A woman who caught a bus from Dubbo to Orange while knowingly COVID-positive has been fined.
Last week the woman presented at Orange Hospital, where officials discovered she had travelled across LGAs while infectious.
On Monday, Western NSW Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner Geoff McKechnie said she had since been fined $1000.
"It's a complex matter in many ways and I understand that person is now back in Dubbo in some appropriate accommodation and being cared for by a number of agencies here in town," he said.
Assistant Commissioner McKechnie said in the 24-hours up to Monday afternoon, 125 people had been fined across the western region for COVID-related breaches.
Of them 25 were issued in the Dubbo and Orana Mid-Western police district.
"A handful of those for face covering and the rest for not having a reason to be out that was appropriate," he said.
"Still people flouting those rules and putting people in danger and really risky activities that are totally unnecessary."
