Resident of Zetland having been contacting me about the use of the Meriton Suites Zetland by Sydney Local Health District as a “Health Accomodation.”

Residents had advised me that last night a number of crew members of the Ruby Princess were transported to the Meriton building under police supervision. They are concerned that as that area is the most dense part of Sydney they felt it was putting them at risk.

Immediately on being contacted by residents I spoke with the Health Minister Brad Hazzard and was extensively briefed by him and the CEO of Sydney Local Health District, Dr Teresa Anderson. They both have given an assurance THERE IS NO RISK TO THE PEOPLE OF ZETLAND.

I have been advised that the Meriton health accomodation is in the same form that health accomodation has been successfully applied to various hotels and establishments around Sydney for those who had arrived from overseas that required isolation.

Patients with mild symptoms that do not require hospitalisation are isolated under the supervision of medical staff from the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and isolation is enforced by NSW Police Force. Patients are monitored and isolated in accordance with strict protocols and cannot leave until there is a medical clearance.

As Dr Anderson pointed out it is a “Human Rights” issue to ensure appropriate accomodation for patients that are being detained on a public health matter that does not require hospitalisation.

The entire building, I am told has been obtained by NSW Health. Supervision is by CCTV and by police 24/7, with very strict protocols being applied, which have been successfully applied all year successfully, without incident.

Dr Anderson will make herself personally available to any resident who requires additional information or who wants any questions answered.

I will keep you updated as information comes to hand.

Do you have a spare/broken smartphone/tablet/laptops?

The Reconnect Project gives mobile phones to people in need, providing them with the means to (re)connect with family, friends and essential services.

There’s an estimated 23 million ‘spare’ mobile phones sitting in drawers, garages and boxes across Australia – and we’re asking Australians to donate them to us. We fix them, securely wipe any data and load them with credit. These phones are distributed to people who need them – be they recently arrived refugees, disadvantaged communities members, those fleeing domestic abuse or someone in a transient housing situation who would otherwise have no means of communication with essential services.

Please go to:
