From Saturday 5 December, AVELING Café will be required to maintain a mandatory contact register for staff and customers in order to assist with WA Department of Health contact tracing, should it be required.

AVELING already records participants, staff and guests for course registration and fire safety purposes, however we will now specifically collect the date, name, telephone number and arrival time of all Café patrons as required by the WA Government.

To assist us, the WA Government has developed the free, SafeWA app, an online contact register system that uses QR Codes to register attendance. This will be the preferred method of registration at AVELING Café, however we will also provide a paper form at the Café – if you don’t register via the App you must fill out your details in writing.

SafeWA can be downloaded from:

Download from the Apple app store    Download from the Google Play Store

More information about the app and a how-to video can be found on the WA Government website.

Please note, this is not optional. Failing to comply with the new requirements to maintain a contact register could result in fines and penalties of up to $50,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a body corporate or 12 months’ imprisonment.

To make the introduction of this measure as smooth as possible, we encourage you to download the App and familiarise yourself with the process prior to Saturday.

The contact register records must be kept for 28 days, and will not be used for any other purpose.
