The COVID-19 Hotel Quarantine Inquiry was established by an Order in Council dated 2 July 2020 to examine matters related to Victoria’s Hotel Quarantine Program.
Specifically, the Inquiry was tasked with looking into decisions by, actions of and communication between government agencies, hotel operators and private contractors involved in the Hotel Quarantine Program, along with associated contractual arrangements, information, guidance and training, and policies, protocols and procedures.

This Final Report is to be read in conjunction with the Inquiry’s Interim Report, which was delivered to the Governor on 6 November 2020.
