The WA Government has announced that particular businesses will be required to maintain contact registers for the WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing, from 5 December 2020.

Please note that this requirement applies to all WA race meetings and non-race day events (e.g. function room bookings).

Therefore, anyone attending a race meeting or non-race day event will be required to register their contact details upon arrival to the racetrack. This includes industry participants, patrons, staff, volunteers and contractors.

Details required are location, date, name, telephone number and arrival time. Email addresses are optional.

The WA Government has developed the SafeWA app. This is a free system that uses QR codes to register attendance. It’s quick, convenient, easy to use and contactless.

Therefore, it is strongly encouraged that all individuals download the SafeWA app prior to arriving on-course, to assist our race clubs in ensuring a smooth and easy check-in process for all.

For individuals who do not have access to a device that is able to download the app, a written register will also be available.

For more information on the SafeWA app, including step by step instructions on how it works, click here.

Please note race clubs will have the right to deny entry to anyone who refuses to provide their contact information.

A contact register does not need to be maintained for trials or trackwork, which are able to remain open to the public. However, to ensure compliance with the WA Government’s requirements, any hospitality offerings will be strictly take-away only.

Please note if industry participants fail to comply with these requirements, Racing and Wagering Western Australia’s (RWWA) Stewards may consider such non-compliance to constitute a breach of the Rules of Racing.
