Fremantle assistant coach Josh Carr has been charged with breaching the WA Government’s Quarantine Directions Orders.
Carr, who returned to Perth from the Gold Coast with the team on Sunday night after playing Sydney at Metricon Stadium that afternoon, commenced his 14-day home quarantine period at 12.01am on Monday.
Carr has been issued with a summons for three alleged breaches stemming from a police visit to his residence on Wednesday, which established that he was not at home. 
Fremantle CEO Simon Garlick said players and staff who travelled to the Gold Coast for the game had been given multiple reminders about adhering to the directions orders, which, in part, stipulate that quarantined players and staff can only leave home to travel to and from the Club to train.
“We appreciate and understand the pressures that quarantine measures can place on individuals, however there is no excuse,” Garlick said. 
“And while Josh was very apologetic and remorseful, we are frustrated and disappointed by his actions and concerned about the negative impact they could have on the very positive relationships we’ve maintained with WA police, the State Government and the AFL throughout the course of the pandemic.”
Carr must now complete the rest of his quarantine at home with no exemptions to attend training or game day, including this Sunday’s game against Richmond and the round 21 fixture against Brisbane. 
In addition, the Club will place Carr on stand down from his coaching duties while the Club works with the AFL integrity department to determine any further action.
"Josh is a valued member of our coaching structure and the Club is committed to supporting Josh and his family through this time," Garlick said.
Now that the matter is before the courts, the Club will not make any further comment on the alleged breaches.
In addition to Carr’s breach, Fremantle first-year player Brandon Walker advised Club officials on Tuesday that he had breached the orders by walking his dog a short distance from his home earlier that same day.
The Club then contacted police, who subsequently interviewed the 18-year-old on Wednesday, and he will be issued with an infringement notice for a single breach of the police-issued directions orders.
Garlick said Walker had inadvertently breached the directions orders.
“He is a young player, and while Brandon’s breach was accidental, it is still disappointing and unacceptable,” Garlick said.
“We’ve given Brandon an official warning, and he is well aware of the seriousness of the breach.”
The Club has advised the AFL about both breaches.
