A 23-year-old woman has been arrested, charged and refused bail after failing to comply with a COVID quarantine direction.

The woman entered Western Australia from Victoria on February 21 and was issued a direction to quarantine for 14 days at an approved premises.

When the woman was required to complete a random G2GNow check-in, the system indicated she was not at her approved self-quarantine location which prompted police to conduct inquiries into her whereabouts.
