Police and Australian Capital Territory (ACT) park officers ordered 100 people to leave after violating public health rules by staying in the closed reserves along Cotter Road and Paddy’s River Road on Saturday.

Around 40 vehicles were found in the reserve before people were instructed to leave.

In most cases, police claim that people have ignored the clearly marked signs indicating that the area was closed.

In the wake of Saturday’s events, the police have reminded people that several parks and reserves are still closed to the public, including Namadgi National Park (including the visitors center), Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve (including the visitors center), Lower Cotter Catchment, Cotter precinct (including Cotter Campground and Blue Range), Kambah Pool, Uriarra Crossing, Woods Reserve Campground, Northern Borders Campground, and Googong Foreshores.

Superintendent Naomi Binstead urged people not to be complacent when rules change.

“We know lockdown is hard, and we are urging people not to become complacent,” she said.

“We have to continue the great work that everybody has done to date so that we can keep positive incidents in our community at a low.”

Binstead also said that they will continue their enforcement activities and will not be afraid to issue infringements or arrest individuals in breach of health directives.

“Everybody has had enough time to become aware of the regulations and to follow them,” she added.
