Close contacts should be allowed to quarantine at home. Putting these close contacts at risk of containing the virus in hotel quarantine. This would also make space in hotel quarantine for overseas arrivals. Putting children in confined spaces for weeks on end is in humane. Hotel quarantine is worse than jail with no fresh air, no cleanliness and no space to move. This should be minimized at all costs for Australians. There is technology available to monitor home quarantine that is easily adaptable and could be used. 

My sister was diagnosed with Covid in hotel quarantine. She is 6 months pregnant with a high risk pregnancy and a 4 year old. She is lucky and has no symptoms but QLD health refuse to retest her. After she leaves the hospital they will force her back into quarantine as her daughter is a close contact although has tested negative. Therefore this 4 year old won’t be in a space larger than 4x4 meters for more than 5 weeks. Hotel quarantine provides unclean conditions without fresh air and who knows but my sister could have contracted COVID in hotel quarantine. 

We are asking the Queensland Government to allow this pregnant mother and daughter to quarantine at home after their hospital quarantine. They will be in a home that is on a acre and a half of land is at least 50 meters from other homes. She is much safer quarantining there than in hotel quarantine.
