The Double Bay beauty salon owner, 36, shared her diagnosis on Instagram on Tuesday, revealing she’d caught the Omicron variant despite being triple vaxxed.

Fisher said her symptoms had been extremely mild, which she attributed to having had two doses of the vaccine and recent booster shot.

She wrote: ‘Day two and I’ve taken four Panadol total. I have just had a loooot of sleep (which isn’t really that unusual for me as I can sleep for Australia amirite?)’

The businesswoman contrasted her symptoms with a bout of food poisoning she’d experienced after dining at a Subway restaurant over Christmas, insisting Covid-19 was a ‘walk in the park’ compared to gastro.

‘What I can say for certain is that I would rather get Omi 1 billion times over than ever eat a Subway Italian BMT ever again. I’ve had hangovers way worse than this also,’ she said.

‘I know everyone experiences this differently, vaxxed and unvaxxed. But given my immunity would be so low right now after the food poisoning saga of 2021, all in all I’m feeling pretty good in the scheme of things.’

‘Thankfully I got my booster last week, which supposedly kicks in instantly,’ Fisher added, before encouraging fans to get their booster shot as soon as possible.

The mother of two, who is now in isolation, concluded: ‘Counting down until I can squeeze my babies; that’s the cruelest part for me.’

The pair had been spotted getting cosy at the ritzy Intercontinental Hotel, a stone’s throw from both their businesses.

Kristin shared photos of the impromptu ceremony, revealing they had a maid of honour and best man join them, and the group dined on Chinese food for the reception.

But after word spread of her close relationship with Cole, Fisher revealed she’d separated from Barnes within months of returning home from the United States.

She said at the time the split was amicable for the sake of their two children, Eddie and Lila, and both parties maintained they will forever be a ‘family’ despite going separate ways.

Fisher kept a relatively low profile for a few months in early 2021, before a shock Covid case in mid-June sparked widespread lockdowns and business closures.

After eight weeks without work, a fed-up Fisher announced she would be taking her business to the local park and servicing her fully vaxxed clients, exploiting an apparent loophole in the Covid public health orders.

The move was lauded as ‘genius’ among some of her most high-profile clients, many of whom offered their word they’d be there.

Local council told Daily Mail Australia at the time there was little that could be done to stop the move, given police are the only people who can enforce the murky rules.

Kristin spoke of her business struggles in October, insisting she wasn’t complaining but it had been ‘the most challenging time of my life’.

‘Imagine owning a business, that you’ve worked so hard at for 10-plus years, and all of a sudden your entire revenue is cut in half,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

‘You and your employees are now on the dole. We all have rents and mortgages to pay. I have children to feed also. This has been hands down the most challenging time of my life. Because I’m alive, my family are healthy and we have the end in sight now.’

What her clients didn’t know was that Fisher was simultaneously dealing with a crisis entirely separate to keeping her business afloat. 

On July 17, 2021, patrol officers pulled over a Kia Rio travelling down Curlewis Street in Bondi Beach.

What began as a routine traffic stop quickly shifted when police noticed a ‘frantic’ Fisher in the passenger seat trying to avoid the police officers’ gaze and scrambling to get out of the car.

At her feet lay two bags of cocaine.

The driver, later identified as 19-year-old private school graduate Brooke Moody, couldn’t provide her passenger’s name or a valid excuse for being outside of her own local government area.

Fined: Fisher was convicted and fined $550 after she failed to appear in Waverley Court in November 2021, charged with possessing a prohibited drug and failing to comply with public health orders

Both women were fined for breaching Covid health orders, while Fisher was charged with drug possession offences and Moody accused of being her dealer.

The scandal slipped under the radar undetected for months until September 21, when Fisher was convicted in absence for drug possession.
