There are some horrible rumours going around down here that they got clearance and arrived before the self isolation rule and received 2 negative tests (one in the USA and one in aus) and that the one person who made the complaints has it in for this couple.
What is just as concerning is the amount of people who have flocked down here from melb today. The beach car parks the all the way down are full. Restaurants and cafes still have tables set up for people to sit!
I'd be reporting the restaurants and cafes. I think there's now a hotline, but can't remember where I saw it.
The complaints about the couple are 1) that they ignored common sense, and didn't self isolate because they didn't have to, were home 1.5 days before the deadline. That's just stupid and selfish.
And 2), they eventually tested positive and THEN went shopping and to the golf course. That's what the newspaper report says, anyway.
My neighbour came back from New York on Sunday 14th, and with all of the advice and knowledge that so many of our cases were coming from the USA, decided many days before she got back, that she would be self-isolating, and still is.
So there would have been plenty information around for them to decide what the right thing was to do in the first place. I could understand a desperate trip to the supermarket by one of them, I cannot comprehend going to a crowded 21st.
If there's evidence they went out after testing positive hopefully they'll be fined.
