COVID-19 Information for Equestrian Sport

From 5 December 2020, particular businesses will be required to maintain contact registers for WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing, if required.

If COVID-19 is detected in the WA community, contact registers help to protect us all by enabling the WA Health Contact Team to quickly identify and assist anyone that may have been exposed to COVID-19.

To assist, the WA Government has developed a free app, SafeWA, which will provide businesses with a digital contact register system.

SafeWA is an efficient and safe way to record patron and visitor contact details where they can check-in, using the app.

Update to the Sport and Recreation Industry - as at 28 April 2021

As you will be aware by now, the Western Australian State Government has eased some of the restrictions relating to COVID-19. Following a short three day lock down the eased restrictions may still present some challenges for the industry over the next few days.

We aim to keep you as up to date as possible with the latest information but as we saw in the two previous rounds of restrictions, we need to accept the speed at which external decisions are made, the time available to consider the implications and then develop appropriate communications.

You and your members/participants will have many questions and it's important the answers are based on the right information. All general information should be sourced from www.wa.gov.au, which now includes the frequently asked questions which can be found at – https://www.wa.gov.au/government/publications/covid-19-coronavirus-transition-out-of-lockdown-frequently-asked-questions

At this stage there is no other information on what restrictions will be in place from 12:01am on Saturday.

All enquiries to our sport and recreation service area should be directed to [email protected]
