Do you have a link ?
The Government web site has not been updated. The Premier’s FB page has announced it, and was just confirmed again on a Seven News update. WA is shut to QLD.

I do so love a government that communicates their policy on. FB page but not on their own website.
Amateurs.

My point was NO hotel quarantine which is still correct.

rty for 25 people at his home after being instructed to isolate while he waited his test results.
So here we go again! Maybe it just wasnt made clear to him that he must isolate or maybe he was confused or maybe he didnt understand english very well or maybe he asked many times if he could hold a party & was told he could!
Im thinking he should run to the media now & demand a public apology from the government.
What he needs is a massive fine & be made front up publicly & apologise to all who are about to have their easter f....d due to his selfish actions.

given the economic cost will be measured in the tens of millions being conservative, plus the inconvenience to tens of thousands of people, I would be making him a guest of her majesty for a decade or so plus confiscate all his assets.

Lucky he’s not an African female or his name and face would have been splashed across the front page of the Courier Mail already this morning.

Totally agree but in all likelihood will get hit with a wet feather like most of the others who blatantly thumbed their noses at the law. Case in point the 2 Kenyan women who got 80 hours
of community service this week. Pffft- not sure what useful task they’d be given to perform requiring supervision- may as well do it yourself. They must be laughing all the way to the nearest LV store.

There was no party of twenty five people at his house, there were FIVE people.

Amazed that our all knowing media got it wrong.

The media simply want to stir up dissent and anger, look at the responses above.

25 people at a party narrative was actually put out by QLD health. What’s worse is that they said they were able to quarantine all 25. QLD health really are a bunch of amateurs. Why would you not double check your information before putting out such an inflammatory update? Then on top of that, indicate that they’re so amazing by being able to track down all 25.
In the end, 5 people at the house and 4 of them were housemates.

yes I heard that too after posting my other comment, which I will stand by as a general principle.

doesn’t give you a lot of faith in Qld health after over a year of dealing with this WuHu flu.

Took me and my crew on arrival into Melbourne 4 hours to be processed as an international arrival last week. Despite ALL crew being vaccinated (with vaccines approved by the TGA) we're still required to be tested and handed detention notices to be locked up in hotel rooms for the period of our layover. Even countries with similar covid profiles like Thailand and Singapore don't require the comically over the top protocols that Australia seems to have put on itself.

It was embarrassing to say the least.

Yes it would be good if the WA government would indulge us and provide the risk assessments that lead to these stringent rules. Queensland is a big state, everybody can't suddenly become low or medium risk overnight without good reason and meticulous assessment of the probability of community transmission. They're using a steamroller to flatten a milk carton. It's a small mercy the government is at least consistent, they were doing this before the election.

Did a SYD return out of BNE today, needed to fill in a 6 page border declaration form to be let off the aerobridge to walk next door and get on the next plane back to BNE on a 40 min turnaround, got a nice blue sticker stuck on me to prove I had been assessed by NSW health for the 2 mins I was in the terminal. This crap is worse than the peak of the COVID last year, WTF is going on with these idiots?

Isn’t it ironic.
Some pilots on here winging about how strict the regulations are...and then complaining how they should be above them. Can’t put 2 and 2 together. I wonder if the stable approach criteria applies to them or if they are above that too?

Some pylots can even spell. Others can’t. Keep winging it mate. Whinging is not your strong point.

Hang on, everyone keeps saying NSW is the only Cool State.

All the other states are led by morons, true?

Is NSW not Cool anymore?

All states are not cool now. Lucky we have such good leadership at the federal level to set a good example and get them all on the right track

Like how today Health Minister Hunt announced 500,000 vaccinations have been completed. Great achievement guys, only a shame about this little prediction:

Four million Australians to be vaccinated for coronavirus by end of March - Morrison (January 7th)

The only way this is ending is with an appropriate level of immunisation. The longer that takes the longer this goes on.....
