Scott Morrison has donned a mask as he went grocery shopping just hours after NSW residents were urged to wear face coverings in public. 

Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Sunday advised NSW residents to wear masks outside from Monday as the state desperately tries to avoid a Victoria-style outbreak. 

In solidarity with the latest advice, the Prime Minister shared a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a disposable covering as he headed out to the supermarket.

‘Had to pop out to pick up a few things here in Sydney, so followed the NSW Premier’s advice announced earlier today (and put a mask on in the car before heading into the shops),’ he wrote.

‘Protects others you come in contact with in enclosed areas, in particular the retail salespeople just doing their jobs. 

‘Not a lot to ask. All in this together.’ 

Australians praised the Prime Minister for ‘leading by example’.

‘Well done Scomo ! We are all in this together!’ one woman wrote.

Another added: ‘You’re a champion, leading by example.’

Ms Berejiklian said authorities would not make mask usage mandatory in NSW, but revised their current recommendations to address four specific circumstances.

Masks should be worn by public-facing employees such as hospitality or supermarket workers, worshippers and residents of suburbs near COVID-19 clusters, as well as in situations where social distancing is impossible.

‘We have been talking about masks for several weeks but obviously the persistent situation in Victoria gives us cause for alarm in terms of the potential for further seeding in NSW, and it is about risk mitigation strategy,’ Ms Berejiklian said on Sunday.

‘We’re going to the next stage of assessing what else and how else we can decrease the risk and break the current chain coming through NSW.’

Ms Berejiklian said she will be heeding the advice of health authorities in her daily life, calling wearing a mask ‘the fourth line of defence’.

‘I want to stress it is not compulsory, but it is a strong recommendation from NSW Health, given where we are in the pandemic, given the risk posed from Victoria and given the rate of community transmission in New South Wales,’ she said. 

‘I myself, when I next go grocery shopping, will be wearing a mask.’

FACE MASK RECOMMENDATIONS IN NEW SOUTH WALES:

Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced on Sunday the four situations she strongly recommends NSW residents should wear face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the state.

Residents who live in or near coronavirus clusters are recommended to wear face masks in public, as well as churchgoers in places of worship.

Workers who interact directly with the general public such as hospitality and supermarket workers should also wear masks, along with anyone in a situation where social distancing is impossible. 

‘Firstly, if you are in an enclosed space and you cannot guarantee social distancing, such as public transport, such as when you are buying groceries, you should be wearing a mask,’ Ms Berejiklian said.

‘We would also like to see more staff to a customer facing wearing masks, whether they are in hospitality venues or whether they are in retail. Whenever they are facing customers, we strongly recommend that they wear masks.

‘If you are attending a place of worship, we want you to wear a mask. If you are attending a church, synagogue or mosque, we would like you to wear a mask.

‘And finally, if you are in an area where there is high community transmission or a number of cases, we want you to wear a mask.’

NSW recorded 12 new cases – with just one in hotel quarantine – in the 24 hours to 8pm on Saturday from almost 22,500 cases.

Eight people are in intensive care, with at least 103 being treated for the virus in hospital.

Two of the 12 new cases are childcare workers from the Advanced Early Learning Centre in Merrylands, where a staff member worked for three days while infected last week.

NSW Health’s Dr Jeremy McAnulty on Saturday said seven cases in the past week had not been linked to known cases, emanating from southwestern Sydney, western Sydney, southeastern Sydney and Sydney local health districts.

The announcement followed the Saturday death of an 83-year-old man connected to the Crossroads Hotel cluster in southwest Sydney died, taking the NSW death toll to 52 and the nationwide tally past 200.

It was the first coronavirus-related death in NSW since late May.

The Thai Rock Wetherill Park cluster is nearing 100 cases, while the cluster in Potts Point has reached 24 and the funeral events cluster sits at 33.

A popular venue on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, meanwhile, was on Saturday forced to shut after hosting a COVID-positive patron on the afternoon of July 24.

The Bavarian in Manly underwent deep cleaning and reopened to the public on Saturday afternoon. Patrons on the afternoon of July 24 should monitor for respiratory symptoms.

The Harpoon & Hotel Harry in Surry Hills, Matinee Coffee in Marrickville and Tan Viet in Cabramatta are among other venues required to undertake deep cleaning in recent days.

NSW Police Minister David Elliott on Sunday said nine fines had been issued overnight for breaching restrictions, while Liquor and Gaming NSW has fined Sydney’s Watsons Bay Hotel $5,000 after finding patrons drinking while standing and poorly-spaced poker machines.

It was the 15th NSW venue to be fined in the past three weeks for breaches.

‘It beggars belief that anybody would turn on the TV news bulletin today and see what’s going on in Melbourne and want to breach the law in NSW,’ Mr Elliott told reporters.

NSW Police said the fines were issued on Saturday night in relation to large parties in East Jindabyne and Maroubra, while a separate beach party in Mosman is being investigated after two 16-year-old girls required medical treatment for excessive alcohol consumption.

robin williamss daughter hits back at eric trump for sharing video of her late father

Robin Williams’s daughter Zelda has condemned Eric Trump for digging out one of her father’s old comedy clips, in which he mocks Joe Biden.

In the 2009 clip, Williams, who died in 2014, pokes fun at the then-vice president.

‘We still have great comedy out there,’ said Williams. 

‘There’s always rambling Joe Biden – what the f***?

‘Joe says s*** that even people with Tourette’s go: ‘No. What is going on?’

Williams said that Biden was ‘like your uncle who is on a new drug but hasn’t got the dosage right’.

He then imitated Biden, saying: ‘”I’m proud to work with Barack America” – he’s not a superhero, you idiot!

‘”When FDR was on television…” – there was no TV then, sit down, Joe.’

Trump, 36, retweeted the clip on Thursday with the headline: ‘Robin Williams Just Savages Joe Biden.’

On Saturday Williams, 31, voiced her displeasure at Trump’s use of her father’s work.  

‘While we’re “reminiscing” (to further your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your Dad,’ she tweeted. 

‘I did. Promise you, it’s much more “savage”. 

‘Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can.’

Williams’s comment was ‘liked’ 79,000 times.

On social media many pointed to a 2012 clip in which Williams described visiting Atlantic City in New Jersey, where Donald Trump owned casinos.

Williams described the place as being ‘like the Wizard of Oz on acid: junkies and pimps and pizza – oh my!’

He continued: ‘Donald Trump is the Wizard of Oz. He plays monopoly with real f****** buildings – this is a scary man.

‘And he owns all these beauty pageants. Miss America, Miss Universe.

‘Isn’t it like Michael Vick owning a series of pet stores? It’s a f****** catch and release program for him.

Trump seemed not to realize that Robin Williams had also made fun of his father

‘This is man who says: “My Daughter is hot.” Even people in Arkansas said that’s f****** wrong.

‘And that f****** hair? I believe the hair is The Donald. The body is a maintenance system for the hair.’ 

Williams has been outspoken about protecting the legacy of her father, who died by suicide at the age of 63 in August 2014.

He was suffering from Lewy Body Dementia, a type of brain disease that affected his thinking, memory and movement control. It is the second-most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease.

Two weeks ago she marked what would have been her father’s 69th birthday.  

‘Today would’ve been Dad’s 69th birthday, so to honor him (& that glorious number), I will be donating $69.69 to as many local homeless shelters as I can,’ she tweeted. 

‘Join me if you like, but regardless, know I am wishing you all at least one hearty, immature belly laugh on Dad today.’

the dip and onion relish from aldi mums are adding to their spaghetti bolognese to lift the flavour

An Australian mother has shared her two favourite Aldi buys to include in a spaghetti bolognese – sparking a frenzy of buyers wanting to purchase the unique pasta ingredients.

The woman uses Mediterranean Delite Garlic Dip ($3.50) and Colway Caramelised Onion Relish ($2.69) to season her tomato-filled pasta sauce, giving the combination a ‘thumbs up’ of approval.

‘I use about three-quarter’s of a jar of the onion relish and half of the garlic dip for a kilo of mince… I just add until it is to your taste,’ she said.

While they’re not traditionally products that would be mixed into a bolognese, the additions came with high praise from the online Aldi community.

‘Omg that garlic dip is to die for and so yummy,’ one woman said.

‘The garlic dip is going to disappear at this rate! It’s literally life changing,’ said another.

The ultimate bolognese recipe with garlic dip and caramelised onion:

Ingredients:

– 1 large brown onion

– 1kg of pork mince 

– 1-2 tablespoons of minced garlic

– 2 400g tins of crushed tomatoes

– 4-5 big tablespoons of tomato paste

– A big sprinkle of Italian mixed herbs 

– 1 beef stock cube

– 1 cup of milk

– Garlic dip and onion relish to taste 

Method: 

1. Brown onions, mix in garlic and stir for a minute or so.

2. Brown mince, add Italian herbs, stir in tomato paste.

3. Add crushed tomatoes, stock cube and milk (if you feel it needs more liquid add a touch more milk).

4. Lit it simmer.

5. Once the sauce has thickened up I add in the garlic dip and onion relish.

6. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy.

A third added: ‘I really like the relish on its own so I’ll have to try it mixed with the dip. Good thinking!’ 

The woman also adds a cup of milk to her bolognese recipe instead of water to give the recipe a more ‘liquid-y’ finish.

Others have found the garlic dip – which is relatively new – to be delicious as a pizza base with seafood or as the ‘butter’ in a cheese toastie.  

‘The is the last post I needed to see before I headed over to Aldi,’ one woman joked.

‘Evangelical’ Christians armed with a megaphone face off against Hillsong followers in Sydney

evangelical christians armed with a megaphone face off against hillsong followers in sydney

Divisive footage has emerged of an ‘extremist’ Christian church leader preaching to a large group of Hillsong worshippers about their ‘sinfulness’. 

The Church of Adelaide filmed the showdown outside Hillsong’s campus in Sydney’s inner city and posted the confrontation to its online platforms last Friday.

Hillsong has since hit back, claiming the preacher was from an ‘extremist group’ that targets not only them but other evangelical churches.

The footage showing a large public gathering is believed to have be filmed prior to the coronavirus pandemic.

Armed with a megaphone, a man shouts at dozens of Hillsong followers of all ages, including children from across the street in ‘a true gospel preaching of the True Christ.’

‘The gospel of Jesus Christ is a powerful God. Have you ever known a gospel like that?’ the man preaches. 

He’s accompanied by a second man he claims was a former Hillsong follower for many years. 

‘This man right here went to Hillsong friends, for years he went to Hillsong he was in sin. 

‘He was overcome by sexual sin. They said you’re fine. The pastor said you were fine. I am in sexual sin too.’

His address was briefly interrupted by the arrival of two police officers who were called to the scene to investigate the commotion. 

The man appears to carry on chanting about Jesus shortly afterwards. 

The Church of Adelaide later shared the footage titled ‘Hillsong Exposed: True Gospel Preaching of The True Christ Outside of Hillsong Church’ to its YouTube channel, which has more than 1,100 subscribers.

It’s unclear what Christian denomination the supposed ‘Church of Adelaide’ falls under.

Hillsong hit back at the group’s claims when contacted by Daily Mail Australia on Monday. 

‘This was not filmed last week as Hillsong Church has been meeting online since March,’ a spokesperson said.

‘This group is an extremist group who targets not only Hillsong but other evangelical churches who believe that Jesus loves everyone. We prefer to focus on love not hate.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Church of Adelaide and NSW Police for further comment.

The Church of Adelaide describes itself as believing the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired words of God.

‘We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each co-eternal in being, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections,’ the church states on its website.

The church also believes Lord Jesus Christ became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Hillsong states similar values on its website with the belief the Bible is God’s Word, an eternal God who is the creator of all things who exists in three persons.
