I’m a Celebrity crew member charged
Crew member charged with 5 counts of failing to comply with an electronic registration device whilst in Byron Bay.
A crew member from I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! has been charged over multiple alleged COVID-19 breaches on a trip to northern NSW.
The crew member had been granted an exemption to travel to the Tweed-Byron Bay area for work-related reasons only.
Police allege a 31-year-old woman visited several businesses and venues in Byron Bay and Kingscliff over the weekend, breaching her exemption. She allegedly also failed to check in at those locations with QR codes.
The woman was issued with a court attendance notice on five counts of failing to comply with an electronic registration device.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, “That person did the wrong thing.
“The system worked. It was people doing the wrong thing, and I’m really glad police have charged them.”
Byron and Tweed regions have entered a snap 7 day lockdown following a positive case.
Yesterday ITV Studios Australia said in a statement, “We can confirm that one of our crew members has tested positive to COVID-19. This discovery was made through the rigorous testing regime implemented by our CovidSAFE plan. The crew member is fully vaccinated and was wearing PPE while at work.”
The woman is set to appear before court in Tweed Heads on November 8.
