Mandatory Contact Register: 

The State Government has announced that more Western Australian businesses and premises will be required to maintain contact registers to further strengthen WA’s contact tracing capabilities, should it be required.
Contact tracing is one of the most effective measures in controlling the spread of COVID-19 if a community outbreak occurs and ensures potential chains of transmission are interrupted.
Effective from Friday 12 February 2021, the following WA business premises will also be required to keep a contact register for the purpose of Department of Health COVID-19 contact tracing:
  • retail venues (including supermarkets, department stores, shopping centres, pharmacies, hardware and department stores) and retail components of other businesses where customers are physically present such as bank branches;
  • commercial buses or vessels that can carry 12 or more people where different groups of people interact (party buses, wine and food tour buses, hop-on/hop-off tour buses, sightseeing tours, party/function boats, sightseeing/tour boats, private charter buses/boats);
  • public and private hospitals (visitors only - persons visiting patients, or attending meetings/lectures, couriers, and contractors);
  • takeaway food and beverage services;
  • events with a COVID Event Plan (500+ patrons), and certain outdoor functions and gatherings under 500 people (e.g. weddings, corporate functions, fetes, festivals).

The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley would like to remind members of the community that mandatory sign-in for businesses and venues will come into effect on Saturday 5 December 2020.
The State Government recently reintroduced the mandatory contact register to assist in minimising the risk of a COVID-19 community outbreak. The State Government has provided a free ‘SafeWA’ app to ensure a convenient sign-in for businesses and individuals. The Shire recommends patrons download the app for an effortless sign-in.
