Our Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic: Latest Updates

Read the Latest on our Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic
With Western Australia slowly inching back to a more normal way of operating, ILA has adjusted our Pandemic Response Plan in line with Premier McGowan’s announcement of the start of Phase 4 of the WA Roadmap. The easing of restrictions is in part due to the diligent response of the broader community in maintaining physical distancing and good personal hygiene.
From the end of June, many coronavirus-imposed restrictions were eased for our state and business is almost running as per usual for us with a few additional precautions and requirements.
The following restrictions at Indigo and ILA have eased:
- Automatic entry doors at the Nedlands Experience Centre (display floor) are once again open
- Instead of telephoning to pre-screen customers for coronavirus symptoms, we are requesting people pre-advise us of any symptoms via SMS message prior to a face to face meeting or appointment.
- To ensure the 2sqm rule applies, a line has been placed on the floor at reception to ensure visitors remember the current requirement to social distance.
Phase 5 of the restrictions rollback will depend on the rate of infection rates locally and interstate and a tentative date will be considered closer to the time.
Indigo in partnership with ILA, will continue to monitor the pandemic situation closely and follow advice and directives from the state and federal departments of health in regards to delivering high quality services in the safest way possible.
