Aboriginal Communities

There are currently strict restrictions for people travelling in and out of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia. These restrictions will help protect communities from the spread of the virus:

Is it safe for our Elders to leave the house?

  • Older Aboriginal people have a higher risk of getting very sick with the coronavirus.
  • It’s very important they continue to keep their distance from other people and keep washing their hands.
  • Keep Elders away from other people who are sick, and if you feel sick, keep away from your Elders until you feel better.
  • If your Elders are sick or have an illness, they should stay at home.

Can we go back to work?

  • Most workplaces can open again if it is safe for their workers.
  • You can go back to work if your boss says it’s ok.
  • Don’t go back to work if you are sick.
