Pan Pacific Perth Quarantine Facility
Pan Pacific Perth has been seconded by the West Australian government to provide a safe quarantine facility for Returning Australians. Infection control is our primary remit ensuring the safety of our colleagues, our guests and the community. The quarantine accommodation is in a separate closed wing located on levels 10 to 23.
Pan Pacific Perth colleagues working in this Red Zone have been wearing full personal protective equipment since being seconded 1 November 2020. Our colleagues also undergo daily COVID-19 saliva testing and weekly swab testing. The Red Zone team have their own entrance and exit, staff room, bathrooms and changing rooms, they are never permitted to cross over into the Green Zone. There is no face to face interaction with any quarantine guest with our colleagues other than at registration. Our colleagues have volunteered for this role and we thank them for their service.
Strict protocols are in place for all workers in this area including WA Health security and health contract workers and Australian Defence Force personnel. There is a separate entrance to the hotel on Adelaide Terrace and dedicated guest and service lifts.
The air conditioning system is individual for each room with no recirculation between rooms or corridors. The air intake is directly from outside then filtered providing 100% fresh air to each room and extraction is all at rooftop level.
Meals for our quarantine guests adhere to the guidelines provided by WA Health and have been enhanced significantly ensuring quality and variety across a broad spectrum of palettes. Meals are served in disposable containers and rubbish is double bagged and disposed of separately. Guest laundry is also handled separately.
The West Australian contract security team is responsible for all deliveries to quarantine guests and guest movement on the floors. There are no front of house cross over points between Green and Red Zones.
