Somehow both the best and worst possible timing. Minimal effects to their training and preparation at the club, but on a personal note, sucks they have to spend Christmas in iso.
That's the problem is their Xmas is stuffed , they will be okay . I posted it on the Corona thread with the NSW Gov having to bring back masks indoors

Worst timing, especially visiting friends/family. Assume the yo
I’m pretty sure Ryan Clarke was one of those.
And he Flew over to Melbourne the next day, saw him at the popular venue in Melbourne The Espy that night, amarty and Blakey too

Yea, think it'll be the norm. Already seeing with other sports, especially in the US. Squad depth will be key again this season with covid hanging around...

It is fine. They are vaxxed. It is the Xi strain even though they call it omicron.

Bad cold and carry on at worst.

This fear porn has to stop. More chance of being eaten by a shark or hit by a train.

Who really gives a sh*t. Honestly. They now have natural immunity. Awesome as far as I am concerned.

Yeah, probably going to have to get used to news like this amongst the NSW and VIC teams.

I think the Government isnt going to do anything at this point.

I hope they are fine. I really hope they don’t have any long term symptoms as some do.

As an aside, my in-laws contracted the virus in 2019. One of them was pretty much fine. The other died within 3 weeks. I encourage everyone to wear masks and do the right thing.

Not since they have been at the club last Wednesday. Generally, any such stories like visits to charities and hospitals are held back by the media team to go live after the fact.
It was on our Social Media late today , poor timing i would think

The media are again driving this way above where it should be.
It was to be expected that the number of covid positive cases would increase once we fully opened up. People may say that we are 90% double dosed with vaccination but that leaves 10% who are not. 10% of the population of Sydney is almost 550K people.
The majority of people who get covid who are forced to go to hospital are those who are not vaccinated.
Those who are vaxxed may still get it yet only have mild symptoms but they will then pass it on to others. This won't change.
On the Melbourne news tonight, they again continued to sprout about omnicron and how quickly it spreads yet we had zero new cases of omnicron today and have a total number of active cases of 27. 27!!!
We have to live with this bloody thing and it would also help if people didn't rush off to get tested after waking up in the morning and having a sneeze.
