Chief Minister Michael Gunner said employees who interacted with the public needed to get least one Covid-19 jab by November 13 or they wouldn’t be allowed back to work and faced a $5000 fine.
The new directions apply to:
- Employees at all jobs that involve interacting with members of the public. For example: hospitality, banking, retail, supermarket, receptionists, hairdressers and beauty therapists
- Workers who come into direct contact with people at risk of severe illness from Covid-19, like Aboriginal people or those who can't be vaccinated
- Employees who work in a high-risk setting where there is a known risk of Covid-19 transmission or outbreak
- People who perform work in essential infrastructure, food or essential good security or supply, or logistics
The direction also includes a provision that mandates booster shots for those workers in the future.
Employers will be allowed to request proof of vaccination of staff and will be required to keep a register of the vaccination status of all employees.
