THREE teenagers were issued COVID-19 related Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) at Woonona on Monday.
The three juveniles were issued PINs after ignoring warnings to return to their homes. About 10.15pm on Monday (April 6), Wollongong police went to a unit on Carrington Street, Woonona, and spoke with four young people.
One of them lived at the address, but the remaining three did not and had received warnings earlier that day regarding their failure to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.
The three boys, aged 15, 16 and 17, were issued with PINs for failing to be home without a reasonable excuse.
Since 17 March 2020, police have issued 11 Court Attendance Notices, and 136 PINs for breaches of the Public Health Act.
