Must wear your mask

PREMIER Gladys Berejiklian says new cases of Covid are still “bumbling along in the community” as Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour urged residents to wear masks.

With several new businesses and shops in Bankstown and Campsie added to the ‘casual contacts’ watch list last week and the state recording five new cases of community transmission yesterday, including one linked to the ‘Berala Cluster’, the Mayor says it is important now more than ever to follow the latest public health orders and restrictions.
Police have also been kept busy, issuing nearly 30 warnings and handing out four fines to people who allegedly refused to wear masks, including two separate incidents at Campsie Railway Station, a man on a train near Panania and a Bass Hill shopper.
