Fremantle have decided to stand down assistant coach Josh Carr for the time-being after he was issued with three summons for alleged COVID protocol breaches.
The Dockers released a statement on Friday revealing police had visited Carr's home where he was supposed to be isolating for 14 days, to which he was not present on their inspection.
Carr was placed into a mandatory quarantine period after arriving in Perth from the Gold Coast on Sunday.
“We appreciate and understand the pressures that quarantine measures can place on individuals, however there is no excuse,” club CEO Simon Garlick said, via the Dockers' statement.
“And while Josh was very apologetic and remorseful, we are frustrated and disappointed by his actions and concerned about the negative impact they could have on the very positive relationships we’ve maintained with WA police, the State Government and the AFL throughout the course of the pandemic.”
Fremantle have revealed they have decided to stand down Carr from his coaching duties as they work with the AFL integrity unit.
The Dockers also revealed that youngster Brandon Walker has been issued with an infringement notice for breaching his strict COVID guidelines.
It is understood that Walker inadvertently breached police-issued direction as he took his dog for a short walk from his home.
The AFL have been made aware of both instances.
