Rockingham mum and daughter among quarantine breaches

Western Australia's border restrictions might be easing, but the WA Police Force continue to enforce quarantine requirements.

On Tuesday, officers from the Self Quarantine Assurance Team attended a home in Rockingham where a 37-year-old woman and her four-year-old daughter were directed to self-quarantine for 14 days. The pair had arrived on an interstate flight on Monday morning.

It will be alleged that the mother and daughter were not at the home and had taken a walk to a park.

The woman will be infringed for Failure to Comply With a Direction and they are now required to complete their quarantine period at a secure self-quarantine hotel.

That same day officers from the Self Quarantine Assurance Team also attended a motel in Rivervale and conducted a self-quarantine check on a 50-year-old woman who had returned to Western Australia on Wednesday, 18 November 2020 after travelling interstate.

It will be alleged that the woman was not present and had left the motel in her vehicle to purchase fast food. It was further established that the woman had left the motel on three other occasions to purchase fast food (totalling four incidents across three days).

The woman has been summonsed with four counts of Fail to Comply With a Direction and will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on December 22.

She is required to complete her quarantine period at a secure self-quarantine hotel.
