A Darwin man given special permission to quarantine at home after returning from overseas was seen out shopping.
The man has been fined $5056 after failing to self-isolate in accordance with his workplace COVID Safety Plan.
He had been in Indonesia and Timor L'Este for work, and returned to Darwin on November 18 and was to self-isolate at home under a management plan approved by the Chief Health Officer.
He was, however, seen at a local shopping centre and also attended a bank, not wearing a face mask at either location.
He did not have an exemption to leave his home.
