Tweed police will be out in force this Easter long weekend to ensure people are not breaking the law by leaving their primary place of residence, particularly for holidays in the Tweed, Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest has announced.
“Thanks in part to the Nationals’ increases in NSW police numbers, there will be more NSW Police across the Tweed and along the northern NSW State border this Easter long weekend,” Mr Provest said.
“Coronavirus laws include enforcing social distancing measures and the banning of all non-essential travel to regional communities.”
“If you are from Queensland and not travelling for essential reasons, you will be sent home. If you break the law, you will be caught and you will be charged.”
“Once this pandemic is over, the Tweed will once again share our beautiful countryside with anyone who wishes to visit, but until that time you must not come here.”
The NSW Government is working alongside the Commonwealth and other states and territories to assist anyone who has been impacted by COVID-19.
