She was arrested, taken to Granville police station and charged with not complying with curfew in an area of concern and not wearing a fitted face covering in an indoor area of common property.
The woman, from Strathfield, which is also an LGA of concern, was granted conditional bail and is due to face Parramatta Local Court on October 5.
Meanwhile, five men, who police say were stopped in rural NSW last week, have been fined after allegedly breaching COVID-19 self-isolation rules and gathering outdoors in Sydney’s south-west.
Police were patrolling Optimism Street in Leppington, in the Liverpool LGA of concern, about 11.30am yesterday when they saw five men allegedly sitting at a table on the footpath and not wearing face masks.
“Officers stopped and spoke to the men, who revealed they had tested positive to COVID-19 in rural NSW and had been ordered to self-isolate for 14 days after being escorted back to Sydney last Monday (August 23),” police said.
All five men – aged 23, 25, 26, 31 and 32 – were issued $5000 infringement notices for failing to comply with COVID-19 directions.
They were escorted back to the premises to complete their mandatory isolation.
