As an organisation which engages with Aboriginal people, our workplaces, including Bidyadanga Community, now require acceptable proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry.

KTLA staff will manage access through the following measures:

  • All visitors need to check in with Office 2 and show acceptable proof of vaccination or a medical exemption upon arrival, and will only be admitted past reception once this has been provided.

  • Admitted visitors must follow the WA Government mask wearing mandate, provide their name, time of visit, and contact details, and follow other safety procedures such as social distancing and hand sanitising.

Please be aware that visitors who feel unwell or have flu-like symptoms, or who do not meet the above requirements, will not be admitted and may be required to use other forms of engagement such as via phone or videoconference.

For Karajarri events, such as meetings, forums, workshops and AGMs held at venues other than KTLA workplaces, acceptable proof of vaccination may also be required. This will depend on the proof of vaccination requirements of the venue where the event is taking place.

 We understand this a difficult time of change and uncertainty. We thank you for your ongoing understanding as we find new ways to provide our services, while keeping our community and staff safe.

The WA State Government has announced mask wearing mandates for all indoor public settings, across the State including the Kimberley Region, effective from 6am Monday 21 February 2022.

This means all visitors to KTLA offices and workplaces will be required to wear a mask and when attending any KTLA meeting in an indoor setting.

In conjunction with this announcement, the State Government has announced that the WA borders will open to interstate travellers on 3 March 2022. Travellers 16 years and over must be fully vaccinated to enter WA and return a negative RAT on arrival into WA.

Again, we acknowledge the fast pace at which things are evolving and will continue to keep our community informed.

Thank you for your cooperation.
