Based on the latest health advice, a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for most occupations and workforces will be introduced in a phased approach. This approach will apply mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for expanded industries in WA (which will be classified as either Group 1 or Group 2 industries and occupations), as well as introducing a requirement for all critical workers to be vaccinated to attend work in the event of a lockdown or similar restrictions.
In related news, within Australia and internationally the state of border closures is constantly evolving. A summary of Border closures for all States and Territories was released by Aviation Australia to assist organisations in understanding the different requirements when travelling through inter-state borders. As always, please also refer to State and Territory official sites for the latest updates and detailed information.
