SYDNEY WOMAN FINED TWICE IN BYRON BAY FOR FAILING TO SELF-ISOLATE

A Sydney woman has been fined twice over the New Year period for failing to self-isolate while holidaying in Byron Bay.

Tweed-Byron officers attended a resort in Byron Bay about 8:30pm on Thursday, 31 December, after receiving information about a possible breach of public health orders.

Police were told the woman had been notified she was a close contact of a positive COVID case but was not self-isolating and had not been tested.

Police say the woman was given personal protection equipment to assist her to travel safely to a testing facility.

Officers returned to the resort about 8pm the following day and found the woman was not self-isolating.

The 27 year old was issued a $1,000 fine for failing to comply with directions under the Public Health Act.

On Sunday, police were called to the resort after reports the woman was still not self-isolating and swimming in the resort pool.

Following further inquiries, the woman was issued with another $1,000 fine for failing to comply with public health orders.
