“They are searching all bags and things coming into the building … They confiscated a series of gifts. So things like bottles of spirits, we weren’t allowed to have those and we still (aren’t).”
I am so glad we have the 2nd Amendment. Thank you, Founding Fathers!
The New South Wales (NSW) Health has now limited alcohol consumption in locked-down Sydney apartments to “ensure the safety of health staff and residents.”
Six beers or pre-mixed drinks. One bottle of wine. One 375ml bottle of spirits.
Do you have more than that? They will take it away from you.
NSW Health recently applied the rule on Mission Australia’s Common Ground building. Residents said someone is inspecting care packages before they receive them:
“They are searching all bags and things coming into the building … They confiscated a series of gifts. So things like bottles of spirits, we weren’t allowed to have those and we still (aren’t),” Common Ground resident Robin Elhaj said.
Does the NSW have the power to limit a person’s alcohol in their private residence? The news said “it is unclear” since “public health orders do not mention alcohol limits.”
But the Sydney Local Health District said “the buildings became subject to alcohol consumption restrictions” once the NSW Health took over.
The NSW police spokeswoman insists the police “do not have powers” to confiscate “alcohol delivered to residential buildings.” She also said they are not doing it.
However, the spokeswoman confirms the NSW Police “ensure compliance with the Public Health Orders” at the lockdown apartments. They will “assist NSW Health if required.”
The police already dealt with protests over the lockdown. I wonder if they will face even more with this latest insane restriction.DONATE
