South Australian travellers will now have to self-quarantine when arriving in Western Australia.
Just like that the WA Border is back with travellers from South Australia now to face the same restrictions as Victoria and New South Wales.
Anyone arriving in Western Australia from South Australia will be required to self-quarantine for two weeks, following the recording of three community transmission cases in South Australia.
As a result, based on the latest health advice the following changes to WA’s controlled interstate border will come into effect immediately:
- Anyone arriving from South Australia at Perth Airport will now be tested for COVID-19 on arrival (or within 24 hours of arrival at another COVID clinic) and given a Direction to self-quarantine for 14 days in a suitable premise
- Arrivals will also be required to be tested for COVID-19 on Day 11
- Anyone arriving via road from South Australia will be given a Direction to self-quarantine for 14 days in a suitable premise and required to take a COVID-19 test on Day 2 and on Day 11
- For any SA arrivals earlier today and yesterday, via road or air, they will be contacted by WA officials and will be required to be tested for COVID-19 in the next 48 hours and self-quarantine until results are returned.
These are the initial steps the WA Government is taking to protect all Western Australians, and as always will be reviewed regularly.
