So much for social distancing. This was how #cooperpark in the #easternsuburbs was found this morning after a group of #COVIDIDIOTS decided to party there. Used condoms, pill bags, bottles, all next to a kids playground. The #goldensheaf has nothing on this. pic.twitter.com/jB8jO2j26G

The current indoor and outdoor gathering limit in NSW is 20 people, by the way. Given the testy situation in Victoria right now, it's super disappointing to see people breaking the rules.
The police aren't pleased, either. "A number of private parties were shut down due to non-compliance with social distancing guidelines, with attendees moved on from the area," a spokeswoman for the cops told the SMH.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Sunday that she was disappointed to see people ignoring social distancing rules. "I get extremely concerned and upset when we see people flouting the rules that are in place because that will take us down the path of Victoria," Gladys said. "We are literally at a crossroads – the next month is absolutely critical. It is absolutely unacceptable for people to be breaching the rules at this stage.”
She warned: “Do not be surprised if the Government takes any further action in relation to large gatherings.”
NSW Police is also looking into a trial rugby match in Bellevue Hill on Saturday arvo, which saw guests crammed together on the sidelines. Last week, the Golden Sheaf in Double Bay copped a $5500 fine after it allowed 250 people to join the queue outside.

NSW Health said over the weekend the number of coronavirus cases linked to Sydney pub Crossroads Hotel in Sydney’s south-west suburb Casula had jumped from five to nine. The govt is urging anyone who visited between July 3 and July 10 to self-isolate for 14 days from the visit.
Australia had 279 new recorded cases in the last 24 hours.
