Also the NBN was affect...

Re: COVID-19 Discussion and Information

Glad you're recovering HB. Sounds like it was an awful experience, especially having to be at the point of visiting the hospital. Hope your sister is OK too Rivergirl.
Thanks snowfall. Still waiting for results, over 60 people have it from her ship now. Look after yourself
