Statement from the NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller regarding the deployment of ADF personnel.
The NSW Police Force is significantly expanding its COVID-19 welfare and compliance activities in Sydney over the coming days and I have requested 300 ADF personnel to boost our operational footprint.
What this means is police officers will be assisted by ADF personnel as they deliver food parcels, conduct welfare door-knocks and go through compliance checks of stay-at-home and self-isolation orders.
This operation will be led and managed by the NSW Police Force.
The ADF will be present in a supporting role under the direction of the NSW Police Force.
The operation will be centred around the welfare of the community and ensuring that stay-at-home orders issued by NSW Health to specific individuals are observed.
ADF has provided essential assistance over the past 18 months – particularly during last year’s border operation, the ongoing hotel quarantine operation and the assistance provided with logistics support in the Police Operations Centre.
The ADF has also previously provided assistance in response to bushfires and floods.
The NSW Police Force will continue to work with the community to ensure the well-being and safety of everyone in NSW.

Stay home and stay safe The COVID-19 Delta variant is more transmissible than the previous variants of COVID-19 we’ve experienced. A single person can infect more people more quickly. This makes it more important than ever that we all follow the health advice.
If you live in Greater Sydney (including Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas), you must stay home and only leave your home if you have a reasonable excuse, such as going to get tested. If you must leave home, stay within your local area. Please do not travel outside your local area if you can avoid it.
Remember, you should not have visitors to your home during the stay at home order. If you need care or assistance (including personal care), you should limit your visitors to one person.
If you experience any mild cold-like symptoms please get tested immediately and self-isolate until you receive a negative test result. For NSW Health advice visit nsw.gov.au.
Keep checking the confirmed case locations and areas of concern regularly via nsw.gov.au.
