Great to see that the numbers are going down in Victoria but there is still a long way to go so hopefully we don't get complacent.

The government suggested they will be easing restrictions on Sunday (and possibly be more relaxed than anticipated in the "roadmap").

What changes, if any, outside the normal "roadmap" would everyone like to see?

I want to be able to see my immediate family. I understand reasoning as to why they wouldn't allow family gatherings, but still. :)

5km bubble removed so my mum can get something from the shops for me! (It’s not essential). other than that I don’t really care, people are overrated  :P except on zoom you can shut the laptop lid if there’s a conversation and you don’t feel like it lol

It'd be cool to have household bubbles implemented early since being in a sharehouse + no intimate partner means I haven't been able to visit anyone. I understand that might not be feasible but yeah that.

In Melbourne, you can have 1 visiting event per day with up to 2 adults (and any dependents that need to come) from the same household per day. This means that if you visit your friend, you can't visit any other house, and they can't have anyone else visit. Slightly more complicated than the bubble IMO, but the flexibility is really nice - particularly being in a sharehouse.

On top of that, still only allowed up to 10 in a public space - but no more household limit on the 10!! This is very nice. This is very happy making me. Can finally meet up with all my friends.

Also, twitter is great right now. #NoBeersForScotty and #NoBeersForNewsCorp are both trending, and it's hilarious

Dear VCE 3/4 Chemistry students: you do not need to know how to do pH calculations for your exam. That is all.

How about doughnuts and related hashtags? I heard that doughnuts were free at a couple of places yesterday to celebrate the lack of new cases, but not sure if truth or myth.

On a public transport note of things, literally the next day after Dan Andrews mentioned “businesses can reopen” (this morning), the train was the most packed I’ve seen it in months. (I’ve been taking public transport regularly during the entire pandemic, as I’m an “essential worker”.) That says a lot.

Granted, the train was 5 mins late, but for a train before peak hour and on a relatively OK (not too busy, not too empty) line, it was strange to not get a socially distanced seat and have to stand for once.

I just hope the coronavirus cases don’t rise much again with the (somewhat gradual) reopening of metro Melbourne.

This is why I'm rerouting myself out of the city for the rest of the week, because I'm terrified of being back to packed trains (I'm going to swap out at North Melbourne and go via Upfield line instead of via Flinders/Loop). Both my trains today were empty, and so was the bus to/from Royal Park though, so hopefully still as good tomorrow!

It appears that "peak" time where it's not so distanced on my line is around 2:30ish atm - which makes sense given I think that's when most inner-city kids knock off haha.

I just want to go to my grandma's - I can't recall a single time I've seen her this year, even before COVID :(

Day 1, peak hour of new rules: there's a few more people on my train (I count 11 including myself at Footscray), but all properly distanced. Shame that a few people still have their noses out of masks though.

Hopefully, everyone maintains social distancing and continue to wear masks. I think with social distancing people generally do it when it is really easy to do with a small amount of people but once it starts getting more crowded people tend not to go out of their way to make distance.

I didn't hear about the donut thing till yesterday, went looking in my local grocery store, and found some Halloween donuts.  Maybe a mixed message, but they're really nice donuts :)

I think if we ever get the fabled "office workers able to work from home can return" message, like was originally planned for July, we may have masking on trains but won't have capacity for social distancing.  But I'm assuming the government will be even more cautious with that than they were in June, so who knows when or if it will happen.
