A Jindabyne Café has been ordered to shut its doors for a week following a series of alleged covid safety breaches.

NSW Police officers visited ‘The Market’ Café and Shop a total of four times between 29 June and 2 July.

Each time officers observed staff and visitors not wearing masks, failure to display QR code check-ins, no signage about face covering requirements of capacity limits and lack of a COVID-19 sign in register.

As a a result, the Café’s owners, a 32-year-old woman and 33-year-old man, were arrested and charged with the failure to wear a face covering within a retail setting.

The pair were released on conditional bail.

A follow up visit to the Café again found a lack of face coverings being worn by staff and visitors and no sign-in process.

The owners have now been fined $2,000 for breach of the states Public health Orders and are due to appear in court next month.
