The woman at the centre of the Tweed, Byron and Kempsey lockdowns has now been hit with further charges from NSW police.

The 31-year-old’s accused of breaching the conditions of her work exemption to travel from Sydney to the Northern Rivers.

Yesterday, she was charged with five counts of failing to comply with an electronic registration directive.

She’s now also been charged with ‘relying on permit not comply with permit conditions’, NSW police report.

The woman’s actions forced three regions in northern New South Wales into a seven-day lockdown and caused Queensland to tighten border restrictions to those areas as well.

So far, there’s been no additional cases linked to her infections.

Authorities have also confirmed that she is fully vaccinated.

She’ll front Tweed Court in November.
