Protocol: Model Nicole Trunfio has reassured fans she’s ‘not sick’ with Covid-19 while in hotel quarantine, after travelling to Australia for a ‘very special reason’
She made it clear she didn’t have Covid-19 and was instead in a hotel because all overseas travellers must do 14 days of quarantine upon arrival in Australia.
She explained: ‘I’m not sick. I flew to Australia a few days ago and the protocol for coming to Australia is – first of all they’re not letting anyone in, period. It has to be a very special reason.’
While Nicole did not specify her ‘special reason’ for flying home, she revealed that her flight over was a packed with 50 passengers.
‘When you get here you get a police escort, you go on a bus, you get taken to a Covid hotel. There’s many of them around the city, that is dedicated towards people coming into the country,’ she said.
‘You get locked in a hotel room, a nice one, for two weeks, 14 days.’
