Is it time to reopen WA’s border?

This month’s Mining People Poll wants to hear your opinion on the hard border closure. Is it time to open up the border? Tell us what you think. The poll is open until 31 October. Remember, all answers are anonymous.

Did you support WA introducing a hard border closure at the start of the pandemic?
How do you feel about WA’s hard border policy now?
And lastly, a little bit about you
Do you normally live in WA?
Do you work in the mining industry?
