Coronavirus Australia live update: Victoria records 113 new Covid cases and 12 deaths

Victoria’s hotel quarantine inquiry is sitting in Melbourne again today, with managers from Travelodge, Crown, Sheraton, Rydges and Stamford Plaza to give evidence.

The inquiry has previously heard evidence about a lack of food and concerns from guests about the cleanliness of their rooms.

Yesterday, the inquiry was told Victoria police had pushed back against requests that the force maintain a presence at the hotels.

It also heard the health department was opposed to providing all hotel quarantine staff.
One guard was fired after slipping a note under the door of a guest that said, “Hey hun, add me on Snapchat.”

The inquiry, chaired by former judge Jennifer Coate, was created in response to evidence of hotel quarantine breaches widely blamed for Victoria’s second wave.
