In December 2021, the Parliament of Victoria enacted the Public Health and Wellbeing Amendment (Pandemic Management) Act 2021 (Vic), and other jurisdictions are sure to follow. Calls for harmonisation have already been voiced. How will the jurisdictions follow? Will each jurisdiction become a state laboratory or, if harmonisation is pursued, will this path lie through intended, spontaneous or secret harmonisation?
