Human Nature member Toby Allen has been forced to isolate in a Brisbane hotel amid the COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney.
He travelled alone from Sydney to Brisbane on a Virgin flight where he came into close proximity with a passenger who may have been exposed to the virus.
The band issued a statement on their Instagram on Friday to announce that the other members, who travelled separately, will perform the rest of their Christmas shows this weekend without him.
Queensland Health has instructed all passengers who boarded Virgin flight 925 to self-isolate for 14 days.
“As a result, Toby is now in Hotel isolation in Brisbane and under the supervision of Queensland Health authorities until further notice,” the statement read.
Bandmates Andrew Tierney, Mike Tierney and Phil Burton are not required to quarantine or go for testing as they travelled separately on Thursday evening.
The statement also said that if Toby becomes a case, they will then be required to quarantine.
Human Nature are scheduled to perform in Brisbane on Friday, The Gold Coast on Saturday and in Canberra on Monday and Tuesday.
