Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce was warned before asking questions. Time that may have been in close contact, but later cleared. “David Hefernan was told to drive out of Canberra and quarantine for 14 days, not just quarantine and test,” Klenel said. Barnaby Joyce was told that there was not enough distance to contact for quarantine and testing. “If Hefernan, who understands he talked to Adam Marshall for 20 minutes on Tuesday night, tested positive, they (Pitt and Mrs. Joyce) would test.”

Kuomintang leader Barnaby Joyce was warned before the question time that he might have been in close contact, but was later cleared.

“David Heffernan was told to drive out of Canberra and quarantine for 14 days, rather than just quarantining and testing,” Clennell said.

“Keith Pitt and Barnaby Joyce were told they weren’t far enough to contact for isolation and testing.

“If Hefernan, who I understand I talked to Adam Marshall for 20 minutes on Tuesday night, tested positive, they (Pitt and Joyce) need to test.”
