The WA Chief Health Officer has broadened the definition of healthcare settings to include general practice when determining whether to place work permissions/restrictions on a healthcare worker after a COVID-19 exposure.
The Furloughing of Healthcare Staff – Interim Guidance document now applies to WA public sector clinicians, private health providers in hospital settings, general practices and pharmacies.
These guidelines should be implemented immediately for these groups.
