The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has reached Western Australia and is now spreading throughout our community.
With your support we are ready to be there for all of you as we face community outbreak in regional WA.
As we respond to more COVID-19 patients our doctors, flight nurses and pilots will have a full plastic suit, a close-fitting mask and face shield, heavy boots and two pairs of rubber gloves. This is the personal protective gear they will wear for the entire flight. They will wear this in the scorching heat and long night shifts.
COVID-19 has been one of the greatest challenges to the RFDS in almost a century. It has tested our resolve and adaptability to provide uninterrupted service to the people of regional WA and we have met that challenge head on.
The next phase of the pandemic will put us to the test. We cannot meet this challenge alone. We need the help of our mates, like you, to help us be ready for whatever 2022 brings.
Please help us keep the RFDS promise to always be there
