WA Lockdown – information for disability service providers

Reads: COVID-19 News update

23/04/2021

The WA Government has announced that effective from 12.01am Saturday, 24 April until 12.01am Tuesday, 27 April 2021, the Perth and Peel regions will enter a three-day lockdown. People are required to stay at home unless they need to:

  • Work because they can’t work from home or remotely;
  • Shop for essentials like groceries, medicine and necessary supplies;
  • Seek medical or health care including compassionate requirements and caring for the vulnerable; and
  • Exercise within their neighbourhood, but only with four other people and only for one hour per day.

NDS would like to remind members about the COVID-19 preparedness guide developed by the COVID-19 disability taskforce with the Department of Communities.

Vaccinations will continue over the three-day lockdown period.

Masks

Masks must be worn from 6.00pm Friday, 23 April for the duration of the lockdown.

Masks are mandatory for people aged 12 and over except:

  • While at home
  • During vigorous outdoor exercise
  • While in a vehicle with members of your own household
  • Exemptions apply for people with disabilities.

Testing

The lockdown is the result of two new positive cases of COVID-19. The WA Government has released a list of locations attended by these two cases. People who were at these venues or anyone experiencing symptoms must get tested.

See: COVID clinics - Testing locations

NDS will keep members up to date as information comes to hand.
