I’m not sure that state you are in but in NSW you could use Section 62 of the Public health ACT which is specific for an individual Public Health order but they will say that you breached their orders based on ministerial jurisdiction listed under section 7 which gives way too much power to a minister but it is all there in section 7 and you can drive a truck through that dodgy legislation that can be abused by tyrants in charge now.

But in terms of penalties you do have an option to have this rescinded because under section 10 listed here below you only need a reasonable excuse. Now the judge or magistrate may disallow the reasonable excuse and so the excuse should be a solid one.
These fines are ridiculous and we are being governed by tyrants and so we do need to fight back through the courts. Have a look at your reasonable excuse because a judge should take this into consideration especially if your excuse is rock solid and there are solid extenuating circumstances and your son doesn’t have SARS-COV2 (Covid-19 is the disease not the infection) and he needed to be where he was and he wasn’t possibly causing any type of infection to anybody around him.
There are probably other ways to fight these fines like Patrick King in Alberta Canada who subpoenaed the CMO to release the scientific data proving the existence of the live virus in Albertas ie a live virus collected from an infected Albertan to grow the live virus in a lab to prove that the individual infected was in fact infected by Covid. The CMO didn’t have any data and so Alberta is winding back all restrictions in August. This is a David and Goliath case.
