Rio Tinto has advised that about 700 of the fly-in, fly-out workers at its Pilbara iron ore mines will temporarily relocate to Western Australia following the state’s decision to close its borders. Rio Tinto workers will be required to remain on site for 14 days in compliance with the state’s quarantine rules, as well as coronavirus lockdown rules when they are not working. BHP has also relocated about 300 FIFO workers to WA during the pandemic.
