  1. as in the alp party, dna party, go green party or social gathering? Where was the police? So if we don’t know how he got it, we all should stay indoors for ten days cause thIs info is real VAGUE! Like we getting very careless and matter of fact these days but we might want to read the world news.

  2. @ Covido
    Wouldn’t that be expected if proved that certain protocols were not followed? Why the reference to the church? How devilish!

  3. What about the children that are attending school? If he contracted the virus at the party, this means that there are more people that are infected. Are there children that are attending school at the homes of these people that were at that party? Since they are not sure how he got infected shouldn’t the children remain at home? Until all is settled just to be safe?was just thinking.

  4. Can the police or Covid people explain why they cannot contact trace ?
    If a person at the party does not want to give info then fine &jailtime for a couple days. This is too important for the entire country to come down to a group of people who do not want to cooperate. We, the general public, are also entitled to know the area this person lives, the school if a student, place of work if he has a job,, we could help with contact tracing, by saying , oh, I was in the shop please test me. Or , my child goes to that school, please test our family… We need swift & positive action on Covid
