A young Australian woman named Hayley Hodgson was recently detained in the Howard Springs quarantine camp despite testing negative for the virus. The 26-year-old claims that this whole incident came as a result of her co-worker testing positive. Authorities appeared to have located her through her license plate after performing some sort of contact tracing. She did not receive a call from anyone after authorities identified her. Two investigators showed up at her front door and began to ask her a series of questions. That moment is when everything went downhill for Hayley.
The investigators asked Hayley if she had gotten a virus test since she was exposed to a person with the virus. She said that she had but later confessed that she lied and has not had a test. The investigators told her not to worry and that someone would come to her house and perform a test. The testing people never arrived, but uniformed police officers did. They blocked her driveway in so she was unable to leave then delivered some bad news. Hayley was informed that she was going away to the quarantine camp. This was not up for negotiation. The only two choices she was given were to have the police take her in the back of their squad/car paddywagon which would result in a fine of $5,000 for her. Or she could wait for the “virus cab” to come get her which would result in no fine. Either way, she was going to Howard Springs.
Hayley asked a great question while all of this was happening. She observed that other people who have either been exposed to the virus or those who have actually contracted it were simply allowed to stay home and self-isolate. So the question was, why wasn’t she allowed to do the same? No answer to this question was given immediately, but she was able to find out later that this may have been a punitive action. Lying to the private investigators about her virus test may have been enough provocation for them to lock her up in the “quarantine facility” that the local Government claim is not a detention facility. If it isn’t a place of detention, then placing someone there against their will for a set period of time sure makes it seem like one.
