When the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was identified in Australia on 25 January 2020 none of us could comprehend the world-changing events that were about to unfold and envelop the planet. As borders closed and mandatory quarantining was introduced, groups of professionals pulled up their sleeves and got to work. While the rest of us were told to stay home and isolate they did their job to ensure we were all safe, protected, informed, feed and supported. These heroes are our frontline workers, and they have redefined the Australian spirit.
