New Queensland Restrictions and updates on our future planning and social media campaign
NEW QUEENSLAND RESTRICTIONS
Please be advised that Queensland has moved from a Very Low Risk Jurisdiction, to a Low Risk Jurisdiction from Saturday 27 March 2021, based on the latest government and health advice.
Under the ‘low risk’ category, travel is permitted into WA, subject to the following strict conditions:
- Complete a G2G Pass declaration, stipulating they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, including which jurisdictions the traveller has been in over the previous 14 days
- Self-Quarantine for 14 days in a suitable premise
- Present for a COVID-19 test on day 11
- All Perth Airport arrivals to undergo a health screening and temperature test on arrival
- Be prepared to take a COVID-19 test at the airport COVID clinic, if deemed necessary by a health clinician (voluntary asymptomatic testing available for all airport arrivals) and
- Land arrivals to be met at the border checkpoint, for a health screening and to have their G2G Pass declaration checked before proceeding to self-quarantine premise.
Please note that there will be no onward, WA intrastate flight travel permitted for arrivals who have arrived in WA via / from Queensland in the previous 14 days.
For further information please consult the WA Government Website at https://www.wa.gov.au/government/covid-19-coronavirus
In addition, travellers who were in Queensland from March 20-26, 2021 and who had been at an identified high risk location, (see list from Queensland Health Website here), are required to quarantine for 14 days and get tested within 48 hours and on Day 11.
Our Industry Liaison, Matt Bronickis, has had discussions with the Council members over the last few weeks. The discussions centred around previous projects, current endeavours and future direction. A number of potential opportunities were identified relating to Rail, Air and Warehousing. A full work plan, timelines and funding will be developed for the next 12 months.
From the recent work completed by the FLCWA on Social Licence, the Campaign Message “Thank Freight for That” is available through social media. The rollout across the social media platforms has been a huge success with the below statistics provided by our media partner “Horse and Hound”.
The campaign had a reach of over 1,100,000 (2 x 7 days), Crossfire reach of 250, 000 and Perth Now reach of 445, 000 per day.
As a part of the rollout of the campaign Council Members will be promoting the key messages in future social media, company websites and other associated methods of communication to highlight the importance of freight.
