Sydney tourists busted at North Coast holiday hotspot
Two tourists from the Northern Beaches in Sydney have been busted by police for leaving their home without a lawful excuse to take a holiday in the Clarence Valley.
On Saturday January 3 2021, NSW Police were notified that a man and woman, both aged 32, had left their Collaroy home the previous day to travel to Yamba for a holiday.
Officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District spoke with the pair and determined they didn't have a lawful excuse for leaving their home and, in doing so, had breached the Public Health (COVID-19 Northern Beaches) Order. Both were issued an $1000 penalty infringement notice.
