NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has pleaded with Tasmanian officials to let a Sydney woman into the state to see her dying mother who has just 48 hours to live.

Mercedes Maguire, 48, was told she must quarantine for 14 days before seeing her mother Teresa Florez, 90, in Hobart after officials refused a request for a travel exemption.

Her mother is in the final stages of her battle with dementia and can no longer eat or drink, but health officials fear Ms Maguire is a high-risk for Covid transmission because she is travelling from Sydney.

Planned Perrottethood: how does the NSW premier appeal to women?

  Planned Perrottethood: how does the NSW premier appeal to women? Dominic Perrottet has made headway on some issues that will appeal to female voters, but his stance on abortion and same-sex marriage will not.Since taking over from Gladys Berejiklian, Perrottet has been quick to address the concerns of women and working parents, who are a key demographic for the NSW Liberals. He moved forward the return-to-school date, has increased domestic violence funding, and plans a cabinet reshuffle to address the party’s gender gap.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet points at the Sydney Harbour Bridge as he delivers stunning broadside at Annastacia Palaszczuk and Dan Andrews: 'We're rejoining the world' (and you're NOT). Dominic Perrottet announced major changes to Covid restrictions on Friday. Victoria on Friday revealed NSW residents from 'red zones' would be allowed to cross into the state without quarantining but made no changes to its international border. Queensland continues to lock out residents from NSW and Victoria and is showing no urgency to open its borders to the rest of the world.

Stepfather Jake Gliddon and Cleo's mother Ellie Smith begged whoever had Cleo, or knew where she was, to bring her home. The parents said the past 10 days have felt like an eternity but they are trying to 'stay positive' for the sake of their other child. The couple still can't believe how someone could have snuck into their tent and taken their little girl, saying it makes then 'feel sick'. 'We hate that they are allowed to exist especially when their intent is obviously not about what it should be,' she wrote.

'When we were told she was in palliative care last Thursday we started making plans to get down there - but that's when we hit a brick wall,' she said.

'We applied for an exemption on compassionate grounds but within two days we received a response that said 'unsuccessful' in capital letters.'

Ms Maguire said her family on the mainland made a second application to enter Tasmania on Monday, but that health officials now wanted to verify the extent of her mother's illness through their own doctor.

'The thing that's the biggest torment is we want to be by her side when she passes away,' she said.

'We don't want to be in a hotel room down the road getting a phone call at 3am in the morning saying she's died.'

A woman flying from Pueblo, Colo., to visit her dying mother one last time in Minnesota was removed from the plane over a ticketing issue. Carrol Amrich was sitting on a United Airlines flight, waiting for the plane to take off when she says a flight attendant approached her and told her she had to leave. “You took away from her that she might have been able to see her mother alive. If I’d have been at that gate, I would have done everything in my power to get her back on that plane.” United Airlines has reportedly referred questions regarding the incident to Traveler Help Desk, and offered its condolences to Amrich

Every other minute, a woman or girl dies as a result of pregnancy complications or childbirth. Why has the global decline in maternal mortality stalled? But moving the needle much further requires greater political will and more money, says Anneka Knutsson, chief of sexual and reproductive health at the UN population fund (UNFPA). “Any intervention that brings women to a health centre to have antenatal care, informs women of the importance of seeking care, or decreases the number of home births done alone, will have a great impact,” she says.

The NSW premier has intervened in her case and called for Tasmanian authorities to show compassion in her family's 'time of need'.

'While border restrictions are a matter for individual states this is surely a case where an exemption could be considered on compassionate grounds,' he said.

'I have contacted the Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein to see if the Tasmanian government could have a further look at this case.'

Even if officials approve the second application, Ms Maguire said the best she could hope for were short approved visits from hotel quarantine.

'It doesn't make sense - it's just illogical,' she said. 'Aren't we still creating a risk by visiting her?'

Ms Maguire's three siblings in Tasmania have been cleared to see their mother in her final days as they are all double vaccinated against Covid-19.

The Sydney woman said the decision didn't make sense given she is double-dosed too.

'We want to be there when she passes. She knows they [her siblings in Tasmania] are there and it breaks my heart to know that they're we're not there,' she told Sunrise.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Tasmania's Department of Health for comment.
