NSW police issue statement on QR check-in and mask compliance crackdown in large retail outlets

Statement from the NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller

NSW Police will be conducting a compliance crackdown on the use of QR check-in and face masks in and around supermarkets and large retail premises in the Greater Sydney area.

There is no reasonable excuse that members of the wider community are not adhering to current health orders and using the QR check in and wearing face masks.

NSW Police Force will have a zero-tolerance approach to members of the public and businesses breaching these orders.

Recent heath advice has shown that supermarkets and large retail stores are a known source of concern when it comes to spreading COVID-19.

Businesses not complying with the QR checking system will receive a $5000 fine.

Members of the public who fail to check in using the QR code will be fined a total of $1000.

Not wearing a face mask carries a fine of $500.

Anyone who has information regarding individuals or businesses in contravention of a COVID-19-related ministerial direction is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
