Police issue statement on investigation into potential breach of isolation orders

On Saturday (24 July 2021), as part of a proactive operation targeting those attending last week’s protest, officers from the Police Transport Command spoke to a 35-year-old man at Central Station.

Inquiries determined he was in breach of the current stay at home orders. He was issued with a $1000 PIN and directed to return home.

The following morning, the man tested positive to COVID-19 and was directed by NSW Health to self-isolate.

This morning (Friday 30 July 2021), police attended the man’s residence at Granville to conduct a compliance check, where they were initially told the man was at a work site in Parramatta.

Subsequent inquiries revealed the man was not at work but was located at a home at Constitution Hill.

Investigations are continuing.
