current advice

From Friday 9 September 2022, some COVID public health measures will be eased in the community. The current requirements are:

Masks

Masks remain mandatory for staff working in our:

Group homes
Respite facilities; and
Allied health services

Masks must also be worn by all visitors to our group homes and respite facilities.

Close Contacts

If you are a close contact, moving forward you will no longer need to isolate if you have no symptoms. However, you must take a Rapid Antigen Test daily and wear a mask at all times outside of your home.

Visitors

Visitor limits will now be increased to four (4) people, per resident, per day.

Additionally, larger group events may be undertaken with the permission of the manager (e.g. birthday parties and christmas gatherings).

Vaccinations

Visitors to residential disability facilities no longer require mandatory vaccination, however visitors to homes and hubs will continue to be screened for symptoms upon entry through our existing sign-in procedure.

ServiceWA App

You no longer have to sign in to venues using the ServiceWA App, other than at WA hospitals. Proof of vaccination and contact registers will still be in place in some venues. For more, see HERE.

Any questions relating to vaccinations, or for anything else relating to COVID, please email [email protected].
