New COVID law - can police force entry?

Recommended Posts


So the law says now they can enter premises if they suspect a breach, but can they force entry?

There's no explicit power of entry and the breaches are all summary offences, but regulation 9(1) quite vaguely allows a relevant person to take such action as is necessary to enforce the regulations. I think it'd be unwise to treat that as carte blanche though.
