Geraldton Port responds to COVID-19

Mid West Ports Authority has implemented industry leading practices

Since mid January, Mid West Ports Authority (WMPA) have been industry leaders in implementing screening processes for all vessels (cargo or cruise) arriving to Geraldton Port and have been at the forefront of the conversation since the first concern was raised.

The safety of our staff, stakeholders and the Mid West community is our highest priority and we take our obligations in reducing exposure of the COVID-19 virus extremely seriously.

MWPA is continuing to work closely with our stakeholders and Government and will continue to implement biosecurity and health measures over and above Australian Border Force Standards.

Social distancing 
In the interest of public health and safety, and to assist in reducing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19),  MWPA have implemented social distancing measures where practicable. As a result, our Marine Terrace, Chapman Road and Perth Ord Street offices will be closed until further notice. MWPA is still operational and office staff are still working and contactable by phone during office hours.
