Statement from NSW Police Force Commissioner Mick Fuller

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has issued directions to stop the spread of COVID-19, which kills people.

You must stay at home unless you have a reasonable excuse for leaving.

Shopping for food, travel to work or school, medical treatment or exercise are all reasonable excuses.

Exercise is important for physical and mental health. The list of exercise types is endless and it is not possible to list them all; and some forms of exercise are more active than others.

The important thing is that people comply with the two person rule when doing exercise, or that they only exercise with their household.

As I keep saying, a good rule of thumb is that if you are questioning whether you should be doing something, it is best to give it a miss.

Treat every situation like YOU have the virus.


SAVE LIVES. Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says new social isolation rules will last for 90 days and hopefully not longer.

Gatherings of more than two people, apart from immediate family, are banned in NSW as are all non-essential activities

"It is 90 days. People will have gotten the message by then, hopefully," he said on Thursday.

"We won't be talking about the powers, we'll be talking about what does it look like coming out of this."
