Western Australia

Our homes in Western Australia are safe at present from COVID-19 but we must remain vigilant.

Western Australian currently has a controlled border, allowing travel into WA from most States and Territories, with some continued quarantine requirements.

The WA Government continues to closely monitor borders in-line with COVID-19 outbreaks in other states and Territories. Please click here for up-to-date information: https://www.wa.gov.au/organisation/covid-communications/covid-19-coronavirus-controlled-interstate-border

Travellers from interstate must abide by all WA Government directives regarding quarantine and isolation, and MUST NOT visit a residential aged care home during a period of quarantine or isolation.

All visitors to our homes will continue to be screened on entry and we will require evidence of a current Influenza vaccination. 

Should there be any evidence of community transmission in WA please rest assured we will work closely with the WA Department of Health to act quickly and place any local homes into lockdown as this is managed.

The safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff remains our number one priority.

We thank you for your continued support.
