Roxy Jacenko has offered a crude response after being visited by police following anonymous complaints her business allegedly breached Covid-19 restrictions.

The PR guru, 41, shared a photo to Instagram on Thursday of herself flipping the bird and carrying a cake with the message ‘F**k Covid’.

‘I’ve got tea and cake ready for the raptor squad today,’ Roxy wrote in the caption, referring to Strike Force Raptor, the NSW Police squad tasked with busting bikie gangs.

‘Thanks my darling girls Eli and Emily for the LOL I miss you at work,’ she added.

Roxy’s post comes a day after she had her eastern suburbs offices visited by police once again, following an anonymous tip her business wasn’t Covid-compliant.

The celebrity publicist shared a CCTV image to Instagram showing two officers in face masks waiting outside her office.

‘Wouldn’t be a normal day in the life of RJ if we didn’t have a daily visit from some lovely officers who’s [sic] time is wasted, yet again, by another anonymous tip-off about me “breaking the Covid-19 rules”,’ she wrote alongside the image.

‘Suffice to say – again we toured the office & were of course compliant.’

‘I asked next time for the raptor squad,’ she joked, referring to the special NSW police branch dedicated to gang activity.

The timestamp on the video grab showed the visit was paid on Wednesday, at 3pm.

This week, the Sweaty Betty PR guru is at her wits’ end after she received a letter in the mail from SafeWork on Tuesday informing her that she was being investigated for allegedly putting her staff at risk.

In the warning letter, she was informed that a complaint has been made suggesting ‘workers or others may be at risk’ and that an investigation was taking place into alleged ‘inadequate controls from biological hazards’.

This is despite accommodating two earlier visits from her local police who were sent out to inspect the conditions in her office following complaints from an unknown source.

Roxy is losing an estimated $65,000 every week that the city stays in lockdown, and says that she, like any other small business owner with their head screwed on, is doing everything she can to comply so Sydney recovers as soon as possible.

She already had most of her 30-strong team working remotely when Premier Gladys Berejiklian told Sydneysiders to stay home unless absolutely necessary.

Ms Berejiklian said the current Covid threat is the most significant Sydney has ever faced, and, as a result, Jacenko sent the rest of her non-essential staff packing.

On any given day, Roxy has no more than four staff in her office. They work reduced hours and perform essential duties like packing and shipping orders, which simply can’t be done from home.
