NSW Police are continuing to conduct compliance operations across the state targeting metropolitan residents travelling to regional NSW breaking the Public Health Orders.

Last night police spoke to a 38-year-old man on Denison Street in Mudgee who was reported to be acting suspiciously.

Inquiries revealed the man, from Kingswood, had travelled from Penrith Railway Station to Lithgow Railway Station, before boarding a bus to Mudgee earlier the same day to meet a person he had met on social media.

The man was issued with a $1000 Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) for breaking stay-at-home orders.

In total, 56 PINs were issued yesterday and of those 26 were $200 infringements for failing to wear a fitted face covering.

Police continue to appeal to the community to report suspected breaches of any ministerial direction or behaviour which may impact on the health and safety of the community.
