Volunteers’ News – July 2021

Well, my dears, here we are again in lockdown or Stay at Home, as the premier is now calling it. This time it is because of cases of the more contagious and virulent Delta variant of Covid-19 showing up in people around the City and suburbs.

It seems that masks may be mandatory for some time to come, so make sure your mask covers your nose. I’ve seen so many people with masks under noses and under chins. Don’t forget this deadly virus is airborne and it gets up your nose.

Cinemas, theatres and galleries
Most entertainment venues, clubs and pubs are closed until at least July 9. Check with them individually for further details or through the Service NSW app.

ABC iview and SBS On Demand
Lots of wonderful programs are on these free streaming services to keep you and your family entertained while staying at home. Not to forget all their fantastic music programs and superior news services.

ABC ‘You Can’t Ask That’
Congratulations, Dorothy McRae-McMahon, loved seeing you as part of You Can’t Ask That in June. This is such an interesting and inclusive program, and I love how many diverse lifestyles, views and people are represented. You can catch up on ABC iview Season 6.

Dorothy was also interviewed recently by FBi Radio’s Mia Hull for a program that aired on June 3. You can listen here: https://fbiradio.com/945fm/programs/out-of-the-box/
