COVID-19: Safety Guidelines and Plans

Relaxing restrictions and bringing workers back into the Community Services Sector.

On 10 May 2020, the State Government released a four-phase roadmap to carefully ease COVID-19 restrictions.

Phase Two of the roadmap commenced on Monday, 18 May 2020 and Western Australians have been encouraged to return to work unless they are unwell or vulnerable. This phase will include a return to the workplace for many community services sector employees currently working from home, as well as a large number of volunteers.

Safety Guidelines and Safety Plans 

The Department of Communities (Communities) has developed the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and Safety Plans information sheet to support the community services sector in bringing their workers back into the sector due to the relaxing of restrictions.

Communities will continue to work with the community services Peaks Forum members on ongoing advice for specific sectors as the recovery phase is implemented.

We encourage you to share the COVID-19: Safety Guidelines and Plans with your networks.
