WA introduces mandatory COVID registering at ‘high-risk’ businesses from next month

Western Australia will enforce mandatory COVID-19 registering at many businesses from next month, but Premier Mark McGowan insists the system is “not relevant” to the easing of border restrictions.

The new contact tracing system will come into effect from December 5, requiring hospitality venues, gyms, cinemas and other businesses to keep track of patrons.

This can be achieved through customers scanning QR codes using a new SafeWA app or using existing means, including filling out paper forms.

Fines of up to $250,000 for non-compliant businesses and $50,000 for individuals will be enforced.

WA eased its hard border restrictions earlier this month.

However, travellers from Victoria, NSW and South Australia are still required to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival until those states go at least 28 days with no community transmission.
