Cannot believe the entitlement of that couple from Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula, who allegedly came back from Aspen and just continued on business as usual, infecting people as they went.

You are a disgrace and you deserve to be named and shamed. I hope no one dies due to your scant disregard for human life. It's people like you who have made authorities take the measures they have which has led to job losses. You are scum. Stay at home you selfish cretins.

Little sympathy also for the couple with 2 young kids stranded after attending a wedding in Peru.  They left on 14 March, well after the travel warnings had started.

Oh - don't you know OP?  Rich people don't get sick !  Heavens above !  You must know that.

And even IF they do get sick, they certainly won't be going to a public hospital to see a doctor.

I read an article (US paper) where they refused to be tested in Aspen so it wouldn’t cut short their Ski holiday.  They refused to follow isolation protocols and were nearly arrested over there.

We are the responsible ones in this; people have nothing better to do than be nasty. If we lived in Box Hill and I’d been to Bali, no one would care, would they?’

They should be put on Christmas Island for quarantine. So should the potential cause of the Qld cluster who also returned from Aspen just prior to attending a big party.

All incoming people should be quarantined in a government facility (and charged for it). These are just two examples. There would be thousands of returning citizens right now who are being trusted to self quarantine with no follow ups.

do you have a link?  Are they Americans or Australians?  Do/did they have the virus?

Its very upsetting that people have such disregard for fellow humans :(

Was it the same couple? That would be outrageous!

It's more than thousands, there are three thousand alone, on ships stuck somewhere in the oceans.

If cases can be traced to this couple, and they die they should be charged with manslaughter.  Not sure they can, but that's the end result of their behaviour.

They have been named in a Mad ****ing Witches facebook post, amongst other names.

And now they're indignant.

It’s disgusting, but we need to remember that it won’t just be the rich, they are the story that will sell, it concerns me greatly how many people who should be staying home probably aren’t.

That’s why I am staying the **** home!!!

I wonder if there are any law changes to allow criminal charges to be laid against people who refuse to comply with quarantine and testing regardless of exposure to the virus? $1000 spot fine won’t make any difference to people like that but having a criminal record would.

we are too soft in this country! I know in Greece if they get caught outside without prior approval it’s a 150euro on the spot fine.

There are some horrible rumours going around down here that they got clearance and arrived before the self isolation rule and received 2 negative tests (one in the USA and one in aus) and that the one person who made the complaints has it in for this couple.

What is just as concerning is the amount of people who have flocked down here from melb today. The beach car parks the all the way down are full. Restaurants and cafes still have tables set up for people to sit!

I'd be reporting the restaurants and cafes.  I think there's now a hotline, but can't remember where I saw it.

The complaints about the couple are 1) that they ignored common sense, and didn't self isolate because they didn't have to, were home 1.5 days before the deadline. That's just stupid and selfish.

And 2), they eventually tested positive and THEN went shopping and to the golf course.  That's what the newspaper report says, anyway.

My neighbour came back from New York on Sunday 14th, and with all of the advice and knowledge that so many of our cases were coming from the USA, decided many days before she got back, that she would be self-isolating, and still is.

So there would have been plenty information around for them to decide what the right thing was to do in the first place.  I could understand a desperate trip to the supermarket by one of them, I cannot comprehend going to a crowded 21st.

If there's evidence they went out after testing positive hopefully they'll be fined.

First fines have been issued in NSW:

I don't believe the woman should have been given a warning, though. We don't have the luxury of people doing it twice before they're fined.

Even if they came back a few days prior to the ban, use your common sense. I assume they are well educated individuals who have not been living under a rock.

Don't roam about business as usual after coming back from the USA or anywhere else overseas  for that matter. Don't wait for the government to make decisions for you.  Stay home! That goes for anyone rich or poor.

People in my town thankfully seem to be mostly sensible. I don't think I've see a kid bar my own at all the last 3 days. And I've been to the supermarket and the post office (and work), but nothing else.

I drove past a skate park yesterday and there were plenty of teenagers there.

I don't go past it all that often so don't know if it's more or less than usual.

I've seen quite a few kids roaming around this week.

i guess it’s hard to know what’s acceptable “roaming” and what’s not...clearly congregating en masse at a skate park or playground is not ideal. our house is on Sydney’s bay run....so we’ve been doing that with our kids every day this week as a means of getting fresh air and exercise - many other families have the same idea...many walking dogs as well. no one talking or touching....i think exercise is still allowed. likewise going out for supplies....yes, i’m seeing kids with a parent in the shops - again maybe killing two birds with the one stone..getting exercise and supplies - both still allowed. no one is congregating as such.

I don't think I can cope walking at our neighbourhood athletics track any more, it's at the end of my street.

Too many sweaty dudes sprinting past me, too close when they had a choice of 5 other lanes.
One swore at me last night because I reacted and asked him to keep away.
Another one spat on the track which nearly pushed me over the edge.
Then to see a young girl cartwheeling on the track.

I think I'll have to walk the streets at night.
