Wearing of Face masks at Perth Airport Terminals and on Aircraft

  To continue keeping WA safe, wearing a face mask is now mandatory in Western Australia while:
  • at an airport
  • travelling on aircraft
  • transporting a person subject to a quarantine direction (e.g. in a personal vehicle, private car, hired car, ride-share vehicle or taxi) ** Webliink to Gov WA Notice **
Airports and air travel can present an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission, and wearing face masks is effective in helping to prevent this. Where a person, subject to a quarantine direction, needs to engage in transport services, all people in the vehicle (including the driver) are required to wear a face mask. This includes private, hired, taxi and rideshare vehicles that may be used to travel from:
  • the airport to their suitable premises for self-quarantine, or
  • their place of self-quarantine to a COVID Clinic to present for their Day 11 COVID-19 test.
Children aged 12 years and under do not need to wear a face mask. Penalties up to $50,000 and $250,000 bodies corporate may apply for people who fail to comply with this requirement. ** Link to EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACT 2005 ( WA ) Section 72A AIRPORT AND TRANSPORTATION ( FACE MASK ) DIRECTIONS **   Weblink to = ^^How to put on and take off your face mask**
