So @MarkMcGowanMP, now that Omicron is clearly spreading in WA, don’t you think it’s time to act? We are on track to follow NSW and Vic unless action is taken now to slow the spread. Our bubble has burst and NSW shows that if you let it rip the consequences will be dire.
All new local cases in WA today have been linked to previous cases. With the hard border still in place, the strongest vaccination mandates in the country, mask mandates etc WA is hardly taking a let it rip approach. Def need more messaging around need for better N95/P2 masks.
WA gov needs do do proper campaign about masks- I'm sure if more people knew the dramatic difference between a homemade mask/surgical mask and even a KN95 (which are easier to find than N95 at the moment), they would make the switch and slow transmission @MarkMcGowanMP @walabor
