Home quarantine would be better than being in a hotel that’s set on fire! On day 10 this happened

What more could go wrong?

Well, its now two and a bit full business days since Dom P’s (updated) media release stating the 14 day Flight Crew iso period would be reduced to 72 hours.

The current Public Health Orders commenced just over an hour prior to his media release. It contained all the other changes highlighted in the media release but, as best as I can tell, there is no relief for Flight Crew isolation periods within.

I will happily stand corrected if I am misreading the Order or if there is other information in the public realm I am not aware of.

Given how quickly Public Health Order changes have been made in the past, perhaps its time to get back on Twitter and/or keep writing to the local member to keep Dom P to his word.

Correct - still 14 days for crew and 72 hours for pax - disgraceful the power these “Health Departments” wield. Absolutely zero justification (I'd love to know if they actually THINK there is a valid reason for the discrepancy between pax and crew!) provided for what is an obviously ridiculous rule. Anyone who can, please exert pressure on the powers that be…

Takes a while to update these things… particularly when they’ve changed.

Everything I’ve read publicly says ‘72 hours’ for aircrew so that’s what I’m going with at the moment. If they want to take me to court to fight it I’ve plenty of screen shots of government websites that indicate the current requirements.

Yup...with little effort you can find numerous examples on total contradictions of requirements for isolation/quarantine/anything else between federal government sites like smart traveller and each states COVID websites and (at least as of yesterday) very little guidance on what these 72 hour isolations require of us, be it crew or pax.

Sure makes following the rules difficult when what we are given makes it next to impossible to follow.

The difficulty is, is I've been told you are presented with the Health Order - puts you in a bad position if you then break that...

When the will is there, the NSW Government has been quite quick in amending Public Health Orders after a decision is taken. I suggest that the will is not there for this particular change, hence the contention that further lobbying from interested parties may be needed.

Why are you people so compliant? It's not enforced unless your under police quarantine.

You’re a bit in the spotlight if you have to fly out to your home state after your “non-compliant” 72 hours, should you choose to opt for that timeframe. The company wouldn’t risk it either…

Because for most of us, failure to adhere to Government restrictions would be grounds for disciplinary action from our employers...
