Police respond to COVID-19 breaches

South Australian Police are cracking down on people breaching self-isolation orders and businesses not complying with current coronavirus restrictions.

In a statement, SAPOL said they had received a large number of reports from members of the public regarding suspected breaches of self-quarantine.

"SA Police have established processes with SA Health to triage these calls to determine the most appropriate response which may include police attendance," they said.

SAPOL Eyre and Western Operations Inspector Mark Hubbard said Whyalla Police had been undertaking routine checks to ensure people are complying with their self-isolation requirements.

"We implore people to follow SA Health advice and keep up to date with all developments as this is a dynamic and evolving situation," he said.

"There are very hefty penalties for people who don't comply with isolation requirements."

However Mr Hubbard said there weren't a significant number of cases of non-compliance in Whyalla, which was encouraging to see.

Members of the public are able to report non-compliance to police on either 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 including online at http://crimestopperssa.com.au if you wish to remain anonymous.
