Me and my husband were about to immigrate to Australia in the mid-April. Everything was sorted – visas, accommodation, jobs. And then all of this happened, borders closed, no flights. And we already gave notice at work and to our landlord, so we had to move somewhere really quick.
Lockdown arrived on 26 March and lasted for three weeks. Exercise, walking outside and walking your dog were prohibited. Many people here live in apartments and their dogs are used to walking on the beach but they've been confined for a month. Pretty cruel. You could only buy groceries or work in essential services. Later, the lockdown was prolonged for two more weeks. Opening up has four phases. Some businesses have opened, you can exercise and walk your dog between 6am and 9am. I'm just glad I have a dog and not a child at the moment. That would be anarchy!
