Contact Tracing for Clubs
From Saturday, December 5, community and sporting facilities with indoor facilities will be required to maintain a mandatory contact register for all patrons. This includes clubrooms and licensed venues.
The WA Government has developed the free, SafeWA app<https://kalamunda.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ee2cc435795015fd6d50d6278&id=bde6c0a2a4&e=9345d42391>, an online contact register system that uses QR Codes for patrons and staff to scan to register their attendance.
SafeWA can be downloaded from Apple App Store or Google Play. The app is being provided as a free, easy, contactless solution, however the use of Safe WA is not mandatory.
An alternative format for mandatory contact registers will also need to be available. A paper template is available here<https://kalamunda.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ee2cc435795015fd6d50d6278&id=56dd4b58ff&e=9345d42391>
Details required are location, date, name, telephone number and arrival time. Email addresses are optional.
Clubs and Groups must:
* keep contact details for 28 days
* store the information confidentially and securely.
Clubs and groups have the right to deny entry to anyone who refuses to provide their contact information.
Failing to comply with the new requirements to maintain a contact register could result in fines and penalties of up to $50,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a body corporate or 12 months’ imprisonment.

This Bay is Someone’s Day
As of next week you might see some of the ACROD Parking Program‘s “This Bay is Someone’s Day” campaign materials popping up around the City of Kalamunda. These materials include ACROD bay stickers reminding people to ‘Park Right, Day and Night’ and ranger cards reminding drivers who misuse the bays of the real-life implications their actions can have on the lives of permit-holders. Don’t forget, the on-the-spot fine for illegally parking in an ACROD bay has increased from $300 to $500 while court imposed penalties have risen from $2000 to $5000.
Please follow and encourage your club members to follow the ‘This Bay is Someone’s Day’ Facebook page<https://kalamunda.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=ee2cc435795015fd6d50d6278&id=20697f95e6&e=9345d42391> to see real life stories of ACROD permit holders and what having access to the bays means to them. Also keep an eye on the City of Kalamunda’s social media for more information about this campaign.
