Dannii Minogue allowed to skip hotel quarantine

Dannii Minogue allowed to skip hotel quarantine

Danny Minogue has returned to Australia after travelling from the United States, however she will not be placed under the government’s strict mandatory 14-day hotel stay.

The pop star and her son have been granted an exemption by the Queensland government on medical grounds.

Instead of being forced to remain in the confines of a hotel, the two will spend 14 days at their Gold Coast private residence.

Minogue returned from the COVID-19 hotspot the United States over the weekend and headed straight to her Gold Coast property.

Minogue is still under the same strict hotel quarantine measures in her home, as no one is allowed to come and go from the property.

Unlike many other Australians who are returning from overseas, Minogue will not foot the mandatory $2800 bill for hotel accommodation each returning adult has to pay under current Queensland quarantine laws.

Millions of dollars has gone towards paying for thousands of travellers who have returned to Australia to quarantine in hotels since March.

On Monday night; the Queensland government said they could not comment on Minogue’s case.

“While we cannot comment on individuals, Queensland Health has strong arrangements in place whether people are quarantining inside or outside hotels,’’ a spokesperson told 7NEWS.
