Queensland Police have charged a woman who allegedly pretended to be a doctor and issued hundreds of fake ‘exemption certificates’ for COVID testing, vaccinations and mask wearing.

Detectives on Wednesday executed a search warrant at an address in the Gold Coast suburb of Labrador where a 45-year-old Darling Heights woman was arrested.

She has been charged under Health Practitioner Regulation National Law with five counts of taking a title indicating a person is a health practitioner.

The woman is scheduled to appear at the Southport Magistrates Court on October 28.
