A 21-YEAR-OLD woman in Coonamble has been issued with an infringement notice by police after she allegedly breached social distancing rules.
The incident was among a spate of breaches to the Public Health Act across NSW on Wednesday with police issuing 13 penalty infringement notices.
At 1.30am on Wednesday, police stopped a car in Coonamble containing five people and gave them a verbal warning about social distancing, public gatherings and non-essential travel.
Officers allege that at 8.45am the same morning, one of the occupants of the vehicle, a 21-year-old woman, was spotted by officers walking around Coonamble without a legitimate excuse.
She was issued with an infringement notice.
In a separate incident, at 3.15am on the same day officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District fined a 23-year-old man for not comply with noticed directions.
The man was given a warning by police the previous evening, before being caught leaving his home a second time without a reasonable excuse.
Police did not give a location for where this second incident occurred.
