The army hauled thirty-eight indigenous Australians in the Northern Territory into quarantine camps.
The army has started removing the residents using force and transported them to Howard Springs quarantine camp located in Darwin because nine positive cases were found. This is the result of the hard lockdowns issued in this country.

Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner stated that “Residents of Binjari and Rockhole no longer have the five reasons to leave their homes.” The five reasons to avoid lockdown are buying food and supplies, exercising for up to two hours, care or caregiving, work, and education.
“They can only leave for medical treatment, in an emergency, or as required by law.” says Gunner; he continues that “It’s highly likely that more residents will be transferred to Howard Springs today, either as positive cases or close contacts,” adding “We have already identified 38 close contacts from Binjari, but that number will go up. Those 38 are being transferred now.”
Gunner stated that he had talked to the Prime Minister, and they are grateful for the support of 20ADF personnel and army trucks to aid the transfer of positive cases and close contacts. “We are doing an assessment today of what extra resources we might need from the Feds, and the Prime Minister is ready to help further – I thank him for that.” He added.

There are two mandatory quarantine facilities in the Northern Territory, the Center for National Resilience in Howard Springs, Darwin, and the Alice Springs Quarantine facility, Alice Springs.
The person in quarantine must:
- stay in the person’s allocated room, including on any veranda space allocated to the room, unless permitted by an authorised officer; and
- when not in their room, or on their veranda, residents must take all reasonable measures to stay at least 1.5 metres away from any other person in the quarantine facility, except for the person’s spouse, de facto partner, child or parent; and
- wear a face mask when outside their room unless an authorised officer permits the person to remove the face mask; and
- comply with any directions given by an authorised officer to avoid people congregating in a quarantine zone; and
- must not leave the quarantine zone in which the person’s allocated room is located unless the person is escorted by an authorised officer, except in an emergency.
Chief Health Officer Direction 52 of 2021 explained what a person in quarantine must do at the Center for National Resilience and at Alice Spring Quarantine Facility. If a person doesn’t follow the Direction, the police will issue an infringement notice with a financial penalty.
