The Victorian Government welcomes the Interim Report from the COVID-19 Hotel Quarantine Inquiry.
While we wait for the final report that is due to be handed to the Governor by 21 December, the Government is grateful to former Justice Coate for providing her recommendations about options for a future model of quarantine.
As these are complex matters, the Government will give detailed consideration to each of the interim report's 69 recommendations and provide a comprehensive response in due course.
On behalf of the Government and all Victorians, I thank former Justice Coate and her team for the significant amount of work that has gone into the interim report and look forward to receiving the final report.
