What restrictions are in place in the City of Kwinana from midnight Saturday 13 February 2021?

From Saturday 13 February at midnight, all restrictions in place from 6pm Sunday 31 January will be lifted. This includes mandatory mask wearing. The City of Kwinana had already implemented SafeWA check-ins at all City buildings and this will continue moving forward (no change).

We ask that people visiting our buildings respect social distancing rules (keep 1.5 metres apart, especially in queues) and that those who are feeling unwell stay at home.

What measures are in place to keep the community safe in Kwinana now that COVID19 has re-entered most States of Australia?

The City is following State guidelines for contact tracing and has implemented the SafeWA App QR code system at all City-owned facilities and City-run events. Manual registers are available at the same access points so as not to disadvantage those without access to mobile phone technology. For more information, visit the City’s website.

The City was one of the first councils in WA to activate its Local Recovery Coordination Group, chaired by Mayor Carol Adams, including representation from the City of Kwinana, Department of Communities, Department of Education, South Metropolitan Health Services, Kwinana Police and the Offices of Roger Cook MLA and Madeleine King MP.

Furthermore, the City of Kwinana Council unanimously voted, at its electronic Council meeting on Wednesday, 22 April 2020, in favour of not increasing its total rate income from last year by applying a zero percent rates increase for this year to try and help alleviate some of the financial burden being faced by residents in the face of COVID-19.
