The Federal Government has already announced that all overseas arrivals to Australia must self-isolate for 14 days irrespective of the country of origin. Their advice is that for an indefinite period, no one should travel overseas. The rules of self-isolation remain strict and the financial penalties severe.
The State Government has closed the borders including all aircraft landing. Only necessary supplies and essential personnel will be permitted to enter. This should dramatically reduce the risk of the virus being spread from the overseas source countries to Australia.
The number of reported cases of the virus in WA remains low compared to the National average as stringent controls continue to be imposed.
The Government has recommended that visits to aged care facilities should be limited in duration and number at any one time.
The Government has stated that from 1 May, all Visitors must have had their Influenza Vaccination in order to visit an Aged Care Facility. You are required to provide proof of vaccination and this will be recorded on our database.
