The Masked Singer judge Jackie O Henderson is facing a month of quarantine following an outbreak of COVID-19 on the set of the hit Network 10 show.
Henderson, alongside the entire crew of The Masked Singer, must isolate in Melbourne for two weeks. However, Henderson was due to fly home to Sydney earlier this week before the outbreak occurred.
Once her two-week quarantine in Melbourne is over, Henderson must quarantine for a further two weeks upon arrival in Sydney.
“It’s fucked. I just want to see my baby girl,” Henderson said on her KIIS FM breakfast show.
“I can’t get out of Melbourne. I am going to be stuck here for the rest of my life. I have to do 14 days quarantine in my room here and then do another 14 days when I get to Sydney. It is ridiculous.”
While Henderson said she doesn’t want preferential treatment, she questioned the strict quarantine rules.
“It is a cluster. I can understand because they do say with quarantining you do need that 10 days for it to show up right because sometimes symptoms don’t show up after 10 days. So I am okay with that, I don’t mind doing the quarantine, it just seems weird to do a double quarantine though because at the end of this quarantine I am going to be tested and obviously if I am negative then I definitely don’t have it.”
Henderson said she doesn’t mind being in quarantine but is upset about needing to do it twice.
“I know this is red tape that I won’t be able to cut through it is just that each state is like its own country.”
