“Safe WA” – get your smartphone ready to sign into coffee shops

From the 5th of December venues in WA will have to keep a register of staff and patrons to enable rapid contact tracing in the event of a coronavirus outbreak. They can do this using a paper based system or the new “Safe WA” app for Apple and Android phones.

If you want to get ready to quickly check into coffee stops you can install the app now:

  1. Open this post on the smartphone that you want to install the app
  2. Follow the instruction in this link: COVID-19 coronavirus: SafeWA guide for patrons (WA Government)
  3. Once you have done all that you will probably want to move the App icon to somewhere on your phone home screen so that you can easily find it when you arrive at the café.
