Alexander Maconochie Centre—COVID-19 quarantine facilities(Question No 436)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 17 September 2021:

(1) How many individual cells and other spaces would be feasible for the quarantine of detainees who test positive for COVID-19 in the Alexander Maconochie Centre

(2) How many of these spaces would be for (a) women and (b) male detainees.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The Management Unit is the accommodation being used for isolation of new admissions and quarantine of positive COVID-19 cases.
