CEWA has received confirmation that the Australian Goverment and the WA State Government are now providing consistent advice in relation to self-isolation of students and staff who have travelled through or from Hong Kong.
The revised advice is that students and staff returning from Hong Kong (including transiting through) are no longer required to stay at home until 14 days after leaving Hong Kong - regardless of when they left Hong Kong.
While the difference in advice previously provided may have caused confusion, we are certain you will appreciate that this precautionary advice was recommended to ensure the safest possible environment for students, staff and the broader WA community.
Further updates on the virus will be updated here.
