Proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements effective Monday 31 January 2022

Published on Thursday, 27 January 2022 at 12:54:57 PM

From Monday 31 January 2022, proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements will apply state-wide for anyone over the age of 16 years and be expanded to include new higher-risk venues.

The Shire of Ashburton is continuing to monitor all State Government mandates and ensure we are ready to adapt with additional requirements as and if they occur.

From next week, proof of vaccination is required for all patrons of Onslow Gym. At this stage the mandate doesn't not impact any of our other operations, though this may change.

It does impact many of our local hospitality and retail venues across each of our towns and community members are reminded to be respectful and courteous if you are asked to show proof of vaccination at any of the venues below:

  • All hospitality venues, food and licensed venues including restaurants, dine-in fast food, cafés, bars, pubs, clubs, taverns, licensed commercial boats: excluding food and non-alcoholic beverage takeaway; food courts; roadhouses, and petrol stations
  • Night clubs
  • Bottle shops (including drive through bottle shops)
  • Indoor entertainment venues (including play centres, gaming and gambling, theatres, concert halls, cinemas, live music venues, including Perth Convention Centre) and specified cultural venues
  • Crown Perth Complex
  • Major stadiums
  • Music festivals and indoor large events with more than 500 people, unless exempt.
  • Gyms, fitness studios and centres
  • Zoos and amusement parks
  • Visitors to residential aged care and hospitals

Community sport and school-based events, unless at one of the specific venues listed, are excluded from the proof of vaccination requirement. 

Venues, staff and patrons all have a shared responsibility when it comes to showing proof of vaccination, with venues required to take reasonable steps to ensure all patrons are double dose vaccinated, or have a medical exemption.

Community members are reminded to help keep our towns safe by downloading the ServicesWA app and always checking in where required.

Please wear a mask if you are required to do so, practice safe hygiene measures such as keeping hands washed and sanitised, cough and sneeze into your elbow, maintain physical distancing at all times, and stay home if you feel unwell.
