Greek translation of new Public Health (COVID-19 Quarantine) Order 2020 released to community


NSW Police Force Deputy Commissioner Gary Worboys APM released a statement to the general public on Wednesday, detailing the newly enforced Public Health (COVID-19 Quarantine) Order 2020.

The Order directs that a person who arrives in NSW from having been in another country before arrival, must isolate themselves for 14 days.

The NSW State Emergency Operations Controller released details regarding fines that may be enforced if these quarantine arrangements are not applied, along with the best methods to prevent yourself from being diagnosed with COVID-19.

What you need to Know:

• It is an offence for a person to fail to comply with the Health Minister’s Public Health (COVID-19 Quarantine) Order 2020 ($11,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment). The NSW Police Force will continue to work closely with NSW Health and other state and Commonwealth agencies to minimise health risks to the wider community. 

• Self-isolation is crucial to slow the spread of COVID-19. This is a powerful way to protect your family, friends and others in the community.

•  Self-isolation combined with good hygiene measures (such as regular hand washing and coughing into your flexed elbow) slows down the spread of the virus which is highly contagious.

• Self- isolation and good hygiene help protect the most vulnerable members of the community who are at risk of becoming very sick and may develop serious conditions that may lead to death.  Self -isolation also reduces the impact of the pandemic on essential, life-saving health services.

 Staying at home means you: 

• DO NOT go to public places such as shopping centres, work, school, childcare or university

• Ask someone to get food and other necessities for you and leave them at    your front door 

• DO NOT let visitors in — only people who usually live with you should be in your home
