People entering Queensland are being forced into expensive hotel quarantine even though Queensland residents who are suspected of having COVID19 can self-isolate at home.  Queensland Health is operating under double standards.

The Queensland government's demand that incoming passengers go into a state mandated facility has resulted in a cap being placed on arrivals. The government claims that a cap is needed to reduce the strain on hotel quarantine. As a result, travel exemptions are not being granted and Queenslanders cannot be reunited with their immediate family members.

The mental health of Queenslanders is being put at risk due to the Government’s  policy of “keeping them out”.  

Queensland Health is responsible for the health of all Queenslanders.  Allowing the family members of Queenslanders to quarantine safely at home would reduce the load on hotel quarantine which is needed for those who cannot quarantine anywhere else.  The Queensland government needs to adopt long term strategies to deal with the health implications of the virus.
