In accordance with the Community Care Worker (Restrictions on Access) Directions, Legal Aid WA staff and contractors at our premises or providing services must be partially vaccinated against COVID-19 by 1 December 2021, and fully vaccinated by 1 January 2022.
Clients will NOT be required to provide evidence of their vaccination status when accessing Legal Aid WA premises or services. This also includes any support persons a client may bring with them (such as friends, family members, carers, and interpreters).
Our approach is to put the safety of our staff, contractors, visitors, and clients at the centre of everything we do. Legal Aid WA is currently revising in-person contact protocols designed to mitigate the risk of the spread of COVID-19. Measures will escalate to respond to any increased prevalence of COVID-19 in the community and may include the use of additional personal protective equipment, increased social distancing or other measures for practitioners, clients and other visitors.
More information about our response to COVID-19 and how it may impact on our services is available on our website: COVID-19: How we can help
