Shire of West Arthur

The WA Health Department is offering free pulse oximeters to vulnerable members of the community.

A pulse oximeter is a small peg-like device that clips onto your finger to read your heart rate and blood oxygen level.

Having a pulse oximeter allows you to participate in the free COVID at-home care program if you test positive, allowing symptoms to be tracked and provides support during your recovery.

If you are eligible you can pick one up from the Shire Admin Office. If you can answer ‘YES’ to the following questions you are eligible to receive a free pulse oximeter:

  • Are you non-Aboriginal and over 65?
  • Are you Aboriginal and over 50?
  • Are you pregnant?

One per household is available.

Please only come to the Shire to collect an oximeter if you are well and have not tested positive for COVID-19.
