COVID-19 Update Friday 7 January 2022
On Friday 7 January 2022, Acting WA Premier Roger Cook announced the easing of some of the current COVID-19 restrictions. For many the mandatory mask wearing restriction will be lifted. However, hospitals, aged care facilities, public transport, taxis and ride sharing services will continue with mandatory mask wearing at this time. Please click here to read the full announcement.
Visitors and staff are required to wear a mask, practice social distancing and continue to undergo declaration screening. If you have been to an exposure site (check exposure sites), please do not visit until you have received a negative COVID-19 test.
Home and Community Care
All Home and Community Care staff will wear masks at all times and will utilise a screening tool prior to entering a client’s home. If you are a client and you have been to an exposure site, please notify your service co-ordinator as soon as possible.
As we have proven in previous times of community transmission, we are well prepared to deal with this situation and we are committed to protecting the health and safety of our residents, clients, staff and volunteers as our highest priority.
We will keep you updated on any changes.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, if you have any questions please contact your site/service manager and check the WA State Government COVID-19 website.
