Slowly, opening up

The island state of Western Australia looks to be opening up after almost eight months closed due to COVID-19. Whilst we’ve fared so much better than others around the world, we’ve taken a more hardline stance to protect ourselves which has actually seen our economy the strongest in the nation.

Today, our premier announced we’re opening up from November 14, cautiously. We’re still cautious towards New South Wales and Victoria who’ve issues with the virus to differing degrees, but welcoming towards other states.

It’s nice to see things begin to return towards a sense of normalcy, even if just locally at this stage. I thought I’d have a look at flight costs east at this early stage, they weren’t horrendous, however they do reflect the pain these airlines have endured being closed for the most part. I’d have to admit hesitancy flying at this stage not knowing who might carry the virus and the limited ability for masks to protect on a long flight.
