A word on fact-checked information...

We triple-checked the information about the hairdressers. The Premier and the Government have verbally and in other documents made this clear like here. We'd never ever usually change an official document that we transcribe but there was an error in this one so we did - it is a State of Disaster all. We left the original picture as we want you to see our source (and there has not been an accessible or any other version for that matter shared since).

Why share all this, you ask? Because we want you to trust the information you get from IDEAS. Always. There's enough going on that you should not have to worry if what we are saying is up to date. We are sorry there are no hairdressers for now, but we are not sorry you have the right information to be safe. And we really feel for the person who made the error, people are working under immense pressure and it's tough.
