Updated Group 2 Public Health Directions Released
The State Government has released updated Public Health Directions for Group 2 Workers.  
A second version of the Community Care Services Worker Directions has been released to now cover community care critical services workers.
The second version of the Building and Construction Industry Workers and Education Workers Directions were also published late yesterday. When a second version of the Directions are published, the first version is revoked.
The Directions are frequently being amended so please view the WA Government website here for the latest information.
These Directions have potential implications for Local Government and WALGA is seeking further clarification from the Office of the Chief Health Officer regarding:
  • If Local Governments are covered by the Port Worker Directions
  • The scope and coverage of the Building and Industry Construction Worker Directions
  • The impact of the Education Worker Directions on creches and swim schools
  • Whether youth workers are covered by the Community Care Services Worker Directions
WALGA will also be meeting with the Chief Health Officer next week to discuss the scope of the Directions and the inclusion of premises and occupations that Local Government deem to be critical to the ongoing function of the community.
A summary of all current Directions that impact on Local Governments are outlined below.

WALGA anticipates the remaining Group 2 Directions will be released progressively over the coming weeks.
