In case you missed it, changes to the SafeWA app that were meant to roll out on February 12 have been brought forward and are now in effect.
The contact tracing app has been expanded to include:
- retail venues
- some commercial transport
- takeaway joints
- certain outdoor functions and gatherings
- visitors at all WA private and public hospitals
This means that we’re urged to always scan or sign-in every time we visit any of these places – even if you’re picking up a takeaway coffee.
Every venue also needs to provide a paper-based contact register system as well, so if you don’t have the app, you can leave your name.
