Australia Masked Mother's Day weekend in NSW
Indigenous death in custody at Cessnock the seventh across Australia since March
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says she’s “deeply concerned” after an Indigenous man died at Cessnock Correctional Centre yesterday — the seventh across Australian prisons since March. A Corrective Services NSW spokeswoman said the 37-year-old man was found unresponsive in his cell about 10.00am yesterday. He was pronounced dead an hour later. “Corrective Services NSW and NSW Police are investigating the incident,” the spokeswoman said.“All deaths in custody are subject to a coronial inquest.” Four of the Aboriginal deaths in custody since March 2 have been in NSW prisons.
Sydneysiders are being urged to wear their masks and adhere to other restrictions without cancelling their Mother's Day plans on Sunday.
The restrictions - which extend to the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast and the Illawarra - will remain in place until at least the end of the weekend. They include compulsory masks on public transport and a 20-person cap on indoor gatherings.
But Premier Gladys Berejiklian doesn't want them to suppress Sydneysiders' spirits, encouraging residents to keep their Mother's Day bookings for Sunday and continue supporting local businesses.
The premier said she was "pleased" with the state's progress after zero locally acquired cases were identified in the 24 hours to 8pm on Thursday.
The restrictions came after a man in his 50s from Sydney's east was diagnosed with the virus on Wednesday, followed shortly by his wife.
The man's strain has been linked to a man in hotel quarantine, but health officials are yet to identify how it was passed between them.
