"Here is a person that on four occasions blatantly disregarded the public health order," Deputy Commissioner Worboys said.

"It is not just about the person themselves, it is about their family, their community, about people who openly go outside of the orders and put everyone at risk."

NSW Police issued 671 COVID-19 infringement notices in the past 24 hours to residents breaching public health orders.

Of those, 393 were issued to people who were out of their home without a reasonable excuse.
