At Rocky Bay, the health and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our highest priority. While the rules and guidelines regularly shift, our commitment to your health is ongoing.
This page will be updated as new information becomes available. Check back often for the latest news and updates.
We understand that this can be a stressful and difficult time for people, but if we partner together, we can lower the risks of transmission and support each other as we navigate the changing landscape
From Friday 9 September 2022, some COVID public health measures will be eased in the community. The current requirements are:
Masks remain mandatory for staff working in our:
Respite facilities; and
Allied health services
Masks must also be worn by all visitors to our group homes and respite facilities.
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.
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).
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.

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].
