Tonight the Supercars Darwin Triple Crown and the second SuperSprint event look at risk of not happening as the Northern Territory declare the Brisbane, Logan and Ipswich cities as COVID-19 hotspots from 1 minute past midnight tonight.
The NT Govt website says, “If you are intending to travel to the Northern Territory from an identified coronavirus hotspot you are advised to cancel your plans. Likewise if you are a Territorian intending to travel to a hotspot you are advised to cancel your plans.”
“Anyone arriving into the Northern Territory from or through a declared hotspot in the last 14 days must undertake 14 days mandatory supervised quarantine. This will be at your own cost. The cost per person for supervised quarantine is $2500.”
Triple Eight Race Engineering’s Banyo workshop falls within the City of Brisbane boundary, and we understand that other drivers also live in the Queensland capital.
NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner explained regarding the Queensland hotspot declarations, “While the numbers in Brisbane are still low, the Chief Health Officer has considered the data and advised that the risk of spread in these areas is unacceptably high.
“I know this may shock people. I know it will disrupt a lot of lives. And I’m sorry about that.”
WE WILL HAVE MORE AS IT COMES TO HAND.
