Berkshire news Jobless woman coming home from dad's funeral faces £1,750 quarantine bill PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - She is currently in quarantine at a Heathrow Airport hotel
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A woman who lost her job during the coronavirus pandemic says she does not know how she will pay for her quarantine hotel stay after flying back to the UK following her father’s funeral overseas. Lizandra Cardoni travelled to Brazil on December 6 after her father fell ill with coronavirus, intending to return to her home in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, when he got better. Despite recovering from Covid-19 he died in February from complications triggered by the disease and Ms Cardoni stayed on for the funeral. The 40-year-old arrived back in Britain on Friday and now has to quarantine for at least 10 days in the Radisson Blu at Heathrow Airport, for which she is likely to have to pay £1,750. Speaking to the Press Association, she said: “It’s the last thing I wanted after I just lost my dad. “I wasn’t in Brazil on holiday – I went there for a very difficult situation. “All I wanted to do is just go home, and I can’t. "To be very honest, I don’t even know how I’m going to pay."

. She has been living off her redundancy payment and bits of freelance work since, while her husband, a chef, has also seen his income hit by the pandemic. Ms Cardonia added she will find a way to pay if the alternative was “going to prison” but expressed frustration that assistance – in the form of deferred repayment – is only available for those who receive income-related benefits. She said “I think it’s just so unfair because it doesn’t mean, if I’m not on benefit, I don’t still need help." Although Ms Cardoni – who had a negative Covid test before boarding her flight back from Brazil – said the quarantine process was “very organised” at Heathrow, she was puzzled at being allowed to mix with passengers who were not flying from the 33 red list countries. Because there were no direct flights, she changed at Madrid, and she said there was no attempt to separate passengers at the Spanish airport. She said she was “very close” to passengers from non-red list countries in the airport, and one was sitting just one seat away from her on the plane.
“I just thought ‘This just doesn’t make any sense’,” she said. She is now hoping an exception can be made because of her circumstances so she does not have to pay the fee for the hotel. The experience of the last few months has been “very sad” and “quite scary”, she said. “I’m living this pandemic from every aspect,” she added. “I lost my job, a family member, and now I have to quarantine.”
