View Full Version : Bloody swine flu!

I'm a non-recontracting JET and I just found out I'll have to spend 7 days in home quarantine when I return to Australia at the end of next month before I can see my family and friends, not to mention my fiancé. Bloody swine flu!

Does anyone know anymore about this? My future aunt-in-law works at the swine flu hotline in Australia and just sent me a quick message on Facebook to let me know. I'm still waiting to hear more from her.

False alarm.

Turns out this aunt cried wolf and tends to make a big deal of things a lot. On the smarttraveller.gov.au website it says Australians are still being temperature scanned when they arrive in the country and are only quarantined if they are displaying swine flu symptoms.

Me too! I'm a fellow Aussie returned home in August!
