Queensland cancer sufferer told to fly via Sydney to get home
A Queensland cancer sufferer who was barred from returning home from NSW has finally been given permission to cross the border.
Sharen Gordon, who needs regular treatment, has been forced to stay for three weeks in a motel 12 minutes drive from the border.
Scott Emerson reported this afternoon that Sharen, who is in Chinderah, will have to fly via Sydney, through to Brisbane.
“The government is forcing Sharen to travel to Ballina Airport, fly own to Sydney before flying back into Queensland and go into home quarantine.
“Potentially she could drive into Queensland in 10-15 minutes.”
He said she will have to pay to get her car towed as well as the cost of hotel quarantine.
“It feels like the government has granted her an exemption just to try and look like they’ve done something.”

For those who have been following her story on @NewsTalk4BC Breakfast, Sharen Gordon has an exemption to enter Qld from her Chinderah Motel on Saturday among the 50. BUT – Qld Health told her she had to go to the hot spot of Sydney and fly in. She is not allowed in over land. 🤔
