All people arriving in WA who are directed to either hotel or self quarantine should download the G2G Now app to allow for digital quarantine checks by WA Police.
What is G2G Now and why should I use it?
G2G Now is a mobile application which enables you to complete virtual quarantine checks. The app uses facial recognition and phone location data to ensure people in quarantine remain at their registered address throughout their mandated quarantine period.
Using the G2G Now app helps make quarantine checks easier for you. If you don’t use the app, you will receive in-person visits from police officers.
Who should download G2G Now?
Anyone entering WA who is directed to quarantine.
How does the G2G Now app work?
Once you have downloaded the app and registered your details, you will be prompted to check-in using the app at various times throughout the 14 day quarantine period. When you receive a notification to check-in, you have 5 minutes to take a photo of yourself. The app then matches the photo and location with your registered details to ensure compliance with quarantine requirements.
WA Police are carrying out regular checks on people in quarantine to ensure everyone is doing the right thing. If police officers arrive at your registered address and you are not there, you may have committed an offence under the Emergency Management Act, which can result in fines of up to $50,000 and imprisonment.

Anyone entering WA also requires a mandatory G2G PASS. For more information see the G2G PASS page.
