COVID-19 Industry Updates
In prioritising the health and wellbeing of our staff, members and stakeholders, UDIA WA has implemented a range of measures in response to COVID-19 and official government advice.
Given the rapidly changing nature of government advice and requirements, we have put together the below resources detailing the up to date advice and stimulus measures created by the State and Federal Government and will continue to update this page as and when new information becomes available.

Updated requirements for entering UDIA WA Office
The WA State Government has mandated COVID-19 vaccinations for many Western Australian workplaces. Further to consultation and endorsement from UDIA WA Staff and Council, UDIA WA has implemented a new COVID-19 Vaccine Policy that requires all workers and visitors to be fully vaccinated prior to entering the workplace premises in Subiaco. This means that all personnel conducting work at the UDIA WA workplace must have received two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.
From 31 January 2022, all visitors to the UDIA WA workplace (Level 1, 3 Wexford Street, Subiaco) will be required to allow a staff member from UDIA to sight their vaccination status or proof of exemption. Anyone who doesn’t show evidence when requested will be denied entry.
In line with Western Australian government health directions, our event venues could also start to introduce mandatory entry requirements.
Please ensure you keep an eye on our event pages for any venue entry mandates and proof of vaccination requirements.
Please note that in line with the State Government policy, the requirement to manage the COVID-19 vaccinations for your organisation’s personnel solely resides with your organisation.
Further information from the State Government can be accessed via the following link here.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic UDIA WA produced ‘Ready to Rebuild’ which set out a clear set of priorities for government to support jobs and a stronger economy post COVID-19 and outlined our recommendations to State Government on how to assist our industry and the broader economic recovery following the impacts of COVID-19.
Our ‘Ready to Rebuild’ actions clearly map out priorities for the State Government to consider to keep the development industry operating and to transition successfully into a strong recovery.
We specifically look at how to stimulate the economy, prioritise infrastructure investment and cut red tape.
The actions that we recommend are rational, well considered opportunities to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on our industry and the broader economy.
