ADF officer and hotel guest fined $1,000 for breaching Covid rules

An ADF member has been issued a PIN, after entertaining a guest while in hotel quarantine in Sydney.

The 26-year-old had recently returned from overseas deployment, and was in quarantine at a hotel along Hickson Road.

ADF officers, who were conducting security for the hotel, overhead a woman’s voice in the man’s room around 12.45am.


After inquiries, the woman was escorted from the hotel’s quarantine area and police were contacted.

The 53-year-old woman is believed to have been a guest staying at the hotel.

Police were called in to investigate, before issuing both the man and woman with a PIN for $1,000.

The woman was made to check out immediately. She will be made to get a COVID test, and then self isolate at her Hornsby home.

The man remains in quarantine, with investigations continuing.
