Quarantine and spot compliance checks by ACT police have topped 500 since Friday, with no infringement notices or flagrant breaches detected .
Detective Superintendent Jason Kennedy, who has been seconded to head up the ACT police task force comprising three teams on a 24-hour rotation, extended his thanks to those in isolation for "doing the right thing".
He also urged the public to "be kind" to those who are "fulfilling their moral obligation".
"They [those in self-isolation] are doing the right thing to make sure we all remain safe," he said.
"But we also need to remind everyone that we now have a no-tolerance approach to anyone found not doing the right thing, if those in self-isolation are not where they should be, they can expect action will be taken."
He said police have a discretion and "we will listen to the reason why [a breach has occurred]".
"But if there is an intentional non-compliance with self-isolation, they can expect a fine.
"As a community, we're all in this together."
The police Territory Targeting Teams have developed a system of checking which he said "keeps our people safe and doesn't expose them to the virus".
In the case of those in self-isolation, a spot-check consists of police phoning ahead to advise they are at the location, and asking those in the house to identify themselves and physically produce identification, such as a driver's licence, usually from a window.
A few questions are also asked about their welfare and whether they have left the residence for any reason. That location and spot-check data is then electronically registered on the internal police COVID database.
Everyone self-isolating at home as a mandatory quarantine measure, the most recent being those returning to the ACT since the lockdown of the Victorian border with NSW, are required to be tested for COVID-19.
A similar system operates for those in quarantine, with The Burbury Hotel in Kingston currently accommodating a couple of people still in quarantine in their serviced apartments, well away from the rest of the hotel.
The Burbury has accommodated about 150 people in quarantine since March and the director for hotels for the Doma Group, Patrick Lonergan, described a "different approach" was required for these guests given that once they enter, they won't be leaving for 14 days.
Once in quarantine, guests have access to over 300 free movies, Wi-Fi, and three meals a day delivered to their door for 10 days, with supermarket-type meal packs provided on the other four days. Mr Lonergan would not disclose how much the hotel was charging its quarantine guests.
The hotel's customary occupancy rates had suffered on the back of the coronavirus travel restrictions so the approach from the ACT government to provide the service, most of whom so far have been guests arriving on international flights from India, was a welcome one.
"Would we have sold that many apartments for 14 days without them [the people in quarantine]? The answer's probably no," he said.
"It was a really good shot in the arm financially for us; it allowed us to bring more people back to work."
He said that due to the coronavirus April had been "a real low point" on their hotel occupancy, dropping down to between 10 to 20 per cent, compared with the usual 80 to 85 per cent.
