‘Dope of the Day’: Police Minister calls out disobedient tradies fined thousands
This weekend’s ‘Super Sunday’ of vaccinations for emergency workers at NSW state hubs aims to boost protection for those on the frontline of COVID.
NSW Police Minister David Elliott encouraged all emergency services workers, salaried or volunteer, from the 12 hotspot LGAs to sign up from midday Saturday.
“Our emergency services do have a unique role in our community, and they do deserve to have special treatment,” he told Jim Wilson.
The Minister applauded the “99 per cent” of NSW residents obeying public health orders, but some, like four construction workers who were collectively fined $13,500 on Thursday, continue to cause problems.
“Dope of the Day yesterday was at Waverley, and of course the guys that travelled up to Lake Macquarie will probably gets today’s award.”
