New South Wales, South Australia trial home quarantine arrangements for returning travellers
The Australian and New South Wales governments will launch a home quarantine pilot in Greater Sydney next month. The trial will include New South Wales residents, non-Australian residents and a few Qantas crew. It is based on facial recognition technology. South Australian authorities are currently reviewing a similar system for police to enforce stay-at-home orders. However, there are concerns that the largely untested software could mistakenly identify people from some ethnic groups.
