Western Australia coronovirus update as at 3 May 2021

The Department of Health has reported three cases of COVID-19 overnight – all returning travellers.

The two males, in their 20s and 50s, and a woman in her 40s are all in hotel quarantine.

The State’s total number is now 1008.

WA Health is monitoring 27 active cases of COVID-19 and 972 people have recovered from the virus in WA.

In relation to the community cases announced last Friday, 26 of the 58 identified close contacts have tested negative to COVID-19. Other tests are pending. The 26 who tested negative includes the other household members of the Pan Pac security guard.

The Department has identified and contacted 217 casual contacts, who have been directed for testing – 43 have so far tested negative.

Anyone who have ordered from Uber Eats or Menulog since 29 April are encouraged to check the list of sites (HealthyWA) (food and business) that were briefly visited by persons who have since tested positive for COVID-19. While the risk is deemed to be low, anyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of being at one of these locations at the dates and times indicated are advised to get a COVID test and isolate until they get the results. If they remain asymptomatic, there is no action other than to monitor for symptoms.

To date, the WA Department of Health has administered 100,388 COVID-19 vaccinations, including 23,503 people who have received both doses. Yesterday, 518 people were vaccinated.

The Commonwealth Government vaccination national roll-out figures can be found on the Australian Department of Health website (external site).
