WA Police Cracking Down On COVID Compliance For Transport & Freight Drivers
Vaccines could be mandatory
WA Police are cracking down on COVID-19 compliance, especially for transport and freight drivers.
Drivers must wear masks when stopping at roadhouses and fuel stations and undergo regular testing.
The need for the crackdown comes as two COVID-positive truckies from NSW entered the state last week.
Senior Sergeant Adrian Roberts says most regions are doing the right thing.
"Over the past couple of days, we ran an operation that saw us stopping approximately 50 truck drivers and pleased to say that the overwhelming majority of those drivers were compliant with their directions," he said.
WA Premier Mark McGowan recently hinted that mandatory vaccinations could happen for the industry.
