WA Health was today notified of two truck drivers who returned a positive COVID-19 test in NSW. The men travelled together in one truck from NSW via Victoria and South Australia, and arrived in WA yesterday.

They have had minimal contact with others throughout their travels, but full contact tracing is currently underway and all close contacts will be quarantined.

A list of exposure locations is available.

People who have visited the exposure sites at the relevant times need to get tested immediately and self-quarantine for 14 days from their date of exposure.

Western Australians are encouraged to stay vigilant and get tested if they develop symptoms, and use SafeWA and mandatory contact registers to check into businesses and venues.

A list of testing clinics is available on the HealthyWA website (external link).
