WA moves to high case load protocols
Beginning tomorrow, those in the same household or in close proximity to an infectious person will only need to self-quarantine for seven days. Anyone in close proximity to a positive case will also need to isolate.
Casual contacts will no longer be considered. Additionally, Rapid Antigen Tests will be able to be used more broadly but PCR tests remain the preferred option.
New guidelines for schools including shortened isolation periods will also take effect tomorrow.
