COVID-19 Contract Tracing

Published on Monday, 7 December 2020 at 8:00:00 AM

As of 5 December, all of the Town’s facilities will be adhering to the State Government’s direction to maintain contact registers of patrons, staff, visitors and contractors for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes.  

On arrival at certain workplaces, facilities and halls, the Town requires everyone over the age of 16 years to either:

  • Scan the QR code at the venue using the SafeWA App;
  • Provide your details to our friendly staff (at the Library and Youth Centre); or,
  • Complete a paper-based sign-in sheet (which are located at all of our halls, function centres and facilities) 

The Town strongly encourages all patrons and community members to download the SafeWA App, as this will make entry to these facilities quick, easy and contactless.

Voluntary contact registration at the Customer Service Centre, outdoor events delivered or supported by the Town and at Council and Committee meetings, will also be available.

The contact registers will only be used to trace people in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak, with all details otherwise remaining confidential and only stored for 28 days. In the event of COVID-19 being detected in WA, contact registers will be provided to the WA Department of Health contact tracing team to help quickly identify and assist anyone that may have been exposed to COVID-19.

We understanding that this may cause inconvenience, however the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, workers and broader community is our highest priority.

Please remember:

  • It is a mandatory requirement for certain venues
  • Children under 16 years of age are encouraged, but not required to provide their details for contact tracing
  • The Town of Bassendean maintains the right to refuse entry to anyone who refuses to provide their contact information
  • To please stay at home if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, and remember to practice physical distancing and good personal hygiene

The Town of Bassendean thanks you for your cooperation and for keeping our community safe.
