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:
- No-one can go into remote Aboriginal communities unless they are an essential worker or they are going there for work or school.
Some remote Aboriginal communities have applied for exclusions from the travel restrictions and they, or their amenities, are open to visitors.

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.
