This page was last updated Wednesday 2 December 2020.

From Saturday, 5 December, some WA businesses and venues will be required to maintain a contact register for staff and visitors for COVID contact tracing. Visitors to most City facilities will be a required to either scan a QR code using the SafeWA app, or to complete a hard copy register. 

This will help the Department of Health to quickly and easily contact people who may have been in the same location, at the same time, as a person who tests positive to COVID-19.

SafeWA contact register

The contact tracing registers will be in place at the following City venues:

  • Civic Centre
  • Operations Centre
  • Collier Park Village
  • Libraries
  • Animal Care Facility
  • Recycling Centre
  • Rangers building
  • Community facilities
  • Senior Citizen’s Centres
  • Men’s shed
  • Halls
  • George Burnett Leisure Centres
  • Sporting pavilions/clubrooms
  • Old Mill
  • Ferry Tram
  • Heritage House
  • Collier Park Golf
  • Child health clinics.

There will be two registration methods available:

  1. Electronic (preferred) using the free SafeWA app developed by the State Government that can be downloaded via the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store
  2. Manually by completing the hard copy (paper) contact register at the venue.  

The electronic method is encouraged as it is easy to use and more efficient for contact tracing. 

More information is available on the State Government website

WA Roadmap Phase 4

Phase 4 of the COVID-19 roadmap has been extended with modifications to the two square metre rule for some venues. From Saturday October 24, selected venues that predominantly hold seated events will be exempt from the two square metre rule. They will be permitted to reach up to 60 per cent of their usual maximum capacity for seated and ticketed performances. These venues include theatres, concert halls, auditoriums, amphitheatres, cinemas, comedy lounges and performing arts centres. 

For full details of the WA Roadmap, visit the website.

The City does not have any authority to enforce directives related to social distancing. If you have any concerns about this issue, please contact Crime Stoppers on 131 444.
