Residents in Sydney are currently facing a COVID-19 lockdown and these particular ones in apartment buildings are limited to how much alcohol they can drink and they're not happy about it.

Apartment blocks locked down by NSW Health are facing a terrible time because their alcohol deliveries are being policed as part of a policy to limit the number of drinks being consumed each day. They are doing this to “ensure the safety of health staff and residents” but it was only ever going to annoy them.

Common Ground resident Robin Elhaj said: “They are searching all bags and things coming into the building… They confiscated a series of gifts. So things like bottles of spirits, we weren’t allowed to have those and we still (aren’t)."

People living in these buildings are allowed to receive a ration of one of the following: six beers or pre-mixed drinks, one bottle of wine, or one 375ml bottle of spirits. These limits will be in place until lockdown rules are eventually lifted in the area.

However, residents can speak with a clinician if they think they are entitled to more alcohol.

Do you think this is fair?

  • Really 😅. I guess the clinicians will receive an uptake on "I need more alcohol" requests.
