It’s an isolated life for Prime Minister Scott Morrison who will enter the fourth day of a mandatory two-week quarantine period on Sunday after returning home from an « essential » trip to Japan
News Corp’s Sunday Telegraph got a rare glimpse into the Prime Minister’s day-to-day activities as he secludes himself amid tight security at the Lodge with his photographer Adam Taylor
Following the strictest protocols approved by the Commonwealth Health Departments and ACT, in addition to the Australian Federal Police, Mr. Morrison is even limited in his movements in the official residence which has been divided into « red », « yellow » and « drop » zones.
But despite being a virtual prisoner in his home away from home, Mr. Morrison said he’s doing fine
“Last night we had APEC until 2:30 am There are announcements and briefings and a lot of paperwork I live almost behind four walls with a guard and a lot of my movements are tightly controlled so it’s not so different
« But of course I can’t see the children The family, even though we talk several times a day »
M Morrison, who underwent the first of two mandatory COVID tests on Saturday, said the little downtime he spent on the exercise bike or « working on » all streaming services
« There’s a bike here I’m just going for 30 minutes I’m trying not to go too far, even though my brother Allan is a paramedic, » he joked.
« I also found a Gravitrax set in my daughter’s room and I made it It’s a puzzle I find it distressing
Health and safety protocols implied that Mr. Morrison and his staff were dropped off at the main entrance of the Lodge with their luggage before entering the « red zone »
Only the PM and Taylor are allowed in the red zone, which includes the bedrooms, living room and « communication room » where virtual summits, broadcast and parliamentary business take place.
The area has been stocked with cleaning supplies, fresh linens, clean towels, and standard toiletries for use during quarantine
Other staff are allowed in the « yellow zone », which covers the main kitchen and laundry room, with the drop-off area limited to the drop-off and collection of essential items and documents.
Even the AFP guarding the premises is not allowed to enter the red or yellow areas, except in the event of a security problem
According to the protocols, M Morrison is to remain « out of the dining room » until the drop-off – usually food or documents – takes place with the event reported in advance via a WhatsApp message.
Those handling laundry and dishes should wear a face shield, shield and gloves with protective equipment discarded in the contaminated waste disposal units provided
Prepared meals, snacks and drinks have been placed in a kitchenette in the upstairs living room, which also has basic cooking appliances, as well as a coffee machine.
For laundry, protocols state that personal items should be placed in a water soluble strip bag before being transported to the drop area
At the end of the 14-day quarantine, M Morrison – who will be joined by another member of staff next week – will undergo another COVID test at the Lodge before being free to leave
However, the quarantine period will be « reset » to « day zero » in the event of a positive test by a quarantined person.
Upon landing in Canberra, M Morrison was given a mask before being taken directly to the Lodge with his staff
