Terri Irwin masked up to shop for groceries on the Sunshine Coast just as the Australian Government ended its Covid isolation requirements.
The 57-year-old wore a blue face mask and practiced social distancing while shopping at a supermarket in the rural town of Beerwah last Thursday.
The crikey! Dressed in a light blue t-shirt, jeans and gray sneakers, It’s the Irwins star was aware of her surroundings.
She wore her long hair loose, tied a navy blue sweater around her waist, and wore a wristwatch.
She was once seen at the supermarket pushing a shopping cart full of items.
Terri, widow of the late conservationist Steve “The Crocodile Hunter” Irwin, stocked up on toilet paper and even bought packets from two competing brands.
She looked relieved as she returned to her car with her purchases after trekking from the store to her vehicle.
It comes after Terri’s daughter Bindi, 24, spoke out last year about the impact Covid has had on her family.
She spoke to page six about the challenges the Irwins have faced during the pandemic, including lockdowns, border closures and financial difficulties.
“It was probably the hardest time in our lives except when dad died,” Bindi said.
She explained that the venue cannot be closed because Australia Zoo has “over a thousand animals” – even if there are no tourists to generate revenue.
“We still had to feed all our animals, do screenings,” she said, adding, “It’s like we’re still open but with no visitors.”
Terri said the first few months of 2020 have been particularly difficult as she has to spend $80,000 a week just to feed the 1,200 animals.
