    As stated by Premier Mark McGowan:

    “Based on health advice, anyone who has visited these specific locations must go and be tested immediately and self-quarantine for 14 days from the time they were at the high-risk location.

    “Western Australia has been free from community transmission for more than 11 months and we want to keep it that way.

    “We’re closely watching the situation and will get up-to-date health advice to ensure we are doing everything we need to do to keep WA safe.

    “People need to heed the health advice which has kept us safe. We need to stay the course.

    “Thanks to our controlled border, we have the systems in place to help protect the community and adjust border controls if that is what is required.”

    As stated by Health Minister Roger Cook:

    “We always stand ready to act swiftly and cautiously to protect Western Australia.

    “We thank everyone for their patience as we work through this current situation.

    “But it is important that anyone who has been to these locations or develops symptoms is tested and self-quarantines to protect the wider community.”
