Venue Fined for Failing to Comply with Public Health Orders

Saturday, August 1st, 2020

A pub in southwest NSW and its licensee have copped fines after taking “no steps” to comply with COVID-19 heath orders.

The Temora establishment was fined $5000 and its licensee $1000 for non- compliance with public health orders after police attended about 12.30pm on Thursday.

Police said the pub had no sign-in book and that “no steps had been taken” to comply with the ministerial directions designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the Harpoon & Hotel Harry in Surry Hills, Matinee Coffee in Marrickville and Tan Viet in Cabramatta have all been closed for deep cleaning and contact tracing.

Harris Farm Market in Leichhardt and Darlo Bar in Darlinghurst also confirmed they were both frequented on July 26 by people who have since tested positive to COVID-19.
