Ms McKay pointed to the premier’s actions in a tweet, saying This is in direct conflict with NSW Health advice and shows an extraordinary lack of judgement”. Speaking on 2GB radio this morning, Ms Berejiklian said “particularly when you take a test you are meant to self-isolate, I should have shut my door and not seen anybody and I didn’t do that, I actually just proceeded as usual, I had people coming in and out”. She also said it was up to everyone’s interpretation as to whether she actually broke the rules.
