Jasmine received a special exemption from Queensland Health to travel from Covid-stricken Sydney to the Sunshine State to care for her grandmother. 

‘This is going on with families right around the country,’ Karl said. ‘It’s not easy.’ 

The Nine presenter added that getting the exemption had been a lengthy process for Jasmine, but praised the state’s health department as ‘fantastic’.
