The Northern Beaches cluster has spread to the Sydney CBD and the NSW Premier is urging people to avoid the city for Boxing Day sales. She is imploring people to wear masks, but masks are not mandated in Sydney like they are here. Though we have had 56 days now without any community transmission in Victoria, people are still wearing masks while out shopping. It’s become common practice. We did some shopping at Myer today and picked up a few things at Spotlight. There were nine new cases in Sydney reported today. There were none in Victoria.
