Five young men pinged for breaching health orders in Leppington

Five men have been issued $5000 penalty infringement notices after allegedly breaching the Public Health Order in Leppington yesterday.

Police officers were conducting proactive patrols on Optimism Street just before 12 noon as part of ongoing Covid-19 compliance checks, when they observed five men sitting at a table on the footpath.

None of the men were 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.

Following inquiries, all five men – aged 23, 25, 26, 31 and 32 – were issued $5000 penalty infringement notices (PIN) for not complying health orders.

The men were escorted back to the premises to continue their mandatory isolation.
