4 Dec


To keep all Western Australians safe, as of December 5th 2020, particular venues and businesses must maintain a contact register of patrons, staff, visitors and contractors for COVID-19 contact tracing.

Details required are location, date, name, telephone number and arrival time. Email addresses are optional.

You must:

  • keep contact details for 28 days
  • store the information confidentially and securely

You have the right to refuse entry to anyone who refuses to provide their contact information.

Keeping a Contact Register
To help businesses and venues, the WA Government has developed the SafeWA app. This is a free system that uses QR codes to register attendance. It’s quick, convenient, easy to use and contactless.

SafeWA can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Alternative contact register formats are available, including recording details electronically or on paper. A template is available on the WA Gov Toolkit page.

For more information, head the the WA Gov website.
