    Doesn't really work in this case. No vaccine and infected "healthy" people can be carriers without even realising they're infected.
    A lot of people aren't taking this seriously and that's why it spreads so fast. It's the "I ain't sick so I don't care" scenario.
    Total lockdown is required to prevent a massive spike that will break health care systems.

    Our Prime Minister is an idiot, he should be doing what New Zealand is doing right now and they've got heaps less cases (think they have zero deaths atm too).

    Some people have a higher chance of getting this even in a full lockdown. Anybody working with the sick (like in hospitals) but also emergency services like the police.
    Spoiler warning:
    My brother in law is a cop, his immediate family have isolated themselves from everybody which hasn't been a government recommendation (state or federal) but it's the smart thing to do. If he gets it then it'll spread around the family but at least this way it won't get to the older generation via him.
    I've isolated my parents, I go out and get stuff for them as needed. Helps that I only live next door, plus we're in a rural area so they can still go outside in their own yard because it's quite large and secluded.

    People stuck at home now, people asking for my steam codes. It would be great if you guys had something to trade for them. I know they're steam codes, but I still paid money for them. I guess I should make a list of games on my steam wish-list I could trade for.

    I agree on trading, or at least going to an established EP member, not just some unknown with one post.

    I can edit your thread title and add for trade or sale if you want? You can then edit your first post to reflect the title.

    That would be great. If it comes down to it, I can give them away, but I really want to try for trades first. Thanks. I've also edited my post on games I'd trade for.

    Title changed.

    I'd make it clear in the first post that ideally you only want sale or trade and with established members. But failing that, any new member you deal with would have to either pay first or send you a trade code. You can always send the code once you've received payment or check a code is working.

    Those are good things to keep in mind.

    Hard cash is free of taxes/fees. But wash your hands thoroughly afterwards

    Venmo...? idk what you mean by freedom.
    Depends on what you want. Theres gonna be overhead with any third party handling your money, especially if you want some sort of buyer/seller protection. If someone is buying a game from you for example and you don't want fees, tell the buyer to pay you on paypal as a "gift" or to accept the charges themselves. Paypal is very generous when it comes to providing free services. I move money around all the time. Theres not even a fee to transfer my balance directly to my bank account.
