From 5 December 2020, indoor sport stadiums will be required to maintain contact registers for WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing.
Providing contact details helps make contact tracing more efficient, if it becomes necessary. This helps stop the spread of COVID-19 infection.
In the event of COVID-19 being detected in the WA community, contact registers help to protect the community by providing information to the WA Health contact tracing team, which enables them to quickly identify and assist anyone that may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Below we have included State Government advice on a series of questions. You will need to work with your Venue Owner to understand the contact tracing system that they will be using and what your role will be in this system. The majority of our country associations operate in local government run facilities and it is very likely that they will be responsible for the contact tracing system at your venue. In such circumstance, your role is more than likely to ensure that your members are aware of what they have to do to enter the venue.
We would recommend that people download the SafeWA app as this will be the easiest way for all Western Australians to check into facilities. You must however, also provide a manual paper based sign-in system for those Western Australians who do not download the SafeWA app.
If you are responsible for running your stadium you will need to ensure that you meet the contract tracing requirements. You should make sure you engage your venue owner to ensure that they are comfortable with the contact tracing system that you will use but you will ultimately be responsible for implementing and maintaining the contact register.
