Fund and offer a COVID-19 tracking wristband as alternative to hotel quarantine
The Government should fund a covid-19 tracking wristband that passengers coming from red list countries can choose to use during compulsory home quarantine instead of hotel quarantine. This wristband would notify authorities if a person violates the rules of isolation period.
Such a wristband could save people from going into expensive hotel quarantine. It is unfair to expect travellers to pay to re-enter their country when they could not have known that they would need to when they left. The mandatory expensive hotel quarantine of people’s own cost, regardless of whether they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, or whether they have tested positive for COVID-19, violates their fundamental right to liberty and right to respect for private and family life.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
