A man and woman have been fined after failing to follow self-isolation ministerial directions in the state’s west today.

On Tuesday (24 March 2020), a 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, arrived at Sydney International Airport on a flight from Thailand. They were advised they would be required to quarantine for a 14-day period under a Public Health Order at a Hillvue address.

Officers attached to Oxley Police District received information the pair had travelled from Hillvue to Boggabri on Friday 27 March 2020, where they came into contact with another person.

Today (Saturday 28 March 2020), police spoke to the couple at a Hillvue address. They have each been issued with a $1000 PIN for failing to comply with a direction under Section 7 of the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW).

NSW Police officers have the additional power to issue Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) to anyone found to be in contravention of a ministerial direction under the Public Health Act.

PINs carry on-the-spot fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for businesses.


Another week and another new #1! Allison Forbes takes up the top spot after eight weeks on the chart with ‘Broken Radios’, the first single from her debut album ‘Bonedigger’ and that pushes Brent Larkham and Voodoo Town’s ‘Cool Karma’ down from #1 last week to #2 this week. These moves seem to have stopped ‘Good Momma Bad’ by Andrew Farriss from scoring his second #1 as he moves down one place to #3 (but who knows what may happen – remember Morgan Evans and ‘Diamonds’ went up and down like a lift before hitting #1). Two songs hit the top ten for the first time: ‘Weekend’ by Travis Collins is at #9 and The Crosby Sisters hit #10 with their distinctive cover of John Prine’s ‘Please Don’t Bury Me’. (Incidentally, this is the first time in almost two decades that they have had a chart hit – you can’t keep a good girl duo down!). There’s also two new entries in the top 20 – ‘Carry You With Me’ by Christie Lamb at #19 and ‘Hard Times And Struggle’ by Allan Caswell at #19. Our three hit picks this week are all by artists who have had a #1 on our chart: The Western Distributors, The McClymonts and Natalie Pearson.
