Woman behind bars after quarantine breach

By | January 7, 2021

A 22-year-old woman, who was charged with failing to comply with a COVID-19 self-quarantine direction, has been refused bail.

The woman arrived at Perth Airport on New Year’s Day from Melbourne through the G2G Pass system, police say.

She was to have self-quarantined for two weeks at an approved location in Perth.

However, she was not at the residence when police conducted a compliance check on Wednesday.

Police alleged the woman had twice breached self-quarantine directions after arriving in Perth.

The Victoria Park woman faced Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday on two counts of failing to comply with a direction.

She was remanded in custody until January 18.
