New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has revealed she did not self-isolate while awaiting coronavirus test results and went about her daily activities as normal. “Fortunately, the test came back in a couple of hours and it was negative,” she confirmed this morning. “I did act in those two hours as though it was normal, I didn’t take any extra precautions apart from the normal social distancing I always do, and anyone who comes to my office, has anything to do with me, knows how fussy I am with all of that. “So they’re the facts, and I’ll let others judge that.” The state’s health advice strictly advises anyone who receives a COVID test to isolate until they receive their results.Sky News Australia YouTube Channel
