A broad range of WA businesses will need to comply with mandatory contact tracing requirements as part of the latest COVID-19 control measures.
The Western Australian Government has announced that from December 5, certain businesses will need to maintain a contact registration system to keep a record of their customers.
The Government has launched the SafeWA app, which utilises QR codes, to help businesses register patrons.
Businesses will also be able to use a manual pen and paper register.
The types of businesses and venues which will be required to maintain a government contact register include:
- Food and licenced venues (restaurants, cafés, bars, pubs, taverns, nightclubs)
- Gyms, indoor sporting centres and pools;
- Places of worship and funeral parlours;
- Beauty and personal care services including hairdressers and barbers;
- Galleries and museums;
- Cinemas, theatres and other entertainment venues;
- Auction houses and real estate inspections;
- Community facilities, libraries and halls;
- Zoos and amusement parks;
- Function centres;
- Accommodation facilities that already have check-in arrangements in place (hostels, hotels, large campgrounds).
Businesses face fines of up to $250,000 for non-compliance.
