The WA State Government has announced the introduction of a mandatory requirement to maintain a contact register of visitors at certain businesses. Busselton Jetty Train and Underwater Observatory fall into this category. This requirement will commence Saturday 5th December 2020.
Busselton Jetty Inc. will be using a combination of our Fareharbor bookings system and the SafeWA QR code and app which safely and securely records contact details with the Department of Health. If you do not have a smart phone, or do not wish to download the app, a manual register will be available.
Going forward, all those booking ahead online will be required to provide names and phone numbers for all adults in their group before they can proceed with the booking. For those that book in person at the Interpretive Centre, all people who are 17 or older in your group will need to scan the QR code on the Jetty Train or in the Underwater Observatory, or fill out the manual register.
Providing your contact details helps make contact tracing more efficient, if it becomes necessary. This helps stop the spread of COVID-19 infection.
If you have been at a venue at the same time as someone who later tests positive to COVID-19, providing your details means the Department of Health can quickly contact you so you can then make important decisions to protect your health and the health of your family and close contacts, and prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
