Police have charged a 30-year-old woman after she allegedly breached her self-quarantine direction after arriving in Western Australia on a flight from Queensland on September 2.

The woman was granted entry into WA and was directed to self-quarantine at a suitable premise for 14- days.

On Monday, September 6, police conducted a routine quarantine check and say the woman was not present at the home.

After conducting inquiries, the woman was subsequently arrested, charged and refused bail.

Police will allege the woman breached her direction on four occasions between Friday, September 3 and Monday, September 6 - which allegedly included attending a pawnbroker in Perth and visiting various family members in the Fremantle area.

The 30-year-old woman from Langford has been charged with four counts of Fail to Comply with a Direction and is due to appear in Fremantle Magistrates Court today.
