Can you imagine what it will be like, even in a few years' time, trying to holiday OS? QR codes or equivalent everywhere - do they have them OS or have they given up on contact tracing? Even if the world is vaccinated, we and they can still get the virus and spread it! FMD. By then there may be countless variations, each more "deadly" than the last . Or am I being too pessimistic?This is correct, not just tennis players. People on business, sportspeople, those with special skills etc. Celebs usually find a way too (fame and money talk). Maybe some cases of compassionate exemptions (eg dying parent). And of course foreign diplomats arriving at their Australian mission.
Most are required to do two weeks HQ. Foreign diplomats are just expected to do the right thing because they have diplomatic immunity from our laws.
The German couple was just a stuff-up at Sydney airport. Supposedly had no idea they were doing the wrong thing. (Hmmm )
Our borders are however closed pretty firmly to casual tourism and people travelling on personal business. AFAIK we still can't take overseas trips ourselves - certainly not if we want easy re-entry. The NZ travel bubble excepted.
Not that I'd want to go anywhere else right now ... except maybe NZ.
TG I got to see most of what I wanted to in the carefree times of last century.
