Important COVID-19 information for visitors

Important information about COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Public Trustee continues to operate Monday – Friday from 8.30 am – 4.30 pm.

In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, clients and the WA Community from the risks posed by COVID-19, please note the following:

As per Federal Government advice, please stay home if you are unwell, have returned from overseas within the past 14 days, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID-19. If that is the case, simply contact the Public Trustee by email or telephone and staff will assist you.

Please carefully consider whether you need to come into the Public Trustee building.
