Test within 24 hours of arrival, then on day 5 and 13.

That means 14 day quarantine.
Why didn't Port Adelaide and Geelong quarantine for 14 days after playing at Marvel/Geelong on the 20th/21st?

It means for people who test positive on the first test, not the negative.

Those re-occuring tests, for actual arrivals (not prior) are there for the possibility that a first positive test becomes a false positive/recovery by the 5th or 13th.

lol. Seriously?
Yep. You think any player from any top 8 club is ever going to check in anywhere after this? The federal government needs to force Tasmania to allow a covid-free person to play or there will be massive outbreaks in SA and WA from players refusing to check in. Either he plays, or the season is cancelled.

Im not sure that is the logical extrapolation of Hinds situation.

The AFL wants the games played with crowds. Tasmania was one of the few states that could accommodate that so we have to meet their terms or go somewhere else.

If football players werent going to check in because of this i would suggest they probably werent doing it anyway.
If anything, the logic extrapolation is i imagine this would ensure footballers will be ordering delivery take out or drop off groceries from now on

^^ In spades. Probably a dumb decision in the end to go anywhere near a shopping centre. Esp since there were cases in the area.

Should have checked in as "The Bont" in any case.

Tom Browne just said on 7 that Brisbane have the same rules as Tasmania, so he would be unavailable for a hypothetical Brisbane v Essendon semi.
I think the whole team would be unavailable. The whole of Vic is a hotspot so if you've been in Vic you have to do 14 day quarantine on entry into Qld

EDIT - current info from QLD Health for those interested

Do we still not have an absolutely, definite, confirmation of if or how he might be available? Surely Hind has been given a definitive dependent upon the venue.

It notes an exemption there. So they would probably allow Essendon in, which then means by extension also Hind - As the whole state is a hotspot from Queensland's perspective.

Geez you can't kick long to this Dees defence... we are really going to need Hindy to run the ball for that one. At least he'll be fresh
