COVID-19 news: Alice Springs woman diagnosed
That there is no published response from SecureNT about quarantine is disappointing, particularly with the further restrictions announced today (supervised quarantine at taxpayer expense from Wednesday and at the individual’s expense from Friday).
But Perrule, it would be surprising if, as you say, ALL on board QF796 on 22/3 were told to quarantine.
The Australian public health guidelines for COVID-19 are very clear that close contacts for tracing on aircraft are those seated within two rows of a confirmed case.

@ Evelyne: The rules at that time allowed, indeed encouraged, them to do what it is said they did.
People were transiting all over Australia after arriving from overseas.
We now know that was poor policy.
This couple were not obliged to isolate in Yulara, nor Melbourne, their presumed port of entry where they now would be required to.
I’m inclined to believe the public statements because, if incorrect, careers would be on the line when the truth came out.

Do what I do: a lesson for the government, police
Hal, that is a particularly harsh assessment.
The clear advice from the Police Commissioner is that the officer and his wife fully complied with the protocol as it was at that time.
Whether the protocol was correct is a different question.

The clear advice from the Police Commissioner is that the officer and his wife did not stop off in Alice to go shopping, Hazel.
He indicated their daughter stocked their pantry prior to their arrival in Harts Range.
They fully complied with the protocol as it was at that time.
Whether the protocol was correct is a different question.
I invite you to withdraw your comment.
