Words from your President
"Nobody told me they’d be days like these; Strange days indeed, most peculiar Mama!’ (Nobody told me, John Lennon).

There is little doubt that our closed international borders and our geographical location (an isolated, albeit large, island) have contributed to complacency regarding our approach to the management of this virus. In particular, our low vaccination rate has made Australia a prime target for the highly virulent COVID-19 Delta variant.
