WA Health has issued advice for recently returned travellers from Tasmania, after a person tested positive for COVID-19 two days after they left the state and arrived in London.

All arrivals into WA from Tasmania since Saturday, 26 June 2021 who have been to any of the listed exposure sites (external link) during the relevant times are required to:
