Victorian escorted into quarantine

A 51-year-old Victorian woman has been escorted by Queensland Police into hotel quarantine after they say she lied about her reasons for travelling to the northern state.

A Queensland Police strikeforce has been set up review border declarations to ensure accurate and reliable information has been provided. Officers from the strikeforce attended the woman’s Gympie address this morning.

They spoke to the woman and say further investigations revealed that her purpose of travel was untrue.

The woman had earlier declared that she had travelled from Victoria for essential work purposes.

Investigations into the matter are continuing.
