They being transferred by bus to the Pullman Albert Park hotel.
The first guest moved out of the hotel placed a garbage bag on their head as they were escorted to a bus by a quarantine worker.
Today reporter Christine Ahern says all residents at the hotel will be moved due to water damage at the hot hotel on Flinders Lane.
“There was a sprinkler system which was activated without a fire occurring on Saturday, resulting to water damage to four of the eight floors of the hotel,” she told Ross and Russel.
“As a result of that water damage will today be transported … which will be a big logistical effort given this is a hot hotel.”
