How can we help?

Covid-19 information for Suitsme clients based in WA

During Sessions

Masks

Suitsme strongly recommends that you wear a mask during sessions. This will reduce the chance of you being a “close contact” and needing to self isolate and reduce the likelihood of you becoming Covid-19 positive.

You are required to comply with all public health advice set out by the Western Australian Government. You can keep up to date with the advice here.

Vaccination

Are Suitsme workers vaccinated?

All Suitsme workers meet the government mandated vaccination requirements.

Do I have to get vaccinated?

Suitsme encourages you to get vaccinated against Covid-19. By getting vaccinated you are helping to keep yourself, Suitsme workers and your community safe. Furthermore, current Government restrictions mean that your access to the community will be severely limited if you are not vaccinated.

Your worker can support you to get vaccinated, all you have to do is ask them. Once you are vaccinated, Suitsme encourages you to indicate this in the app; there is a specific field for it.

How to I get Proof Of Vaccination

Proof of vaccination is now required to access a range of venues including cafes, gyms and cinemas. You can see the full list of venues here.

There are a number of ways you can prove you are vaccinated. You can read about them all here, but we recommend setting up the Service WA app.

ServiceWA App

The WA Government has launched the ServiceWA app.The app allows you to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination, check in at businesses and venues with SafeWA, and access your G2G Pass for interstate travel – all in one place. The app is a bit tricky to set up, and your worker can give you a hand with it if you like.

What do I do if I have symptoms?

Let your worker know before they attend a session with you.

Get tested and follow government guidelines if you have any of the following, no matter how mild:

  • Fever (≥37.50C) OR recent history of fever (e.g. night sweats, chills), without a known source
  • Acute respiratory symptoms (including cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose)
  • Acute loss of smell or taste

You can find out more about Covid19 testing here and find a testing clinic here.

What is a “close contact”?

A close contact is now defined as:

  • a household member or intimate partner of a person with COVID-19 who has had contact with them during their infectious period,
  • someone who has had close personal interaction with a person with COVID-19 during their infectious period, where they spent 4 hours of cumulative contact with them in a residential setting, (i.e. a home, accommodation facility) in any 24-hour period where masks have been removed by both people during the period of contact
  • someone who is directed by WA Health that they are a close contact.

What do I do if I’m a close contact or test positive for Covid-19?

  1. Let your worker know before they attend a session with you
  2. You or your worker must then inform Suitsme immediately
  3. Follow Government guidelines
  4. Take a COVID-19 test. You can find out more about COVID-19 testing including Rapid Antigen Tests here

What do I do if I test positive for Covid-19?

  1. Let your worker know before they attend a session with you
  2. You or your worker must then inform Suitsme immediately
  3. Follow Government guidelines

If you are a close contact then you will need to self isolate for 7 days. Suitsme can continue to support you if you are required to self isolate and we will do this via non-face-to-face support.

You do not need a negative COVID-19 result to leave isolation and receive face-to-face supports if you have completed 7 days of isolation since testing positive, and no longer have symptoms.
