Sydney COVID-19: An investigation has been launched into the behaviour of the hotel quarantine limousine driver who contracted coronavirus. The NSW Premier has asked police to investigate whether or not he complied with existing health orders.
“We’ll continue that investigation until we finish with an outcome that we can actually draw some conclusions and take some action if we have to. But we won’t wait for that. Already the police operations centre has started to have a look at the systems and processes around drivers who take flight crew and pilots from the airport to hotel quarantine. What we know is, that the process that we have in place, 188,000 people through that process with minimal disruption in terms of incursions or disease. But that process is robust. It is dynamic. The police every single day have a look at the systems and processes that we use. We talk to health every single day, take heed of the best health advice and, where we can, we will improve those processes” – NSW Police Deputy Commissioner Gary Worboys.
