Sydney CBD’s is now an exclusion zone as police conduct COVID-19 compliance checks on major roads and transport routes into the CBD.
Taxi, rideshare and passenger services are prohibited from conveying passengers to Sydney’s CBD between 9am and 3pm today, under a prohibition notice issued by NSW Police.

Essential workers, or anyone that requires medical treatment, will be able to make their way to their destinations. I’d like to thank the affected transport companies in advance for their compliance” – Central Metropolitan Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Peter Thurtell.
