So let me get this straight. It's unsafe for the Canberra Raiders to spend a couple of hours napping in a Brisbane hotel.
But it's perfectly OK for 20,000 people to be crammed together like sardines trying to get into Suncorp Stadium.
And then even safer to simply open the gates and let everyone flood in at once.
Welcome to another baffling chapter in the Annastacia Palaszczuk Queensland government's relationship with Canberra during the coronavirus pandemic. Or Palashambles for short.
Let's hope for the ACT's sake there's no serious repercussions as a result.
Especially with some Raiders fans making the journey north to watch the NRL preliminary final at the stadium on Friday night.
It would be sadly ironic if Queensland accidentally ended Canberra's three-month run without a single case of the COVID-19 virus after a week of more pandemic posturing from the banana benders.
Palaszczuk labelled the ACT a coronavirus hotspot back at the start of August despite there being no active cases in Canberra at the time.
Apparently it was the capital's fault Queensland's border security let a Sydneysider enter the state having come via Canberra.
That decision to ban Canberrans was only reversed three weeks ago.
Now more Sunshine State incompetence could come back to bite us.
MORE RAIDERS NEWS
For those that didn't see the scenes, it unfolded around kick-off in the Raiders-Melbourne Storm grand final qualifier.
As the opening whistle approached, Suncorp was strangely empty.
But as the game got underway thousands of fans streamed through the gates with many of them missing the Storm's opening try - if not opening two.
Such was the stuff up - caused by a "national outage" in the ticketing system - the stadium issued a release before the end of the game.
In it they proudly boasted: "We had everyone in within seven-eight minutes after kick-off."
Yep, 20,000 people entering within seven to eight minutes. That's 2857 people every minute.
Now, I'm no biosecurity expert, but that doesn't equate to social distancing. Social media is my witness.
All this came just two days after the Raiders thought they were flying north early Friday morning to spend a couple of hours at the Pullman Hotel in King George Square.
That was until they finally got a reply from the Queensland government - a month after they started asking for approval for the afternoon visit.
It would allow the players to have a nap, watch TV and just relax in a hotel room for a few hours in the lead-up to the grand final qualifier against the Storm.
The Raiders had already been in touch with the hotel, with the NRL ticking off the logistics that would have seen them have an entire floor to themselves - with no access to the general public.
But after weeks of deliberating - aka doing nothing - the Queensland government finally came back to the Green Machine on Wednesday at 3pm.
They wanted a raft of additional measures - including having every hotel staff member tested for COVID-19 - all done by the close of business that day.
It's unclear whether the Palashambles' government slipped in a request to organise the biosecurity for the prelim final as well. Maybe they should have. It would've been safer for everyone.
