We are two or three weeks into the new normal of self-isolation, working from home and social distancing and the world seems to be coping.
We are all settling into new routines and for me that means limiting my shopping to once a week instead of two or three times.
I went to the shops yesterday to get supplies and noted the "X marks the spot" signs on the floor two metres apart indicating the new way of queuing.
Not that the queues are great anyway that I've noticed and it is also good to see supermarket supplies come back to near normal as people realise that panic buying is unnecessary though toilet paper and hand sanitiser remains in short supply.
As for where we stand in Queensland overall, as of Friday April 2 the state has 57 new confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) raising the total to 835 overall.
These remain concentrated in the South-East corner though Cairns has 24, Rockhampton 8, Darling Downs 39, Mackay 11, Townsville 20 and Wide Bay 19.
There remains zero cases in the North West, Central West and South West hospital and health services so that's great news for us west of the Divide though we must remain vigilant.
This week the state government announced the closure of a number of locations such as picnic areas, toilet facilities, lookouts, popular walking tracks, swimming areas and four-wheel drive beach recreation areas in National Parks across Queensland, following the closure of National Park campgrounds last week.
Of course business is doing it tough and many have closed their doors across Mount Isa and the wider community.
We need to support those who are still open as best we can.
The new National Government has taken some extraordinary steps in recent days and weeks with massive stimulus measures and other packages aimed at softening the blow as much as possible.
The government has announced $320 billion in stimulus measures, with $130 billion for six months of wage subsidies at the heart of the package.
But as the PM warned on Friday, there are no "magic numbers" on the spread of the virus that would trigger getting the economy back on its feet.
"On the other side of this there's a long road back to recovery, I'm trying to get Australia in the best possible place when we start that process," he said.
