EMMA Hutson, the young Redland Bay mother who contracted COVID-19 has been discharged from hospital.
Ms Hutson was discharged last night from Redland Hosptial after contracting coronavirus and spending four nights in quarantine.
"I have been released from hospital after two sequential negative swabs," she said.
However, Ms Hutson has been given strict instructions from health officials and won't get to hold her 16-month-old son just yet.
"I have to stay in my own room and use my own bathroom, blocked away from the rest of my household, for I could still be a carrier, but I still can't have my baby boy in my arms and cuddle the ones I love the most just yet," she said.
She will stay in isolation until next week.
Ms Hutson said the medical staff at Redland Bay had "legendary courage".
"I appreciate my health and the health care of Australia that is free and available to us all. The relentless work, positivity and kindness of the nurses at Redland Hospital, who are going into uncharted territory, serving me as a patient, and then having to expose themselves and their families to the unknown," she said.
Remaining positive throughout her illness and isolation, Ms Hutson said she made a special friend in her COVID-19 ward.
"I made a a new friend, no doubt for life. We connected through positive experiences," she said.
She thanked her friends and family for their support including people who have followed her journey on social media, giving her motivation throughout her time in isolation.
