‘Fantasy land’: Man ordered back into hotel quarantine describes ‘disorganised mess’

A man who completed his 14 day hotel quarantine at the Grand Chancellor hotel in Brisbane and had to re-enter for 3 days says it was an “absolute mess”.

Andy Day was returning back to Australia after working in the Middle East.

He ordered to go back into quarantine for a second stint after health authorities raced to investigate how the mutant UK strain spread through the hotel.

“I had actually left, I had left the hotel on 2 January and I didn’t find out until the 7th or 8th until I saw it on the news,” he told Scott Emerson.

“I anticipated a phone call from the government because it had broken out there they were probably going to call me back in.

“On the 14th, I got the phone call to re-enter.”

He said going back into quarantine for 3 days was an “absolute mess”.

“I was out for 11 days, already in the community … they didn’t ask whatsoever who I had been mixing with.

“It was so disorganised, you couldn’t write a book on it, it was like fantasy land they way they did it.”
