Our COVID-19 Response
RNO continues to maintain our specific COVID-19 Plan and Quarantine Procedures on site in preparation for any COVID-19 case.
We remain ready to update our plans in accordance with direction and advice from the State Government and the Chief Medical Officer should the situation in Western Australia change.
A range of measures were put in place for a period in 2020, and will be re-initiated as appropriate.
Key actions that will be re-initiated if the need arises can be;
- Temperature checks on arrival at the site;
- COVID-19 testing as required;
- All buses practicing social distancing with designated seating arrangements
- Our buses not stopping in any community between Albany, Esperance and the site;
- Sanitisation of buses at depots at Albany, Esperance and Hopetoun and when they arrive at the site;
- Employees driving in and out being instructed not to stop in any community between Albany and Esperance, and not to stop in Hopetoun or Ravensthorpe;
- No physical contact with members of the Jerdacuttup community, only phone and email permitted;
- Employees in site accommodation being instructed to remain on site during the course of their rostered shifts and return directly to their home communities upon completion
- Any other appropriate measures
