Why wait for Monday? Infectious diseases expert calls for weekend gatherings

Article image for Why wait for Monday? Infectious diseases expert calls for weekend gatherings

An infectious diseases expert is backing calls to allow Sydneysiders a backyard gathering on Saturday or Sunday, ahead of Monday’s official reopening.

The ANU’s Professor Peter Collignon told Jim Wilson outdoor gatherings in homes are “a pretty low-risk activity” where all guests are vaccinated, and there’s no medical reason they can’t go ahead immediately.

“A lot of this is arbitrary.

“Having people over for a barbeque outside is much safer than having the same number of people indoors on Monday night.”
