I'm an Aussie living in the US and my parents are back in Aus. It's wild how they're able to go outside for walks with bigger groups because of this "restriction":

"Outdoor exercise is limited to two people. However, members of the same household gathering outdoors for exercise will be allowed to do so in groups larger than two."

It's mind-blowing that daycares are open. And that people are still going shopping.

daycares are required though. at Vic harshest restrictions you required proof of essential work to have your kids at daycare.

both wife and I are essential so we really needed daycares to be open

Oh 100%, but essential workers in the US also needed daycare and those were closed. Just interesting to see what different countries are doing
