WA COVID replace: New hotel quarantine changes announced

The mandatory hotel quarantine period for returned interstate and international travellers has been slashed for the second time this week – now down to eight days – as the system struggles to cope with a sharp rise in guests testing positive to COVID.

Effective immediately, anyone in hotel quarantine that is double vaccinated and records a negative PCR test on days one and six will on day eight be permitted to leave and complete the remainder of their two-week isolation at a “suitable premises” – such as their own home.

They will be required to submit to two further PCR tests on days nine and 12 – to be conducted at their chosen isolation location by newly-established mobile testing teams – before being released back into the community on day 14.
