From another forum I am on:

This new UK strain is causing us problems.

First we had the quarantine guard in Perth, Western Australia, who caught it.
Now we have a quarantine guard in Melbourne, Victoria, who has caught it.

A woman in quarantine also caught it while in quarantine in Melbourne. A family of 5 arrived with the UK variant, and the woman remembers opening her hotel door (probably to pick up her meal) at the same time as they opened their hotel door. The woman now has the exact same genomic variant as the family have.

The Premier of NSW (who take the majority of incoming returned travellers) wants all quarantine workers vaccinated first. I totally understand her reasoning. Cover the people who work our weakest point.

Hotel quarantine worker tests positive for COVID-19 in Victoria, transmission between rooms being investigated - ABC News

I've seen similar reports...

MUCH SHORTER EXPOSURE— #B117 is so infectious—very short exposure can lead to #COVID19. Many infected via just a few minutes inside a store. 

Flag of Canada
 local health dept has shortened the exposure time to as little as ***1 second if not wearing face masks**.
