Waited for the drizzle to back off before getting this morning’s pictures. Out at sea the east wind bump is 1.2 metres at 8 seconds. Tide was high a touch after 0700. Dee Why is in the knee to waist plus range.
As of this morning, I’m out of self-isolation so, according to the current advice from the NSW government, I can exercise in public space again (see below). Given the paltry conditions, I’m not planning to go for a surf, but maybe a bike ride around the lagoon later… of course there will be no stopping for a chat with folks and I’ll be maintaining distance at all times, remembering that whenever I’m out, the virus can find me. It persists on surfaces and you just need the one viral particle to come in contact with your eyes, nose or mouth and you’ll be shedding millions within a couple days and symptomatic anywhere from 1-10 days later. You will expose everyone around you to danger.
So apart from getting essential supplies, going to the doc, or work, or getting exercise, stay home.
NSW Government Outdoor exercise statement (link (opens in new window)
Yes, you can exercise outdoors but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.
Personal training, boot camps and fitness classes may be held outdoors in groups of no more than 10 people (including the person running the class) but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.
Social sporting-based activities may be held outdoors in groups of no more than 10 people but you must practise social distancing and personal hygiene.
Sporting activities may create the opportunity for physical contact between people and therefore can increase the risk of transmission of disease. The Australian Government’s Community Sport Guidelines provide advice in relation to organising or attending these activities.
A high pressure system near New Zealand stretches a ridge to the north coast. Winds are expected to tend more northerly as the high moves further east and a cold front moves through Bass Strait. This front is expected to bring a southerly change to southern New South Wales waters on Monday and the remainder on Tuesday. Another high will move to the southern Tasman on Tuesday in the wake of the front.
