COVID-19 FAQs for mental health services – Version 3

24 Aug 2022

In February 2022, the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist developed a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document to assist mental health services to appropriately discharge their duty of care to patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. These FAQs are intended to assist with clinical translation of the various COVID-19 related statutory requirements and local policies relevant to mental health care.

The document has been updated in light of the implementation of the Blue alert level of the WA Health COVID-19 Framework for System Alert and Response (SAR).
