At both St Dominic’s and Our Lady of Good Counsel Churches, a QR Code Poster will be situated at the entrance for parishioners to scan with the SafeWA app. For those who don’t have the app, your details (name and phone number) will be recorded manually as mandated by the WA Health Department.
SafeWA is the WA Government’s free online contact register app that’s free, easy to use, safe and contactless.
From 5 December 2020, churches must maintain contact registers for WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing.
If COVID-19 is detected in the WA community, contact registers help to protect us all by enabling the WA Health Contact Team to quickly identify and assist anyone that may have been exposed to COVID-19.
To help, the WA Government has developed a free app, SafeWA, which will provide businesses with a digital contact register system.
SafeWA is an efficient and safe way to record patron and visitor contact details where they can check-in, using the app.
