COVID-19 – Mandatory contact registration

From Saturday 5 December 2020, the City is required to register the contact details for visitors to some facilities, including libraries, Leisure World, the Don Russell Performing Arts Centre, the Addie Mills Centre and youth centres, as well as those participating in City programs, as part of mandatory State Government COVID-19 control measures.

Before entering these premises or participating in a program, visitors will need to register using the SafeWA app and a QR Code or sign in on a written register.

The reintroduction of contact registers is an additional protection measure and will assist with WA Department of Health contact tracing, should it be required.

This means the City will be required to collect the date, name, telephone number and arrival time of all patrons, staff, visitors and contractors 16 years and older that attend the premises.

The contact register records must be kept for 28 days, and not used for any other purpose.

To assist with these records, the State Government has developed the free SafeWA app, an online contact register system that uses QR Codes for visitors to scan to register their attendance. The City will use this method to register visitors’ details, but will also maintain written records of attendance, for those who choose not to use the app.

Failing to comply with the new requirements to maintain a contact register could result in fines and penalties of up to $50,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a body corporate or 12 months’ imprisonment.
