REALITY TV WORKER CHARGED FOR BREACHING PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER

A television crew member, accused of sparking the Tweed and Byron lockdowns, has been charged with breaching Public Health Orders.

Police launched an investigation yesterday, after receiving information a woman from Greater Sydney had travelled to the region and since tested positive for COVID-19.

The 31-year-old had been granted an exemption for work-related purposes only – and was engaged on the series “I’m a Celebrity”.

She allegedly attended several businesses and venues in Byron Bay and Kingscliff over the weekend, which was in breach of the conditions of her exemption.

She’s also accused of failing to check-in at those locations using the QR codes.

The Rushcutters Bay woman was issued a Court Attendance notice today for five counts of fail to comply with electronic registration directive.

She’ll face Tweed Heads Local Court on November 8.

Investigations continue.
