Three people slapped with fines for breaching social-distancing rules


Three people in the region have been slapped with fines, and two others cautioned after failing to abide by the strict social-distancing rules in two separate events.


About 5pm on Friday, New England Police attended a licensed premise in Tenterfield Street, Deepwater.


They spoke to a 27-year-old man, who was sitting with a group of patrons drinking.


He was issued with a PIN as he had been spoken to by police the previous day about social-distancing and issued with a warning.


On Saturday, two people were given PINs and three people received cautions after gathering for a barbeque.


At about 11pm, officers attached to New England Police District responded to a noise complaint at a caravan park on Rouse Street, Tenterfield.


Five people were in the bungalow; breaching ministerial orders related to the congregation of more than two people.


A 23-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl were identified as people who had previously received cautions for not complying with ministerial directions and were fined $1000.


The other three were issued with cautions.


Anyone who has information regarding individuals or businesses in contravention of a COVID-19-related ministerial direction is urged to contact Crime Stoppers:https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
