Woman broke lockdown to give massages

A woman has appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court today charged with failing to comply with a COVID-19 public health direction by the Chief Health Officer in March.

Juliana De Morais Palmieri Da Silva, 26, is alleged to have committed the offence by offering to provide massage services at Lutwyche on March 30.

At the time massages were not considered essential services during COVID-19.

She also was charged with knowingly participating in the provision of prostitution by another person.

Ms De Morais Palmieri Da Silva was granted bail and her case was adjourned until September 16.

She was charged with another woman who appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court in June.

Tsai also was charged with knowingly participating in the provision of prostitution by another woman, at Lutwyche on March 30.
