Published on Thursday, 3 December 2020 at 4:10:19 PM

The Shire of Yilgarn wishes to advise/remind all individuals and prescribed businesses and venues of their responsibilities in regards to Contact Tracing in relation to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Certain businesses and venues are required to maintain mandatory contact registers for staff and patrons from Saturday, 5th December 2020 for the purpose of Department of Health COVID-19 contact tracing.

 

For a full list of prescribed businesses and venues visit https://www.wa.gov.au/government/announcements/maintaining-contact-registers-requirement-keep-wa-safe

 

The WA Government has created a free app called SafeWA, which can be downloaded onto your smart phone and will enable businesses to keep a digital register system, however, the app is not mandatory and other electronic or hard copy registers can be used.  For more information on the app visit https://safewa.health.wa.gov.au/

 

Please do your part by being patient and assisting businesses and venues as they manage these new requirements, and remember this is to keep you, your family and your friends safe.
