COVID-19 Resources

Playgroup WA is working hard to support playgroups and provide relevant information on COVID-19 health and safety requirements. We endeavour to provide you with relevant resources and information to help you and will continue to update this page on an ongoing basis.

WA Government Updates and Information

The Government has planned for WA borders to open on 5 February 2022. Announcement here. This announcement includes information about plans for mask wearing requirements in specific venues and proof of vaccination.

Meanwhile, there has been some community transmission of COVID in WA, in December 2021 and January 2022. To keep up to date on the changing requirements, such as mask-wearing, please visit the Government websites below:

  • Current restrictions here.
  • Public exposure sites here.

Other key points for playgroups to note:

  • Important requirement: Mandatory contact registers at community venues
  • Vaccinations: Whilst playgroups are not currently mentioned in the general proof of vaccination government mandates, playgroups should check with your venue owner/operator in relation to any specific venue requirements. Playgroups operate in a wide range of venues, and some will require proof of vaccination. If your playgroup is considering what to do, you may like to read our Playgroup WA Immunisation Statement in the Playgroup WA Resource Kit, here.
  • Guidance for Covid Safe Operation of Playgroups – read our general, practical guidance for the safe return/operation of playgroups in WA.

We endeavour to keep this page updated with the latest information. For support, please contact Playgroup WA.
