With school holidays less than a week away, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch is calling for tourists to stay away and not visit the Central Coast region.
“The Easter school holiday period is normally one of the busiest times of the year, but this year I’m asking people to stay at home,” Mr Crouch said.
“If you are on the Central Coast right now but your home address is not a Central Coast suburb, please go home.
“The only reasons to leave home are shopping for essentials, medical care, exercise or essential work and study commitments.”
Mr Crouch said the Central Coast local government area has the fourth highest count of COVID-19 cases in NSW.
“Currently there are 117 cases on the Central Coast and this number will continue to increase unless everyone follows the restrictions and social distancing rules,” Mr Crouch said.
“To slow the spread of COVID-19, we need everyone to stay at home.”
The Public Health Order dated 30 March 2020 prohibits taking a holiday in a regional area.
