Long Lines in Sydney Supermarket Ahead of Two-Week COVID-19 Lockdown

Long lines were seen in a Sydney supermarket on June 26, after a new COVID-19 lockdown was announced for Greater Sydney, the Central Coast, the Blue Mountains and Wollongong.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it was “the scariest time that I felt since the pandemic started,” as she announced the lockdown and associated stay-at-home orders.

The lockdown was to take effect from 6pm local time until July 9.
