This weekend, Wyndham North and Werribee Police along with over 100 Australian Defence Force personnel will be commencing a month long blitz in the Wyndham PSA, conducting spot checks and maintaining road blocks 24 hours a day.
We will be at Shopping Centres, in public spaces, patrolling the roads and responding to any reported breaches.
Any and all detected breaches of COVID-19 restrictions will be dealt with a ZERO TOLERANCE approach.
There are ONLY four reasons to leave home:
1. Shopping for FOOD or other ESSENTIAL items,
2. To provide care giving, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment,
3. For exercise (outdoor exercise only, with only one other person or member of your household),
4. Work or study, if you cannot work or study from home.
Persons outside their homes for reasons other than stated above WILL be committing an offence against Section 203(1) of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and WILL receive a $1652 Infringement Notice.
There will be no warnings and ignorance will not be an accepted excuse.
