The state government has moved to shut down a lockdown loophole that saw people changing their address to avoid COVID restrictions.
At the request of Transport for NSW, Service NSW has now suspended the change of address function on its website for all LGAs across NSW now under stay at home restrictions.
The move was in response to some people looking to circumvent COVID restrictions by changing their primary address to one in a Local Government Area not subject to lockdowns.
"The NSW Government is aware of increased demand from customers to change their residential address and is working to tighten access around the transaction to help manage potentially fraudulent activity," a Service NSW spokesman said.
The website now carries the statement that "it is an offence to provide false or misleading information to a public authority. This includes false or misleading information about your residential address."
The Service NSW spokesman said people were advised to delay updating their address until after public health restrictions have eased and they would now have three months from the move date to do so.
"Affected customers who need to validate their new address are advised to carry alternative proof of residential address such as their council rates notice, a utility bill or rental agreement," the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Wollongong MP Paul Scully wants to see the CBD's vaccination hub delivering the 2500 shots a day for which it was designed.
"People of all ages are wanting to do their bit to keep their families and the community safe from COVID infection and spread," Mr Scully said.
"But there just aren't enough doses available and the Wollongong Mass Vaccination Centre has had its capacity constrained to just 700 doses a day when it was designed to deliver up to 2500 doses daily."
He said he wanted the state government to commit more doses to the Wollongong hub.
"Following the Premier's announcements of additional activities for fully vaccinated adults next month, now more than ever Wollongong needs the additional vaccination doses we were promised would arrive."
