Shadow Finance Minister Katy Gallagher’s daughter tests positive for COVID-19 | #socialmedia | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker


Shadow Finance Minister Katy Gallagher has revealed her daughter has tested positive to COVID-19 in the ACT.

Senator Gallagher shared the news on social media saying she was informed her daughter Evie was among 17 positive cases reported earlier on Tuesday.

“This morning we were advised that my gorgeous daughter Evie has tested positive for COVID-19,” she said.

“She is at home with us but is feeling pretty unwell and understandably worried about what this means for her and for the rest of her family.”

The Labor senator, and former chief minister of the ACT, said she and other family members had returned negative test results.

“Our household remains in strict quarantine until ACT Health advises us that we don’t need to isolate anymore,” she said.

“I am lucky as I am fully vaccinated.”

Senator Gallagher chairs the Senate’s COVID-19 Committee, which has been interrogating the federal government’s response to the pandemic and has been highly critical of Australia’s slow vaccination program and use of hotels for quarantining returning overseas travellers.

“My focus right now is on my little girl and getting her through this — but these events bring a sharp personal focus to the consequences of our government’s failure to ensure a prompt, efficient national rollout of vaccines,” she told her followers on Tuesday night.

Senator Gallagher was inside Parliament House on Thursday of last week before Canberra entered its first week of lockdown.

There are 45 active cases in the ACT and dozens of exposure sites.

Earlier on Tuesday Prime Minister Scott Morrison said no decision had been made on whether Federal Parliament would resume for its scheduled fortnight of sittings next Monday.

“A quorum of members of Parliament actually remain here in Canberra,” he said.

“They’ve been here during the lockdown. So there won’t be an issue in terms of there being enough members to be able to sit in the Parliament next week if that’s indeed what we progress with.”

The territory’s Chief Minister, Andrew Barr, has previously said it is his preference that Parliament does not go ahead.
