Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced new rules, requiring people who live in the Fairfield LGA to have regular COVID-19 tests if they are required to leave the area for essential work. This also applies to people living in the lockdown region who are travelling to the regions.
"We are asking people who are working or moving between greater metropolitan Sydney and into the regions to get a weekly Covid test, even if they don’t have symptoms just to make sure that we reduce the incidence of essential workers passing on the virus," she explained.
Brad Hazzard says NSW Police can demand the result of a test if someone leaves Fairfield LGA, or anyone in Sydney leaves for the regions. @9NewsAUS— Chris O'Keefe (@cokeefe9) July 13, 2021
