Contact registers introduced for COVID-19 tracing

Visitors to certain facilities within the Shire of Mundaring will be asked to register their contact details from 5 December 2020. 
From that date, particular businesses and organisations must maintain contact registers for potential WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing. 

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

Affected Shire facilities and venues will include:

  • Shire of Mundaring Reception

Patrons will be asked to provide details of the location, date, name, telephone number and arrival time. Email addresses are optional.

The State government has developed a free app, SafeWA, which will enable a digital contact register system. Where a digital option is not available, patrons may be asked to complete a hardcopy register.

Businesses and venues identified by the government for maintaining a register include:
  • Food and licensed venues (restaurants, caf├ęs, bars, pubs, taverns, nightclubs);
  • Gyms, indoor sporting centres and pools;
  • Places of worship, and funeral parlours;
  • Beauty and personal care services including hairdressers and barbers;
  • Galleries and museums;
  • Cinemas, theatres and other entertainment venues;
  • Auction houses and real estate inspections;
  • Community facilities, libraries and halls;
  • function centres;
  • Accommodation facilities that already have check-in arrangements in place (i.e. hostels, hotels, large camp grounds).
SafeWA is an efficient and safe way to record patron and visitor contact details where they can check-in, using the app. 

Individuals can download the SafeWA app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and follow these instructions:
