‘liberty depriving’ measures. We have learned to live with these Big Brother-imposed measures to ensure we save the lives of countless mums, dads, sons, daughters, and mates. So, suck it up all you princes and princesses, do the right thing, follow the ‘Big Brother’ rules, wear your mask, check in with the QR codes and get vaxxed so more of us, our kids and our mates can still be around in 50 years’ time enjoying life, which is everyone’s birthright.

Mandatory mask wearing is not working. Supermarkets can’t seem to enforce this, unfortunately. If like me, you see a young couple with two children not complying with this, there is nothing the supermarket can do about it. The couple seemed proud to be defying the rules and were singing and encouraging their children to shout and scream, drawing all the attention to them. No, I did not approach them, as I am over 80 years of age and do not need any possible altercation with them, to say nothing of

having them speaking to me maskless. I suggest you keep your local police station on speed dial and report them directly to the police. The rule is toothless and simply does not work. Perhaps fining will. Joyce Walters Ballina

Teacher survey The Echo’s survey of local teachers regarding vaccination was as illuminating as it was disappointing. One respondent popped their head out the rabbit hole to claim government was hiding evidence of hundreds of deaths resulting from vaccination. So the entire health workforce is collaborating in a conspiracy? It’s probably best that someone with this talent for forensic analysis is not left alone with children. The rapid development of not one, but several vaccines for COVID is the most stunning success in biomedical history. If people choose to ignore this and take their chances with the virus, that’s their lookout. But not if they are in daily contact with other people’s children. Teachers who feel affronted by the vaccine mandate need a lesson in ethics and responsibility. So here it is: Consider the

unvaccinated and unmasked Californian teacher who infected half the class of primary aged students. Those students then infected family and friends. Other staff were also infected. Did the teacher involved act ethically and responsibly? If you’re a teacher and you can’t answer ‘No’ then schools are not an appropriate workplace for you. BTW California now has a vaccine mandate for teachers. Alan Watterson Hastings Point

Thank you Lyon Thank you, Mayor Lyon for highlighting the risks in having visiting film crews, real estate speculators and the like visiting the Northern Rivers before suitable lockdowns are lifted and adequate vaccination levels are reached. Movement from hotspots should only be for compassionate grounds or essential services. Rod Murray Ocean Shores
