With school holidays now underway, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch is calling on Sydneysiders to stay away and not visit the Central Coast region.
“The school holidays are normally one of the busiest times of the year for local businesses and accommodation providers, but unfortunately the COVID-19 outbreak means that people must 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 or compassionate needs, outdoor exercise, and essential work or education commitments.”
Mr Crouch said the Public Health Order dated 26 June 2021 specifies that “taking a holiday is not a reasonable excuse” for leaving home.
“We need everyone to abide by the restrictions so that our Health experts can stop COVID-19 from spreading any further,” Mr Crouch said.
“Central Coast residents are the eyes and ears for Police, which is why I’m encouraging people in our community to report any possible violations of the Public Health Order to Crime Stoppers.”
