Two more people have been issued Penalty Infringement Notices for failing to self-isolate as per their obligations under COVID-19 regulations NSW Police reported on Friday.
A 39-year-old woman was granted a permit to travel from Victoria to NSW and arrived at Sydney Airport on Monday, July 20, and was made aware of the directions in relation to self-isolation, meaning she was to remain at her residential address until Tuesday, August 4, police said.
Police conducted a compliance check at the woman’s Redfern address on the Tuesday evening and found she was not at home. She returned home while police were at her address and was warned in relation to the breach.
About 2.30am the following morning officers were patrolling the Redfern area when they stopped a vehicle in order to breath-test the driver. When officers approached the car, they immediately recognised the woman as being the person they had warned only hours before.
She was returned home and issued with a $1000 Penalty Infringement Notice.
In the second incident, Riverina district police attended a holiday apartment in Temora, on July 23, after receiving information in relation to breaches of self-isolation directions.
Police spoke with two Victorian men, who arrived under a permit in NSW on Tuesday, July 14, and planned to move to Queensland, so were staying at the location in NSW for their self-isolation period.
It was established one of the men had gone to a local gym for a workout and attended a chemist earlier that day. Following inquiries, officers issued the 37-year-old man with a $1000 Penalty Infringement Notice.To order photos from this page click here
