Staff from contractor Spotless have been pulled from floor managing and customer service duties at Covid-19 quarantine hotels in Victoria, amid concerns about infections among staff working in the hotels.
Last week, the Saturday Paper reported cases of Covid-19 among staff at two quarantine hotels since the Victorian Department of Justice took over managing hotel quarantine at the beginning of August.
