A woman who spat at two security guards at a Sydney hospital is among four people charged in NSW yesterday for breaching COVID-19 orders.
The 28-year-old woman was waiting to be treated at St Vincent’s Hospital in Darlinghurst yesterday afternoon when she became frustrated with the delay, NSW Police said.
She allegedly assaulted a security guard before spitting in the face of a second security officer, police said.
Another woman at World Square in Sydney’s CBD was charged with assaulting police and also violating a COVID-19 order after she spat on a paramedic.
The 23-year-old woman was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital and then Day Street police station where she was charged.
A 24-year-old man pulled over for a roadside breath test in Narrabri, in the state’s north west, was also charged under the COVID-19 orders.
The man had already received two warnings and four infringement notices for not complying with coronavirus restrictions.
The man’s breath test returned a negative result but he was unable to provide a reasonable excuse for not leaving home.
In total, NSW Police issued 24 infringement notices in the past 24 hours.
