encompassing Sydney — alcohol deliveries to apartments under COVID-19 lockdown are being confiscated if booze volume exceeds limits mandated by the Ministry of Health, news.com.au reported.
The powers that be are enacting daily alcohol limits to “ensure the safety of health staff and residents,” the outlet added.
— and it should come as no surprise that they don’t like it….
Residents are allowed to receive a ration of one of the following: six beers or pre-mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375ml bottle of spirits.
Excess alcohol is being confiscated until lockdown rules are lifted.
Residents can consult with a clinician if they think they need more than the allowed limit.
A Sydney Local Health District spokeswoman confirmed the limits are in place in NSW Health’s Special Health Accommodation where COVID-positive patients and close contacts are sent for isolation, news.com.au reported.
Here’s the thing. Anyone who is afraid to go out should sit home. The rest of us should be allowed to just get on with our lives.
