Potential COVID-19 quarantine hub in WA’s North West

As reported on August 28th in the West Australian below:

"The mining industry is exploring the potential for a COVID-19 quarantine hub in WA’s North West so they can fly in skilled workers from overseas.

The Chamber of Minerals and Energy WA is leading the project, which includes looking into the possibility of relocating existing mine accommodation and facilities to a new site.

The concept emerged as a priority out of the State Government’s recent Skills Summit, where industries — which also included agriculture, construction and hospitality — flagged the need for quarantine centres dedicated to skills migration.

It would take a minimum of six months to be established, take only foreign workers who were vaccinated, and require approval from the State and Federal governments."
