The Apollo restaurant in Potts Point fined for COVID breach


The Apollo restaurant in Potts Point has been fined over a new coronavirus breach three months after being at the centre of one of Sydney’s biggest COVID-19 clusters.

During a routine business inspection on Saturday, Kings Cross police found the up-market restaurant in McLeay Street was in breach.

“It was established that the restaurant was using an outdated COVID Safety Plan and was not up to date with the current requirements under the Public Health Act,’’ NSW police said in a statement released today.

“Further, the manager was unable to locate a copy of the venue’s liquor licence, as required under Liquor Regulation 2018.”

The manager was issued with a $5000 fine.

In July, the restaurant was closed down for two weeks after a staff member tested positive to COVID-19. A further 22 cases, including diners, were linked to the restaurant.
