With a couple of collectable shows coming up in March and April in the Penrith and Windser area,should the organisers cancel these shows.Both shows will have in excess of 500 sellers and buyers at these shows.I think they should for the health and safety of everyone.

No offense to many fine people here but I would give the Corona Virus no chance against some of the hygiene practices I have encountered at some of these shows...... LOL

Thankyou for your help.
there are not to be any gatherings of more than 500 humans in any 1 location, until further notice.
any breaking of these laws will be prosecuted.
This could change to 10 people at any time.
A lot of people pick up cards, boxes, albums etc, then put them back down on tables, I know I see people doing it, I sell at shows as well.
I do not see sellers cleaning there products with bacterial wipes, just will not happen.

I went to the markets last sunday,and there were people everywhere,but not 500.But it seemed most people did not worry about it.I also take the elderly people on shopping outtings through the week,up to 18 at a time,and they don,t seem to care about the virus.I myself are in my mid 60,s and i worry about everything.

we have been trying to organise a semi fair down here, but is to hard to enforce regulations with a duty of care factor.
I went to the markets this morning,plenty of people everywhere.The gentlemen who runs the market told me because its not enclosed,he will keep running it,till he is told otherwise.I just don,t get it.

all markets have been canned down here, do not see any garage sales either.
do not go anywhere near Adelaide, so do not know what its like there.
I thought it would be closed today,but no.I drove past 2 golf clubs,there car parks where full.The shopping trips i do through the week with the senior citizens have been down in numbers.2shopping centres we go to seem to be a little bit quieter,but people are there chasing the elusive rolls of toilet paper.
