Queries about Regional Travel Restrictions

Published on Tuesday, 7 April 2020 at 12:10:00 PM

Please note that if you have a question about if you would be considered exempt under the new travel restrictions for WA to travel between regions then you need to get in touch with the State Government.
The Shire is receiving a large number of phone calls and unfortunately we cannot answer these queries as this measure has been implemented by the State Government and the enactment of these measures is being presided over by them.
See their website first and foremost for further information - www.wa.gov.au/organisation/department-of-the-premier-and-cabinet/covid-19-coronavirus-regional-travel-restrictions. It is very clear and a copy of the legislation outlining the travel restrictions and exemptions is also available there.
Please note that you do not need to apply for an exemption. If you believe you fall under an exemption category AND are required to travel between these regions you will need to prepare documentation to present to police at the regional check points. This documentation can be a letter/email/SMS from an employer, a copy of your medical referral for an appointment, a copy of your custody arrangement, etc. that supports the legitimate travel.
If you still have not found a satisfactory answer to your query on their website then please contact WA's new hotline for COVID-19 information which is 132 68 43.
