Man accused of breaching quarantine visited Northbridge venue after travelling to WA from SA

A 42-year-old man is due in court today on allegations he visited a Northbridge venue last night while he was supposed to be in self-quarantine after travelling to WA from South Australia.

According to police, the man arrived in Perth on a flight from SA on November 16 after being granted approval to travel to enter the State for work purposes.

He was allegedly told to self-quarantine for 14 days at a residence in Cannington, but “due to unplanned maintenance” he was allowed to relocate to “suitable accommodation” in Northbridge yesterday.

Hours later, police say a concerned member of the public contacted them to report that a man at a licensed venue on Lake Street was claiming he was meant to be in self-quarantine.

“Police attended the scene and located the man,” police say. “Upon establishing his identity, and confirming his self-quarantine status, he was arrested and taken to the Perth Watch House.”

The man, who would have finished his self-quarantining period in two days, was refused bail and is due to appear in Northbridge Magistrate’s Court today.
