A Newcastle woman has revealed how a last minute decision to head home saved her Christmas from being ruined by a super-spreader event.
In a video uploaded to TikTok on Thursday the woman, who goes by the user schmamity, revealed her friends had decided to go to the Argyle after their school formal on December 8.
But she decided against it because her social battery’ was running out.
The venue has since been named a Covid hotspot with more than 200 patrons testing positive for Covid-19. Hundreds of patrons have now been plunged into isolation.

The Newcastle woman told her followers she is feeling lucky for not attending.
‘When I chose to go home after formal instead of the Argyle and avoided Covid, unlike her friends two weeks before Christmas,’ she wrote alongside the video.
Many young people have taken to TikTok to share how catching Covid at the Argyle super-spreader event has ruined their Christmas plans.
The Argyle House has been linked to over 200 Covid-19 infections
TikToker Macey Craig was one of the unlucky partygoers who tested positive to the virus after attending The Argyle House in Newcastle on December 8.
Ms Craig said she caught the virus just three days before her birthday, meaning she would be quarantined away from her family for the holiday season.
‘Catching Covid three days before your birthday and not being able to travel home before Christmas or celebrate with your friends,’ she said in a video.
She also mouthed the lyrics from the Bruno Mars song Smokin Out The Window ‘not to be dramatic, but I wanna die’.

The TikToker was one of dozens of who went to the club that night and came down with the virus to vent their frustration.
‘Manifesting that life slows down a bit so I can take a break… and I got [classified as a] close contact… and tested positive and have to isolate for 14 days,’ another said.
University student Emily Keogh, 23, also shared her experience after catching the virus at the Argyle.
She and her friends filmed themselves partying and doing shots for a TikTok video unaware the virus was spreading rapidly throughout the popular night spot.
