Celebrities Skipping Quarantine


Last week Dannii Minogue was given the luxury of skipping mandatory hotel quarantine when she touched down in Brisbane. QLD’s Chief Health officer said this was because she had a “COVID-19 safe plan managed by a third party” in place. Then this week Nicole Kidman and her family were given the same special treatment to self-quarantine in their own home. LiveTribers, is this fair? Does this show special treatment to famous and wealthy people? Should celebrities have to quarantine just like everyone else?

    No, of course this isn't fair, but as everyone knows, money talks. The laws and regulation should apply to everyone, celebrities included

    we are all in this together, just some more than others. One law for all except the special few.

    As long as they stay isolated for the time that is appropiate I do not see any harm. They probaly had to pay a fee to the government

    Normally i would say yes ! But celebrities probably come into contact with more people . So i say no , not through vindictiveness but to protect themselves .

    Of course it;s not fair. Lots of others would welcome the opportunity to skip hotel quarantine which they must pay for themselves and stay in their homes for free.

    Of course it is Fair ! it is only the Media, taking a " I want what they have approach "skipping the detail of Kidman & Minoque having prepared a COVID safe plan, at their own expense, procuring a house and security, again, at their expense to keep us safe, a total Media Beat-Up ! of the Battler v the Wealthy b.s. !

    I don't think it is fair but if they follow the rules and observe strict self quarantine and they should be subject to checks to make sure they follow the rules, then it is ok because they are using their own money to quarantine.

    I don't think it is fair, but to be honest if I had their money I would possibly do the same. They are not costing the taxpayers anything by doing their quarantine in their own home, they still have to follow the quarantine rules and regulations for the state, they still have to be tested. Others who come home have been put in quarantine at taxpayers expense, so if you can afford to quarantine in private residences, honestly, who wouldn't?

    It's probably not fair...but remember the arty class can't dodge infection if they stuff up....we are all equal at catching viruses !!! and spreading them.

    Of course it's not fair! I mean, we ARE dealing with a killer virus. WHY should these people be allowed to risk the lives of anyone else just because they are 'celebrities'? Does that mean they're somehow exempt from infection or spreading the disease to others? I don't think we realise what we're dealing with here. And it's getting too late to be finding out.

    Since when has Dannii Minogue been a celebrity? She's just using her talented sister's reputation to fool some people into thinking that she is. It doesn't matter how important these celebrities think they are there should not be able to avoid following Australian rules and regulations.
