    Quarantined guests at Peppers hotel in Adelaide have to do 14 MORE days

    Quarantined guests at Peppers Hotel in Adelaide have to do 14 MORE days in isolation after it became the epicentre of a new outbreak

    • Guests got a note under the doors of their rooms to inform them of the changes 
    • The changes means returned travellers may be in isolation for almost a month  
    • A spokesperson from SA Health said Pepper’s Hotel would be deep cleaned

    Quarantined guests at Pepper’s Hotel in Adelaide will have to do 14 more days in isolation following the state’s new status as a coronavirus hotspot. 

    SA Health authorities believe the outbreak, which hit 20 cases on Monday night, started when a worker at the medi-hotel in the city’s CBD brought the virus home.

    Three employees, including two security guards and one back of house staff member, have tested positive to the respiratory virus so far and spread it.

    Guests received a note under the doors of their rooms to let them know they were being moved to another hotel to undergo a further two weeks of quarantine, regardless of how much time they have already served.

    According to The Guardian, the SA government notice read: ‘Your safety is our highest priority and, as a result, we will be transferring all travellers to another medi-hotel within the next 24 hours. 

    ‘We understand that there are guests whose quarantine period is due to end tomorrow, Tuesday 17 November, however to ensure your safety and to minimise the public health risk, this time will be extended, which may be up to 14 days.’

    The announcement means returned travellers may be in isolation for almost a month, however they will not have to pay for the additional quarantine period themselves.

    Luke Newcombe was due to be released from quarantine on Tuesday.

    When he realised he would have to stay for a further two weeks, he vented his frustrations in a private Facebook group.

    ‘Those of us at Peppers in Adelaide are being moved elsewhere to do a further 14 days isolation at another hotel tomorrow – I was due to get out tomorrow morning and yes my tests were negative,’ he wrote.

    People commented with words of support and encouragement, while others described the situation as ‘inhumane’.

    ‘Really sorry to read this – the whole thing is a nightmare. Just devastating,’ one person wrote.

    ‘That is utterly ridiculous and inhumane, I honestly cant believe what I am reading, Australia has lost the plot,’ another shared.

    ‘FFS, outrageous! I just cannot imagine how you feel, it would be so easy to just lose the plot completely and have a f**king breakdown. Australia is an absolute joke run by clowns.’

    ‘I feel for you, quarantine was one of the hardest things to experience,’ someone else wrote.

    A spokesperson from SA Health said Pepper’s Hotel would be deep cleaned.

    ‘Following a risk assessment of the Peppers Hotel, the Communicable Disease Control Branch has determined the quarantine period of all guests in the hotel needs to be extended by up to 14 days,’ they said.

    ‘We understand the frustration of the guests and we thank them for their assistance as we take every required step to prioritise the health and safety of all South Australians.’  

    Meanwhile, the worrying surge in cases has prompted the state government to reimpose a range of coronavirus restrictions.

    Patients who visited the emergency department of Lyell McEwin Hospital in Elizabeth Vale between 5.30pm on Friday and 8am on Saturday are also required to isolate for two weeks.

    SA Health is contacting everyone who was at the hospital during the listed times.

    They have also identified supermarkets and shopping centres where visitors should ‘monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if symptoms appear’. 

    Pubs, clubs and restaurants will be limited to 100 people per venue from Tuesday, with one person per four square metres and no stand-up drinking.

    Table bookings and home gatherings will be capped at 10 people, with funerals limited to 50 and weddings to 150.

    Gyms and recreation centres will be closed for two weeks and community sport fixtures will be cancelled – but schools will stay open.

    Hair and nail salon workers and tattooists must wear masks, and general mask wearing is strongly advised where social distancing is not possible.
