Perth COVID exposure sites updated after FIFO worker returned weak positive test


WA authorities added six new exposure sites overnight, after a COVID alert involving a FIFO worker who returned a low positive test yesterday.

The new locations span North Fremantle, Greenwood and South Perth.

These are in addition to the sites listed yesterday in Fremantle, Subiaco and Scarborough.

Although Health Minister Roger Cook said yesterday there was “no reason to believe this would lead to a lockdown”, he noted that there was “a lot of cause for concern”.
