COVID-19 Response

As Western Australia prepares for the COVID-19 coronavirus, WANADA and the alcohol and other drug sector is taking measures to reduce the impact on workers, services and the community. Our COVID-19 Response page will provide relevant information and updates. 

 Alcohol and other drug services have been identified as essential and will be maintained during the pandemic wherever possible.

In consultation with the sector, WANADA has developed Resources and Considerations for Alcohol and Other Drug Services: Risk Management and Response Planning for COVID-19 (as at 31 March 2020).
