This past week, 49 footy players for the Canterbury Bulldogs in NSW were tested for COVID 19.
As the NRL continued its 3rd week back into the regular season, Bulldogs forward Aiden Tolman was forced into isolation after a staff member tested positive at his child’s school.
Acting NRL chief Andrew Abdo said Tolman had been forced to enter a fortnight of isolation because of the “complicated situation” that it brought to the league.
Tolman also commented on the fact that this one incident sparked a bit of panic among the club and the league.
In other news, trials are now resumming in Sydney and NSW.
Also, Sydney’s Redfern Legal Centre has claimed that more than $1 million worth of fines were issued during the 1 month of the great lockdown.
In that, it seems that most of these fines were one-off infractions of $1000 for alleged-breaching of social distancing measures.
Samantha Lee, a lawyer leading the centre’s police accountability practice said that these fines were “such hefty amounts in a time when people are going through dire financial and emotional consequences.”
